Are you not using Cloudflare? If not, do that. It's free and will solve your problem. They serve everything for you and cache it.
Edit: I would also recommend changing your origin IP once you get on cloudflare and keeping it a secret. Only share it with Cloudflare and don't make an obvious DNS record for it like origin.saudiarabiaisisis.com. Your site seems a likely target for a DDOS. If you do it right you are pretty much bulletproof, but 99% of people ignore this advice and do it wrong so their site goes down indefinitely and they throw their hands up (see: private torrent trackers)
Edit2: He appears to be setting up Cloudflare!
It would really be inconvenient if Jones was dropped by his website provider Cloudflare.
You could file a complaint against "violent threats and harassment" on Cloudflare IP servers like, say...
It would be a shame if his site suddenly became inactive and he had no other outlet...
No, you don't need to go that far. Submit a complaint at [link] -- and since they have communicated with you via email asking for detailed personal information, I would begin by filing the complaint as phishing.
God damn, they're such fuck ups they can't even setup SSL right :/
SSL isn't hard.
There's even a god damn web server that'll handle it for you.
CloudFlare is a free speech won't ban anything bastion.
Being Nazis is one level of stupid. This is an extra level of stupid.
It means MangaDex was getting too much traffic that Cloudflare finally went "Yeah, you're not a small site anymore and you'll need to start paying for us". Hopefully, going off Cloudflare's plans, they only need to use the $20/month tier?
It'd be a "cease and desist" letter, hopefully.
You may be able to go after their hosting company and report copyright infringement. It is unlikely that they are actually hosting the site out of Bangladesh. This site may be able to determine who hosts them. (If it says Cloudflare, don't worry, Cloudflare accepts abuse reports here - have them forward to both the host and the owner.) Usually the hosting company will have some form of copyright abuse form - in the US, this is also called a DMCA complaint or takedown notice.
You may also be able to report them to PayPal or whatever payment processor they use, although this is a little more difficult.
If you are affected by this you can fix this by using an alternative IP address for imgur.
Imgur uses a service called cloudflare to host their websites. cloudflare have a lot of IPs for their service. (see here if you are interested: [link] )
anyway, by adding these two lines to your hosts file you can redirect your traffic to a working IP:
Mac/Linux users hosts file is at /etc/hosts
Windows users your hosts file is at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
(You will need to open notepad as an administrator to be able to save to this file) right click notepad -> open as administrator then use the open dialog to find the file and edit it.
Please remember to remove this once it is back up as you will not be taking advantage of cloudflares ability to load balance across the world by forcing imgur to just these IPs
I run a few high traffic sites that get DDOS's regularly.
I've since ended up with the following winning combination.
Set up a NEW server with a new IP address. Then set up Nginx so it's serving your website through an IPv6 address not IPv4. Most Botnets aren't IPv6 capable. Cloudflare doesn't care and it'll proxy it for you. Then firewall off that IPv6 address so only cloudflare can access it using the list at [link]
Then set up a Amazon S3 bucket for all your static assets (css, js, png's, jpg's, etc). Set up cloudflare so s3bucket-xtnodes.s3.amazon.com or whatever is CNAME aliased to static.xtnodes.com and then set a cloudflare rule so everything is heavily cached and it'll rarely, if ever, hit your S3 bucket. Then edit the HTML to point to your static asset host for all of that stuff.
For the dynamic PHP, consider making a quick Laravel PHP site and use an in-memory cache like Redis for all the dynamic stuff rather than a backend MySQL instance. MySQL uses disk too much, but Redis will help a lot.
If you skip the redis stuff, but want an infrastructure that can handle the DDOS, try nearlyfreespeech.net
If you want to roll your own DDOS protected VPS, check out this thread for some good hosts
I'm about to go to the park with my kids for a few hours, but if you want help setting it all up just get a VPS and update it and I can help you out in a few hours. I also have a ton of Amazon credits to burn that I'm happy to throw at the cause and some unused VPS's for redundant backends.
You should be able to handle this with a VPS with 1 or 2 gigs of memory as long as you have that front-end and back-end infrastructure in place and the DDOS asshats don't know your real IP address.
Προς το παρόν μια απλή ρύθμιση DNS στις network settings του λειτουργικού αρκεί, δεν χρειάζεται καν να μπλέξουμε με τις ρυθμίσεις του router.
Καλά για την απόφαση μπλοκαρίσματος αυτή καθ'αυτή δεν έχω να πω πολλά, μόνο πως τόσο η ΕΔΠΠΙ όσο και οι επίσημοι διανομείς και κάτοχοι πνευματικών δικαιωμάτων είναι εκτός τόπου και χρόνου.
