      This. The majority of DDoS originate in a handful of third-world countries that don't properly enforce laws against computer misuse. If we simply cut off bad actors who refuse to police their local network, then most sites wouldn't need to resort to things like cloudflare.

        >I'm a SysOps engineer at a fairly large online casino. (I think this article is relevant regardless of whether you think that in general casinos are ethical or not, I’m just mentioning it for context). We have around 4 million monthly active users. We had been happy Cloudflare customers since 2018 on the "Business" plan which has some neat features and costs $250/month for "unlimited" traffic.

        Yeah so basically instead of calling sales getting a CYA and validating it by someone in the company 100% the IT guy saw an ad, probably read none of the fine print, and then rolled with it under the radar for a while till their site got reviewed. In the business world ANY time you see unlimited assume there is a cost after X amount of usage. It's like hostgator can offer you UNLIMITED storage and bandwidth if you need it but will only offer X tiers for Y price.

        Most "unlimited" shit means something different in the business world which is why you always fricking make a call get it in clear as day writing as to what they mean.

        Things it could possibly mean
        -Unlimited traffic within same region
        -Unlimited traffic defined as 1TB before excess charges
        -Unlimited to 1 domain only
        -Unlimited for X time

        This is why you always get the sales people to tell you it no fewer than 5 times and get someone else on the business to also sign off on the review of it. Sure it takes more time and a little effort but covering your ass so if something like this happens, you can pop it to your companies lawyer services and go about your day.

      They weren't. if you pissed someone off in a game you would get ddosed. Websites would occasionally just be down for days at a time because some skiddie was mad about getting banned. Cloudflare was considered a godsend for a time because it completely eliminated that class of issues. Then zoomers grew up thinking ddoses were no big deal and so got mad at cloudflare for daring to solve them.

        It's a problem that ISPs should have solved, not an independent company.
        ISPs can literally simply offload on their vast amounts of bandwidth, and distribute the load to all of their customers.
        It *should* be an insurance as part of the service agreement with the ISP.
        But ISPs are pieces of shit so they want to touch their nipples and do the barebones for the customer.

          ISP's already cache their business customers static and have done so for a long time, squid has been used by tons of companies in the past for this exact reason.

          Back before cloudflare ISP's were still struggling with tons of shit, it was actually possible to DDoS people's home IP. Hell as late as peak popularity gmod shit was NOTORIOUS for those things. You sound like a Zoomie who "thinks" they know some massive scheme when it was just always about hardware limitations

    ddos is a software issue and cloudflare brings nothing to the table
    they only say this rhetoric because they want to be trusted to man in the middle attack every server they proxy
    a properly configured host already black holes ddos traffic, and a properly configured webserver is immune to loris attacks and other shit script attacks
    that's why loic stopped working everywhere besides shitty rural IP addresses where they invest nothing in configuration
    even cloudflares security for removing bots is a joke, a captcha that requires a click that only exists to get JavaScript permission by that click to fingerprint your browser, and a cookie which aims to spy on you across IP addresses which the proxied websites can't see
    imagine how much data cloudflare sits on

      out of nowhere
      My brother in Christ, they provided a much sought after service at a time when said service was basically unheard of. And their marketing is good, you can't deny that.
      Multiple times they took massive (business) risks in how they marketed (and still do) their services, basically inventing a new way of doing business (similar how pornhub has done it with porn financed by ads). Right now you can get their services for free while your website is actively attacked.

      It helps that using their services comes by the nature of it with a strong vendor lock in, especially with the other services they can easily provide along the way (e.g. usage metrics, CDN, user profiling).

      You don't have to like them and you can and should criticize them for their practices but don't make it easy for them to weasel out of a proper response by providing them with the grounds for "everyone that criticizes us has at best no clue what hes talking about and at worst simply lies".

        do just regular CDNs like Akami provide adequate protection against DDoS since an attacker would basically be trying to DDoS the whole CDN instead of just you?
