Cloudflare Rules

Available on all plans

Cloudflare Rules allows you to make adjustments to requests and responses, configure Cloudflare settings, and trigger specific actions for matching requests.

Rules features require that you proxy the DNS records of your domain (or subdomain) through Cloudflare.

​​ Features

​​ Configuration Rules

Customize Cloudflare configuration settings for matching incoming requests.

Customize the compression applied to responses from Cloudflare’s global network to your website visitors, based on the file extension and content type.