One thing to note about it:
It looks like CloudFlare may not be selling your userdata (or explicitly naming you as the one using it), but it does look like they are giving it away for free in the form of aggregate data.
You can't set up a self-hosted solution that works like Clouldflare, at least not without spending a boatload of money.
Cloudflare has 151 locations spread around the world and incredibly complex infrastructure in place.
Cloudflare offers a free tier that includes world class distributed DNS combined with free CDN service. It's unbeatable.
Answer: Just use Cloudflare.
It prevents website requests from hitting your host directly. If you have someone who helps you with your site they will know.
When you get a lot of traffic from reddit, it tends to take websites down - just fyi, so your site isn't down with the attention here.
It says it is made by NoAdBlock. I don't know, but they might be associated with Cloudflare. But if it's not Cloudflare, then maybe we could report it for bad behavior, etc?
EDIT: Cloudflare has an abuse form that allows reporting malware. I'm pretty sure that from the user's perspective, this qualifies as malware since it's intentionally causing breakage.
If the server really won't come back, we shoot it off the starboard bow.
....what I mean is, it's a very troubled piece of software from CloudFlare for connection acceleration and response differential compression. But either due to our scale or we just have monitoring detailed enough to notice, it has severe issues. Enough that we disabled it for now.
Also, happy cake day!
Ne pričajte gluposti, to je stranica od cloudflarea, koja kešira stranice jutarnjeg, a usput i štiti od ddos napada i slično. Možebitno se spajaš sa neke ip adrese koja je označena kao problematična u njihovom sustavu.
There you go. They will just quit the free service the moment they decide you need to. If you get enough traffic I give a good bet that the sales department starts mailing you.
You should just put cloudflare in front of your website. It’s free for personal sites, or $20/mo for pro plan. Then you never have to worry about this on accident (reddit hug) or on purpose (ddos).
Note: I do not work for cloudflare, I just use them at work.
Yes -- you're overreacting.
CloudFlare has 4 millions customers, ranging from national governments, fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and to personal websites. CloudFlare is a microcosm of the internet. You can review who some of the customers using our service here: [link]
Just like the internet as a whole, some "bad" (your opinion) websites exist out there. Some "bad" websites might exist on CloudFlare's platform -- it is self service after all. Anyone can sign up for a free level account if they'd like to.
If you come across a website you feel is somehow malicious or abusive then report it -- it's that simple. [link]
CloudFlare is not a hosting provider, however. We do not host websites or the content on websites, and as such we have no capacity to remove content we are not hosting.
"their lack of transparency is somewhat alarming given their anonymizing abilities."
What exactly is this even in reference to? Lack of transparency in what way? Are you referring to the fact that we are a reverse proxy? We are quite transparent -- in fact we publish a Transparency Report regarding law enforcement inquiries for customer data. [link] (the 1st half of 2016 update will be out shortly).
Disclaimer: I run CloudFlare's Trust & Safety team.
Yes, I have reported them here: [link].
I highly suggest everyone do this for safety reasons.
You can also report to their site domain here: [link]. Their site mods have tried getting users to stop making calls to violence because they have been warned that continuing to do so will get their site shut down.
CloudFlare has denial-of-service attack protection. Normally that screen looks like this (I got that straight from the CloudFlare website as you can tell by the URL).
I've seen some websites use it. Voat was going down so much, I guess that's their solution.
If it's static-ish content you could use CloudFlare. We do it for large sites and, for the most part, it works well and saves on bandwidth.
It sits in front of your website and caches your content (also adds some security). So most requests never hit web host. Google Analytics and similar will all still work as they operate client side. Your web server logs, however, won't show most of the traffic unless you put some special things in place.
It's also mostly free.
Blocked by only two ISPs; how pointless.
Change your DNS and I bet it'll works again. The way the government forces ISPs to block sites is insanely easy to bypass and legal.
Speak to HotWheels ( email : .) as he OWNS 8chan , report CP to CloudFlare. VPNs will not protect pedos.
If any laws are being broke, get them v&. I hate pedos , but I don't really understand what it has to do with KIA as we have no power over 8chan or ownership.
Also, If you are actively seeking CP on any website. I suggest you get some help.
Firefox also supports some additional security measures that Chrome doesn't fully or natively implement. It's also got a great mobile experience for people who like to read.
I don't know what you are on about. Discord uses HTTPS, that means any communication between your client and the server is encrypted, which makes every JSON payload also encrypted, so your message cannot be read.
