Cloudflare Error 1015 is a rate-limiting error and it usually displayed as “You are being rate limited”. This means that you have sent too many requests to the server and your IP address has been temporarily limited to the site. The limitation is usually caused by exceeding the rate limit set by the site owner or Cloudflare itself.

Error 1015

How to solve this trouble?

It's time to try the 4 methods in this article!

What Causes Cloudflare Error 1015?

The main cause of Error 1015 is exceeding the rate limit set for a specific IP address. This can happen in a number of situations:

  1. High Traffic: Users or automated scripts making a large number of requests to the site in a short period of time may trigger the rate limit. This is often seen during web scraping or running automated bots.
  2. DDoS Protection: To protect against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, Cloudflare uses rate limiting as a defense mechanism. IP addresses may be temporarily blocked if they make requests at a rate similar to a DDoS attack.
  3. Application Misconfiguration: Sometimes legitimate applications can be misconfigured and inadvertently make too many requests. For example, a poorly designed API client may request data repeatedly in a loop.
  4. Shared IP Addresses: Users behind a shared IP address, such as those on a corporate network or using a VPN, may collectively exceed the rate limit, even if individual usage is within acceptable limits.

Here are 4 methods you can use to fix this error:

  • Method 2: Get an advanced proxy
  • Method 3: Create different browser fingerprints for access through Nstbrowser.
  • Method 4: Dynamic proxy via Nstbrowser proxy group

Method 1: Limit the Number of Requests

As we said before, a large number of requests to a website in a short period of time is likely to trigger rate limiting. So to avoid Cloudflare Error 1015, make sure that the frequency of requests sent from the client is within the allowed range:

  • When writing scripts or programs to access website APIs, consider increasing the interval between initiating requests.
  • When using a particular API, check its documentation for rate limits and make sure your requests are within the limits.

If you think your request frequency is normal, try contacting the site administrator or support team to explain the situation and request that the rate limit be lifted.

Method 2: Get an Advanced Proxy

Proxy servers can spread the load of requests and prevent a single IP address from sending too many requests. IP rotation allows the site to see you as a different user and ultimately avoids Cloudflare Error 1015.
