Stop Using Cloudflare

1. It is a GIANT man in the middle - MITM.
2. Their DDOS protection is not that good.
3. You are contributing to a centralized Internet.

@selea can you recommend an alternative? Preferably something from this list so I might actally have the energy to switch.

@selea For what ever reason I switched to traefik to handle HTTPS stuff and I really don't have the energy to switch to something else. Buuuut seems like at least better than cloudflare drop in replacement option.


The Link you shared is a DNS-service and dont have anything to do with https

@selea No but yes. Letsencryp has dns challenges and at the moment traefik is dealing with those using cloudflares api. I think. I really don't actually know nor do I want to at the moment.

As I understand it in onder for me to get away from cloudflare dns service is exactly what I need in this situation.


@JonossaSeuraava I just run my own DNS server (PowerDNS) with which Traefik works just fine.
