@lenovouser I've seen that. And immediately got scared off by the fact that it's no ddos protection. CloudFlare might have its problems like no WebSocket support on lower plans. But comparing these 2 then Cloudflare is easly the industry standard. And for good reason.
Awesome thanks @julian that has seemed to fix the issue. I thought it may have been a problem with my host and the way they have a script for setting up NodeBB with just one click and entering a few bits of info. Been working with them for the past couple of days on this.
