Can Cloudflare protect my website from a DDoS attack?

If your website is experiencing a DDoS attack, then Cloudflare could help mitigate it.

The Cloudflare service has an option designed to be used when under a DDoS attack and to enable it, go to Site Tools > Speed > Cloudflare Settings and change the value of the Cloudflare Security Settings option to I’m Under Attack from the drop-down menu.

When this option is enabled, every visitor for your website will see a processing page for several seconds. During that time Cloudflare will verify and confirm if the hit is indeed coming from a legitimate visitor and not from a bot.
