I rely on cloudflare to provide application firewall, rate throttling, filtering by country, Brotli compression and HTTP/2 among several other features. Here is a listing of my DNS entries for ekvastra.in. I also manage ekvastra.org and kandhamal.org for which I have implemented DNSSEC as well.

ftp subdomain does not exist on my webserver. It is not supposed to work over https. I update dns record to bypass my proxy only before usage. I use Zoho mail as my primary mail.

The A records will resolve to the address of my firewall, the actual server address is protected.