Just run a Wireshark and send some messages. All you are going to see is an SSL stream between you and CloudFare see here: https://www.cloudflare.com/case-studies/discord/
> until the first people go to jail because of something they wrote on Discord. Censorship, surveillance
This is just straight up bullshit, the reason why your so called "surveillance and censorship" is possible is because Discord allows bots to exist. Bots behave just like a normal account, except they can be automated for example to respond in a way to certain messages, log messages, user activity and so on. There's a ToS for bot usage, which states that logging user data without notifying the user or allowing them to opt out is strictly illegal. What you can do against it is either don't join or message in that particular discord server. Also the bot must be invited to the server, meaning only the server owners can do it.
Hey /u/Fatherlorris I noticed that whenever you post a new comic, your site loads like s... well, poorly (I'm from Europe).
May I suggest using Cloudflare? There's a free plan that should be enough.
Let's Encrypt is great. Cloudflare is terrible.
Here are some reasons not to use Cloudflare:
* It's not really free. It's like a drug dealer "First ones free".
* Shared SSL certificates
* Forced to use Comodo for SSL
* Can't use Let's Encrypt for SSL
* Can't use your own SSL
* Decrypts SSL traffic, breaking End-To-End Encryption.
* Cooperates with tyrannical governments
* Provides services to terrorists, child pornographers, and so on
* Has no "vetting" process for new customers
* Does not protect your website from hacking
* Doesn't provide any value to 99% of websites
* Cloudflare's CEO is an ego-maniac who believes he controls the entire internet.
> Keyless SSL requires that Cloudflare decrypt, inspect and re-encrypt traffic for transmission back to a customer’s origin.
By doing that, Cloudflare is violating the trust between users and server operators and making the SSL certificate itself worthless. A website cannot be considered "Secure" if the traffic is decrypted by a man in the middle.
So to answer your question, ditch Cloudflare and use Let's Encrypt.
That's an interesting article, thanks for sharing! As far as I am aware, even by blocking the connections using iptables (or any software firewall), you're still getting the traffic which might hit hard your CPU, and it can bottleneck your bandwidth as well.
As far as I know, the most efficient and definitive way to mitigate a DDOS attack is by "blackholing" the traffic, but that requires a network infrastructure with a lot of bandwidth, that's why cloudflare is so popular when protecting from DDOS attacks - that traffic will never hit your infrastructure.
There's a bit more context on this article, if you're interested: https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/ddos/glossary/ddos-blackhole-routing/

The site uses CloudFare services to protect itself from attacks such as DDOS and uses a GoDaddy domain (the url).
If you want to stop people from accessing it then everyone should file a complaint so that it could be brought down.

The answer to all your questions and all the security issues is by dropping in CloudFlare in front of your domain. Gives you DNS that propagates within seconds, masks your networks public IP behind their servers and supports dynamic IP addresses. Since you're on a home network the speed is definitely not on a server provider level, but most of your assets will be cached by CloudFlare and served directly from their high bandwidth servers. You also get a very powerful DDoS protection and security overall. On top of that you get a SSL certificate for your domain. And the best part of it is that all of this is completely free.
To enable CloudFlare on your domain, simply change nameservers of your domain to CloudFlares nameservers and then wait for the change to propagate - after that your site will be enabled and you can handle the DNS directly from CloudFlare, just make sure your A record goes through CloudFlare (the cloud logo) and not bypasses it.
Do not send emails, send a formal DMCA Take Down notice. I have success in the past submitting a DMCA notice here:
There are numerous examples of DMCA notices on Internet. Adapt yours according. Is not necessary to register your copyright, but i noticed everyone work faster when you register and submit your copyright registration documentation.
You can submit the same notice to the Cloudflare, the host and directly to the website.
An effective way is to report them to Google or to Cloudflare (only if they are actually using CF, check if they're SSL certificate is from CF).
Cloudflare usually responds to abuse reports within a few hours. Google takes some more time apparently...
Google phishing report form
Cloudflare abuse report form
Taking this a step further.. If your router allows for custom firewall rules, you can grab the cloudflare IP set that will talk to your server and only port forward if from one of them.
There you can see that he is using fake data. Only thing you could do is writing an E-Mail to the Registrar company ([link]) and to Cloudflare ([link] , he uses it to disguise his server ip/host)
We don't really know what goes on inside DDG, but at least they've promised to not track your requests, and that's one of their differentiators. If they are keeping their promise, there's no record of your search.
