Before and After CloudFlare


I moved one of our sites DNS to CloudFlare in the middle of September 2014, the spam comments dropped from around 630,000 per month to just over 10,000. The drop is mainly down to the way that CloudFlare blocks known spammers at the DNS level so that they don’t reach the site.

I primarily moved to CloudFlare because of the number of automated attacks the site was constantly under however the drop in spam has been a welcome benefit.
