Can Cloudflare protect my website from a DDoS attack?

Can Cloudflare protect my website from a DDoS attack?

The information in this tutorial applies only if you have already activated Cloudflare from your Site Tools. If you have activated the service directly with Cloudflare you can configure the different settings from your dashboard with them.

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.