Now, suppose they began to use a CDN. Cloudflare, for example, states they do log requests. So then, there would be no difference between the big guys and DDG.
My concern is that creating your own rules is impractical and expensive. Blocking by IP Address? Fools errand in the world on botnets. Creating my own string matching for SQL injection? There are so many ways for these to be written. Maybe I'm missing something but I prefer how CloudFlare does this.
Well, you do realize that the IP address 220.127.116.11 belongs to Cloudflare, right? Or that 18.104.22.168 also belongs to Cloudflare, correct? And you know what Cloudflare does, right?
If you can answer those three questions, you will understand why you jumped to conclusions based on nothing conclusive at all.
edit: added URLs
Yes, every time you create a new TLS connection it does a new handshake and generates new ciphers used only for that session. Ditto for SSH and basically every other encrypted protocol still in use. This is the basic foundation of modern secure infrastructure. Even at Chili's.
I use Cloudflare for all my sites.
It's completely free to get an SSL certificate. Instead of installing a certificate, you just point your nameservers at them (easy to do in your hosting account) and turn SSL on in the settings.
You can also set up a free custom rule, which forwards all traffic from http to https.
Another great (free) benefit of cloudflare, is you can cache your site and have it delivered over their CDN. This makes your web pages load quicker and uses less data for your users.
In CloudFlare you can enable "I'm Under Attack Mode" which will verify that visitors to your site are not bots if you are under Layer 7 attack. Also, I recommend firewalling off all traffic to your machine except the CloudFlare IPs if your server is under direct attack. You can find a list @ [link]
No, that's not how random number generators work. They will always give the same results from the same seed, as long as you don't change the RNG or its implementation.
That's why some people go through elaborate lengths to get a truly random seed for their RNG: [link]
This pops up on the main page of lodgame.com. Still large parts of the website are down despite this future tech.
This page ([link]) is currently offline. However, because the site uses Cloudflare's Always Online™ technology you can continue to surf a snapshot of the site. We will keep checking in the background and, as soon as the site comes back, you will automatically be served the live version. Always Online™ is powered by Cloudflare ([link])
We use Cloudflare to help cache the site and handle heavy traffic loads. Cloudflare occasionally decides that a certain IP is a spammer or involved in a DDOS and will give them a captcha -- this should be quite rare. Sorry for the trouble!
with the way you've been responding it doesn't look so much like you're learning, but hoping for someone to feed you exactly what you need without developing any kind of understanding about what it is you're doing.
if you can't even be arsed to go review some basic intro resources on the very basic building blocks of the web you have no business running a website.
cloudflare itself has a very good course. start there.
if there's anything you don't understand after that, do some basic research first and then if you still can't figure it out, ask. outline what it is you're trying to do (the goal), what you've tried so far, what parts you think you don't understand, and what you've found to try to answer it. demonstrate some effort in trying to solve the problem instead of expecting people to feed you all the answers and you'll get a more receptive audience.
Here is a Browser Checker and firefox instructions to enable DoH.
It's not about anyone living at your house using the site, it's about potentially anyone within your ISP's IP block (some of which are even national wide for mobile ISPs), and IPs are often banned via subnet instead of individually
While you can pretty easily spoof the sender address of a UDP packet, getting any sort of reply (or establishing a connection with TCP) across the publicly routed internet is pretty hard/requires a lot of trust (BGP hijacking). I don't doubt you got something demonstrated, but I doubt that it was what you think it was, or is applicable to the public internet.
It was a pretty convoluted plan to get to the end result, but I figure he didn't care about getting caught for the initial obvious hacking he did because it was a distraction so authorities wouldn't notice him sneaking in the code he needed for whatever Archlight in.
There's a kernel of truth in the idea of screwing up domain names can screw up the Internet, and that there are people specifically in charge of making sure they don't get tampered with. Articles about the DNSSEC Root Signing Ceremony here and here if you're interested.

Sending CC details unencrypted using base64 is not even remotely secure. Which I doubt the owner of this site really cares about.
If you delete the div elements for the shadowbox the site is completely a shell behind it.
Posting fake data sends a post request using base64 to /process with seems to always return a status 200.
The ip address for the post requests suggest they are protected around CloudFlare. It might be worth sending an email to CloudFlare or file a report here [link] they are pretty good with not providing support for these kind of websites.
Mind you it won't take them down but it will make things a pain.
If you got tricked I would contact your bank and get your card cancelled.
