A site I manage in my spare time with a couple thousand normal users was getting attacked by a Chinese botnet. All the requests were coming from only two subnets. Easy to block. Feels like this was only the vanguard. Prelude to the real attack. I'm thinking about moving the site to its own server, so it won't affect my other sites. There at least if it gets kneeled, it'll only be that site.

    could using cloudflare help?

    Yeah, probably. Though I'm hesitant to spend money unless I really need to. But I might.

    @bahua CloudFlare is free, even the Pro version is only $20/month, so likely cheaper than putting it on another server

    Yeah, but I HAVE another server.

    @bahua sure, but if we're talking serious load your host may get grumpy ;-) free cloud flare can't hurt

    Sure, and like I said, I may have to.
