Pretty much all board's that have any ddos protection use cloudflare as its free and or cheap. We use an actual ddos protected dedicated server. Anyways im debating using both, a premium package of cloudflare and the ddos protected server. Kind of like a name brand condom with a cheap chinese import double bagged. Wouldnt count on the cheap one alone but together they are better and stronger. Debating the security implications if the gains outweigh the possible losses..
