Announcing HTTP Rate Limiting 2.0

Here are the benefits of Rate Limiting 2.0:

  1. Revised user interface: A more intuitive user experience, making it easier for you to use.
  2. Faster propagation: Configuration changes take effect in less than 60 seconds, helping you respond to attacks even faster.
  3. New penalty box: This feature protects you against individual clients violating rate limiting rules by placing clients in a penalty box for 10 seconds, 60 seconds, or 5 minutes, freeing your resources to handle the needs of legitimate traffic.
  4. Improved targeting: New filtering fields: Hostname and path of URL — with both supporting wildcard or regex. You can now configure different rates for different pages, giving you more control.
  5. Request method handling: Rate limiting is now based on HTTP request methods (e.g., GET, HEAD, DELETE, POST, OPTIONS, PUT), further refining control. For example: You can now easily combine request protocol with other limiting methods to protect API endpoints.
  6. Flexible intervals: We’ve added additional rate limiting sampling windows of 1, 5, 10, 30, 60, 120, 300 seconds. Giving you more flexibility and control to reduce false positives.