CF simply works as a CDN/MITM between the visitor and the website. This doesn't need much research, it is well known. The traffic goes from the visitor to CF. Then they send it to your server. Even all IPs you will get are from CF (with an extra header with the original IP.) If you read the SSL section it will talk about 2 SSL certificates: from CF to the visitor and from your server to CF. I really think it's clear for anyone to see that CF can see all traffic from all of those companies.
Now while I sound so negative, I use CF myself too for a small site (and some others.) They are pretty good, protect well against DDOS but even just spam-bots, good CDN with proper caching and they even have free "universal" SSL. This is all for $0. Obviously in a way, you pay by sacrificing the privacy of your visitors and business. Not so relevant for my small sites though, but more so for the ones in OP.
edit: I am not saying CF "needs" this against DDOS, I am just saying this is really how they work.
Great information, but I think you need to feed the hamsters that are powering your host.
You might want to consider utilizing a content delivery network (CDN) if utilizing a better host is not possible; this one is free and supports WordPress sites with relative ease.
Not Hirez' servers that were faulty. One of Telias' transatlantic cables were cut. Cloudflare servers had quite the trouble: [link]
This caused trouble for services & sites such as Reddit, 4chan, puush, Twitter, Newgrounds & Twitch (at least those I had trouble with)
Upvote this selfpost for visibility
You'll need to allow based on the list that Cloudflare keeps posted here.
The IP list doesn't change often if at all, but if you want to automate against the list, they maintain an ipv4 list here and an ipv6 list here.
To put it simply: You pay a Registrar (GoDaddy, etc.) for your domain name, and they put it in a database that feeds the DNS servers.
It is much, much more complicated than that in reality. [link]

Likely just someone using a custom tool or using curl to test stuff.
You can set whatever UA you want in a curl like so:
curl [link] -H "User-Agent: You are really courageous."
that will then show up in your logs, and Cloudflare logs, with what you see there. You may want to work with the Cloudflare support team to see if they can look into other internal instances of this UA popping up which might lead them to finding some type of malicious service doing generic scanning, and they may be willing to add this to a black list if it looks shady enough.
I also believe you can create a user agent rule (depending on your plan) and block that specific user agent if it seems to be doing weird stuff based on your logs.
> This article claims that Dropbox runs as a front-end to AWS s3
No, it claims that it used to.

It's definitely true that Amazon is the market leader and expert in this space. No disagreement there.
> And this is just laughable "If you're distributing data all over the world rather than putting it in a $600 million data center in rural Kansas, you can get a lot more performance out of it." -- they are seriously claiming that sharding bits of your files across thousands of consumer-class storage devices sitting all over the world at the end of internet links of various quality will end up being "more performant".
Yes, we are claiming that. Isn't getting closer to the edge what Cloudflare just launched? [link]. In fact, what's the point of CDN at all?
Distributing across a wide variety of nodes with high variance allows us to return data as soon as the fastest nodes return. Enormous parallelism gives us unbeatable throughput. If you're concerned about consumer-class storage devices, do you think S3 is all SSDs? They're spinning metal just like everything else.
Why so negative?
Yes. They offer two services - one, you (the hosted company) share your private key with them; two, you provide separately authenticated access to your private key via a key server. In both cases they can still see all of your traffic.
Om dessa medier hade haft någon tekniskt kunnig person till hands skulle de haft CloudFlare framför sina sidor. Istället har de en halvdan lösning från ett svenskt företag som inte kan någonting om nätverksattacker...
CF har mitigerat de tre största DDoS-attackerna i historien, varav den senaste var på 400 Gbps!
You could use a free CloudFlare ([link]) account to power the SSL using the flexible method that way they will get valid SSL experience and it won't cost you anything. Plus the DNS and caching services they offer are pretty good all for free.
Why not use Cloudflare on top of wherever you're hosted? The free plan should be more than sufficient.
Cloudflare is amazing at caching static content, be it web pages, images or files. Only the first request from a particular zone will be served by your server, the rest from then on will be served by Cloudflare. You can set how long each type of / specific resources should be cached.
Even if your host goes down for a little while (very unlikely since you're only serving cache-able, static resources) Cloudflare can continue serving your site as if nothing happened.

>Three redirections are always going to be slower than one.
Not necessarily true, are you familiar with how CloudFlare Argo works? Instead of being routed through random servers (which is how Tor works), you are routed through servers dynamically chosen to be closest along the route to your destination, and often servers hosted on more robust internet connections than you may otherwise be routed through just following the IP address. Realize that every time you visit a website anywhere on the internet you are going through many hops, just not in a way that makes you anonymous the way Tor might. And you typically do not notice huge performance impacts from being routed this way.
