I am currently on a free plan with cloudflare DNS Hosting.
I would like to find out what the “DDoS attack mitigation” is, asking the support the answer was “This is only available for ENTERPRISE accounts” and they quit the chat. Kind of unfriendly on “new” customers who ask what the upgrade would be.
Anyway, I still do not understand the feature, so I need to ask:
Does the FREE plan include any automatic detection or mitigation of DDos Attacks?
Or do I need to do anything manual during attack (this is what the chat told me…I need to click on “I am under attack”…
Do I need to set the domain to proxied to have any DDos mitigation? Or does it also work on simple DNS only? (I assume it would help on attacks on the domain, but not on the IP ?)
So - when using the FREE plan, do I already have some kind of DDos protection? What is the benefit of the “I am under Attack” button (only available for ENTERPRISE I was told). Is this for really high-volume DDos Attacks?
Thanks my friends
