    How does Cloudflare protects from Layer 3 and 4? I never understood that. A layer 4 attack is an attack directly to the server IP in order to full the network bandwith causing a denial of service. If we attack the server IP, Cloudflare is completely bypassed.

    believe they're referring to DDOS mitigation at Cloudflare Edge servers
    so technically they're protecting themselves (Cloudflare) and not charging Cloudflare customers for it heh