CloudFlare claims that this method actually allows users of their tunneling network to experience latency lower than you'd get without using their network, and in my networking admin experience I can kind of back that up, seeing as much as 20%-30% improvements in latency over Argo.
(This is not an endorsement of CloudFlare, lmao)
u/dhaavi can chime in for SPN's operation specifically, but my understanding is that it does work somewhat similarly to CloudFlare Argo, in the sense that the servers are chosen more smartly than just "random" Tor style.
It's possible that something on your network is compromised and is participating in an NTP Amplification Attack. I would investigate which host is sending these requests and then see about running a rootkit scan. It looks like Malwarebytes has one in beta.
Yeah that's why Cloudflare is literally filming a wall of lava lamps to generate whatever encryption they need
Also I've seen a few programs that tell you to move your mouse randomly and they use that to generate an encryption key
Encrypted DNS is DOH (DNS over HTTPS) turn that on in Preferences -> General -> Network Settings (It defaults to Cloudflare's 126.96.36.199 but you can change it to a custom resolver). ESNI can currently only be turned on via about:config, and adding or enabling the network.security.esni.enabled key. Once you've done that and restarted the browser you can test everything's working with Cloudflare's ESNI Checker.
Well, apparently it must just be their http traffic. If nicehash had an enterprise account, they could put their stratums behind cloudflare spectrum to protect against this.
> I think it is a good idea to use your own domain, because you can leave one service and go to another and everyone still emails to (what they see as) the same inbox & address.
Yeah, this is one of the biggest reasons I use a custom domain.
This way, I can keep my email address consistent my entire life but still be able to switch services.
Also, double check your domain security and setup basic countermeasures like Registrar Lock, DNSSEC, Cloudflare etc..
I don't think the roots support TLS atm... so these external Resolvers are still quering without TLS to fill requests from the roots themselves.
Some good reading:
YMMV and keep in mind that these services only uses a few DNSBL feeds where there are almost a hundred different free and subscription feeds available.
Everything is a trade-off and nothing is going to give you 100% privacy.. just trying to make people aware instead of just listening to the sales pitches of these services. You can choose speed over security or over privacy but not what I would recommend. You will find over time that DNS Will get more hardened.
For the affected domain:
Once cloudflare drops it and we can see nameservers can file abuse notice with hosting company as well.
CloudFlare actually has a pretty good writeup on their DDoS mitigation techniques.
A web server that is being protected by CloudFlare, is called an "origin server".
CloudFlare has several tools to protect your site against DDoS:
Of course, you can do these things on your network, with things like a firewall and a cache layer (e.g. squid, haproxy, or nginx). So why is CloudFlare so much better at it?
CloudFlare has massive scale: their network map shows you just how massive it is. Each dot on that map is an entire datacenter. Anyone attacking your site through CloudFlare would have to take down every single one of those locations. Each one has insanely huge firewalls and obscene amounts of bandwidth. If one datacenter is up, your site is up.
Enormous scale, lots of technology and experience.
You might look into using a service like CloudFlare. I've never used it personally, but it should be able to cache your static file at hops close to all your users. The devil is in the details as usual.
Neither, it's hosted by Zoho. This way I can change my domain registrar or host any time without affecting my emails. You did hear it right.
Zoho offers you 25 mailboxes under one domain for free.
I have a few work-around for the 3 or so domains I need emails with, they're all free from different providers.
One more domain and I'll have to actually pay for email hosting. Luckily MXRoute handles unlimited domains and email accounts for $15 per year. I hear their service is great!
By the way it's also a good idea to separate your DNS management from your registrar/web host. Sign up for cloudflare and manage your DNS from there, as opposed to from Namecheap or cPanel provided by Bluehost.
You can control the TTL from cloudflare, so switching hosts doesn't have to take more than half an hour.
I agree with everyone else that for a business in 2015, yes, you need SSL/HTTPS. Even if "just" a domain cert rather than the swanky extended validation ones. So a $9/year PositiveSSL/Namecheap one is fine.
The only options I am aware of are:
Those are the free options. I'd just spend $9/year this year and next year see if "Let's Encrypt" has come online. Cloudflare is fine but you have to be ready to put the site behind them and that is a bigger question than just simply about SSL (look into it).
Afaik listen die meisten Cloud anbieter wie Cloudflare alle IPv4 ranges, die die verwenden.
