Some people don’t want to use Cloudflare or don’t want to rely on third party service such as Cloudflare.November 28, 2022 at 7:46 pm #3047SusanGuest
Yes and no.
SlickStack loves Cloudflare for it’s incredibly robust DNS system, and it’s a very user friendly platform to manage your DNS records.
Some of the default “uncapped” settings in SlickStack esp. Linux kernel assume you have a CDN or WAF of sorts but it’s not actually required to have it.November 28, 2022 at 7:48 pm #3048RalphGuest
It’s not inherently a security or performance risk to use SlickStack without Cloudflare, it’s more just simply “why don’t you want to use Cloudflare” when it’s free and has so many benefits. A lot of people are still clinging to outdated opinions of Cloudflare from several years ago that it slows down your site or things like that but it’s just not true… esp. if you’re only using CF for DNS purposes and have their proxy disabled.November 28, 2022 at 7:50 pm #3049MeganGuest

Cloudflare is not “required” but strongly recommended at least for DNS.
Look at DNSPerf to see why you should use CloudflareDecember 15, 2022 at 9:05 am #3431LindaGuest
A lot of my clients in Europe hate Cloudflare.December 15, 2022 at 9:05 am #3432SamuelGuestDecember 17, 2022 at 10:59 am #3446BryanGuest
A lot of people don’t realize you can use Cloudflare for DNS only and still keep your other CDN like Fastly or Stackpath or whatever.January 24, 2023 at 10:12 am #3867FrancesGuest

A lot of my clients in Europe hate Cloudflare.
Germans complain about nearly everything.January 24, 2023 at 10:53 am #3868WillieGuest
Far-left Euro activists are okay with using some shitty Mastodon server being hosted in some university student’s dorm room, but claim Cloudflare is some horrible corporate honeypot that cannot be trusted because _reasons_
They just hate Cloudflare because Germany has become the defacto headquarters in Europe for Antifa and trans/pedo activists and Cloudflare briefly refused to take down the Kiwi Farms website (among others) as they believe in freedom of speech
Now that Cloudflare is bending the knee to E.U. and assisting “Russian journalists” I’m sure the hatred of Cloudflare will disappear overnight in Brussels and BerlinJanuary 24, 2023 at 10:56 am #3869JenniferGuest
