Cloudflare has announced that customers on its free plan can now get real-time HTTP DDoS attacks alerts. This feature was initially meant for customers using Cloudflare paid plans.
DDoS attack alerts on Cloudflare free plan
To configure real-time DDoS attack alerts, log in to your Cloudflare dashboard, then go to Notifications>Add>HTTP DDoS Attack Alerter.
DDoS attacks are requests sent to your web server in large numbers causing service disruption. Cloudflare technology is able to prevent DDoS attacks by differentiating between user requests and attack requests.
If attack requests are detected, Cloudflare blocks and stops them from hitting your server. You will also receive alerts if your website experiences DDoS attacks.
Cloudflare also provides the option to set HTTP DDoS Managed Ruleset for common DDoS attacks