Wäre also durchaus möglich, TCP 443 und UDP 16384 - 32768 (Angabe von BBB) für diese IP Ranges outbound für new und established zu erlauben. Eine allgemeingültige allow inbound established noch dazu und dann sollte eigentlich alles im Lot sein.
I've got the same question. I loaded up [link] and it isn't showing Secure DNS is being used. Setting the Secure DNS flag in brave://flags doesn't seem to change the behavior either. I wonder if there is further clarification on the "when possible" part?
Edit: From viewing the GitHub issue on the update notes, it looks like they are using [link] to verify if it is working. I'm not getting the same results they are getting, even with the Secure DNS flag set.
I’m on macOS Catalina 10.15.4 (issue notes indicate this only works on Mac and Windows with Android coming soon).
They are still only doing transfers, but Cloudflare promises only to charge what they have to pay. No promotional pricing though.
Though I do know not everyone likes Cloudflare.
You can use CloudFlare free account if you just want DNS. They have no restrictions on its use for businesses: [link]
You only need to go to the Pro plan if you want the extra features, which are WAF, Polish, Mirage, more Page and Firewall rules, instant SSL activation, zone lockdown, enhanced Rate limit, more frequent crawling for offline availability (they serve cached pages), longer analytics, and 2 hour email response time vs. 8 hour. All the specifics are here: [link]
I opted to go with CloudFlare as I can see some of the Pro plan features being useful for my primary domain, but I can get my other domains I would want DNS only on a free plan, and I didn't want to split across different providers.
The debug mode uses pen's hand. So that means the testing is a "pen test" which is short for the term "penetration test"
Penetration testing is the term used by people in cyber security. It's an exercise used to test the security of devices and networks.
It's a bit of a stretch in logic... but it works.
Det er helt ufarlig. Siden du ser tilhører CloudFlare, som er et Content Delivery Network brukt av flere nettsider, deriblant nettsiden du forsøker å besøke nå. En av CloudFlares funksjoner er å stoppe mistenkelig trafikk til siden. Du kan lese mer om funksjon her: https://www.cloudflare.com/security/malicious-bot-abuse/
The only difference between their pricing tiers is what features they provide; they have no requirements for eCommerce sites to use a certain tier (despite their slightly confusing wording).
You should read through the features of the different tiers on their plans page and decide which plan you want. If you want to upload a custom SSL certificate (e.g. EV certificates) then you want at least their "Business" tier - but if you're simply using LetsEncrypt, then you may as well let Cloudflare generate it for you (which they do for free). Remember to keep your current SSL cert on your server so the connection from Cloudflare to your server is also encrypted.
But again, all of this is written on their plans page (+ their excellent documentation). Googling is mighty helpful here.
Well, the article only uses Cloudflare as an example. But Cloudflare have been pretty vocal about 188.8.131.52 (and 184.108.40.206) as being privacy-focused.
> What makes 220.127.116.11 more secure than other public DNS services?
> Many of these companies collect data from their DNS customers to use for commercial purposes. Alternatively, 18.104.22.168 does not mine any user data. Logs are kept for 24 hours for debugging purposes, then they are purged.
If the website is protected by Cloudflare, you can report it here.
They will give you an option to have the report sent to the website server host, or the website owner. Sending it to the owner will likely do nothing, but sending it to the web server host is integral to having people realise what kind of websites these hosts are supporting and having them shut down.
Props for the CF Access write up, but using an IP blacklist is a pretty brittle way to approach this, unless you automated the ingestion of https://www.cloudflare.com/ips-v4 through some scripting. Using Authenticated Origin Pulls is simple to setup and less susceptible to breaking or mis-configurations should addresses change over time.
What? None of those do anything the same reason as a CDN. A CDN insures speeds no matter the distance, sure libraries can be installed locally, but there is a ton of info that should always be on a CDN unless you don't care about speeds outside of wherever your original data center is.
/u/ToMissTheMarc2 I didn't know Microsoft even had a CDN, but yes, CDN's will always be used, they allow, especially things such as pictures, to be downloaded fast no matter where in the world you are. That is their main point. Cloudflare is one of (if not the absolute best) CDN that is used by millions of websites. All content saved to a CDN is redistribute to all other nodes across the world, so no matter where you are, you still get fast speeds (instead of waiting seconds to download an image from some other data server.)

Something like this? Unless it is crazy huge.
Last month Akamai absorbed a 600 Gbps attack against this guy
New tools are coming online but probably dip too heavily into profit margins for ol EA.
