Does SlickStack pretty much require Cloudflare to be used?

    Some people don’t want to use Cloudflare or don’t want to rely on third party service such as Cloudflare.

    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.

    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 A lot of people are still clinging to outdated opinions of Cloudflare from several years ago that it slows down your site or things like that but it’s just not true… esp.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.

    There’s very few cases where Cloudflare shouldn’t be considered

    Cloudflare is not “required” but strongly recommended at least for DNS.

    Look at DNSPerf to see why you should use Cloudflare

    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.

    This.

    A lot of my clients in Europe hate Cloudflare.

    Germans complain about nearly everything.

    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 Berlin
