cloudflare servers

Recommended Posts

hi all i recently read on sls info page that they suffered a ddos attack, well i am using cloudflares dns servers on my own pc which in effect are very good, there servers are all encrypted, i am running win 7, have found its speeded up my Internet browsers , and the cloudflare dns servers absorb all the junk which and also stops ddos attacks so i read, its easy to change dns in your windows settings very simple, but to be honest, sl still runs the same, but for browsing the web its great its uped my speed to what it should be not like my normal ip providers own dns servers and cloud flare also has a privacy policy what deletes any data within 24 hours , they have had audits to prove it there is more info on youtube about it, its a new service and free to use, so the question is why cant sl do something along those lines, maby it could be a cure for lag, would like to see what some of you think about this,  cheers all

DDOS protection on a whole server infrastructure != a VPN or third party DNS setting on a private client.

1. Cloudflare is not a new service, it has been around since 2009

2. If you want to learn about how the SL Servers work and how they are connected to,  try some of these links

There is always some kind of DDoS attack going on aimed at SL. 99.9% of the time, it's managed and ineffective and no one notices.

Yeah it wont cure lag...  Lag is typically your own connection and your own hardware. LL runs equipment that is less than 2 years old, they have their own fiber ring and use Level3 as their backhaul,  Server side lag people still complain about, but actually server side lag has not really been a thing in years.  it's people still trying to do SL on laptops/netbooks/10 year old pc hardware that complain about lag.    if you build out a system (pc) that can run sl and than setup sl to run without issue (easy) then there is no lag,  I do not experience it, even in crowded sims, I can still get 40fps easily.   low draw, NO shadows (why is this even a thing in sl, as unoptimized as textures and other content is, it just adds to lag people get...)