Just some tangential information. Custom domains on Squarespace don't let you use SSL AFAIK and as such placing your blog under yourwebsite.com/blog might give a Google NO SSL hit to your entire customs domain as opposed to the hit on just blog.yourwebsite.com subdomain. Just another point to take into account. The benefit of self hosted platforms like Wordpress or Ghost is definitely SSL support. That said if Squarespace is still your choice, I suggest using at least the free CloudFlare SSL service.
I'm going to have to stop you there -- Don't listen to this if you're expecting to drop CloudFlare's Flexible SSL and have it be safe for ecommerce. The free SSL at CloudFlare that's flexible is nice but it doesn't encrypt the traffic 100% of the way. If you're going to go the CloudFlare route you need to use the Full/Full (Strict) option and setup something that finish the second half of the process (like the Let's Encrypt SSL).
Take a look here: [link]
Go to "CloudFlare SSL options" to get a better understanding of the differences.
Also this for the TL;DR sake of things.
This is ideal -- if the org is decent, it will help you. If it hurts you, the org is not worth working for.
BTW, if you're looking for SRE/ops jobs in SFBA or London or Singapore, or willing to relocate to one of those, please consider [link] -- if a candidate did research (reading blog, pulling configs, looking at open source contributions), we'd consider it a huge positive.
I wouldn't bother unless it's for bragging rights to be the only website in the history of ever to get a perfect score. Even Google.com gets a 53(mobile) and 88(desktop).
But if it's just speed you are after, have a look at CloudFlare. They have a free tier that can do your dns and image serving from edge locations around the world making the site even quicker in countries outside of where your site is hosted. I've actually stopped using the server-side pagespeed module and just use CloudFlare these days because it's less hassle. But I'm lazy :D
Your webpage test results look good. London & New York.
If you want to eke out that final bit of performance from your site, see if you can figure out how to merge those 3 JS requests into 1. I know wordpress can be a bear some times. My guess is it has something to do with the query string on functions.js.
Anyhow, good luck!
Just add SSL to the site you are working on, you could use something like CloudFlare's flexible SSL ([link]) to do this for free. Browsers are right to implement changes like this as it all adds to protecting the end user, which is good in the end.
If that's true, then it demonstrates the need for official clarification. CloudFlare has 35 different data centers, which are scattered all over the world. Which of those is/are Reddit's "local" jurisdiction(s), for the purposes of law?
There are none, because that isn't what happens. When someone was trying to shut down PTP they sent CF several blatantly faked DMCA takedowns, this is what CF sent us:
>CloudFlare received a DMCA copyright infringement complaint regarding:
>Below is the complaint we received:
>We have provided the name of your hosting provider to the reporter. Additionally, we have forwarded this complaint to your hosting provider as well.
Well that's one of the things Cloudflare does, they protect against DDoS. It doesn't look like a captcha though, it looks like this:
Based on the information contained in the link above:
The user checked his IP and is not blacklisted. I'm not either.
User mentioned his IP is coming from Canada, so are all of mine. I tried from a couple different locations.
I know for a fact that I am not triggering application control on a firewall.
It seems possible and likely that the website in question has enabled some geolocation protection for certain regions. Would need more Canadians' and Germans' input to confirm though.
EDIT: For some reason reddit changes the numbered list all to 1. I have no idea how to change that.
Instead of bumping your instance up, install [link] to deal with spikes.
EDIT: His response about CPU use is very valid and should be something to consider when looking at cloudflare or similar services. CPU is going to be different than the static page content load issues that are mitigated by cloudflare type services.
Ha, sorry, idiot editor doesn't know how to mirror things! The site's up right now, and we're trying to figure out how to keep it up. Anyone have an opinion on CloudFlare? I think we might try using that.
Firewall rules. It will really depend on your firewall. At home, I use pfsense. On a regular consumer router, this isn't likely possible.
If your firewall supports this, the best way to do this is to create an alias and then load their IP ranges ([link])
Then in your NAT rules, create the rule in a way that port 443 (and 80 if it's also open) are explicitly open to Cloudflare's IP ranges and nothing else.
If you're fronted by CloudFlare you should create an alias with CloudFlare's IP ranges and change your port forwarding rule to NAT traffic only for those ranges. Then you can be assured any traffic coming in on those ports is valid traffic, already cleared by CloudFlare. All other traffic is discarded.
To take it further, next steps would be looking into authenticated origin pulls and a programmable reverse proxy for all sorts of ACL power.
5-6million page views per month is quite a few, have you looked into using a CDN like CloudFlare to distribute some of the load? That could reduce the hits you're getting on your DO droplet.
