Cloudflare special plans: Lite and Pro Plus
After Cloudflare decided to raise costs by 25%, I was debating between keeping the Pro plan or downgrade my hobby site to Free... Made my mind to downgrade, then there's a special plan popped out called Lite.
Based on the description, it's "everything in free and Enhanced WAF + Enhanced bot mitigation + Super Bot fight mode + Cloudflare Managed Ruleset" (without APO and additional page rules). The difference between Pro and Lite, seems to be the additional page rules + "Lossless image optimization + Automatic mobile optimization + cache analysis + APO plugin for WordPress".
There's a link to https://developers.cloudflare.com/plans/, where a comparison of Free, Lite, Pro, Pro Plus, Business and Enterprise are listed (where on https://www.cloudflare.com/plans/ there's only Free, Pro, Business and Enterprise). Google cache's Nov 14th cache does not show Lite and Pro Plus on the chart webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:https://developers.cloudflare.com/plans/ and Internet Archive's Dec 1st capture showed it https://web.archive.org/web/20221201215705/https://developers.cloudflare.com/plans/. So I think it's safe to assume the two special plans comes when Cloudflare announced they'll increase price for current plans.
Price for Lite seems to be $12/month on my end. Since the special plans only shows up during the process of downgrade, if someone have a Business plan they can try to downgrade to Pro (you don't need to actually downgrade, the special plans should show up on step 2 - after you select which plan you want to downgrade to). My wallet is not rich enough to pay for the pro-rated $200/month subscription lol.
