Using CloudFlare workers to clean up the URLs is neat but it seems like it would be really easy to reach the limits of the free tier.


You get 100,000 request per month and up to 1,000 requests in a 10 minute timeframe. So if you have a page with 10 images on it and you get 100 people visiting that page within a 10 minute timeframe, you will use up all of your free tier and all new visitors will get a 1015 error.

For paid plans you must pay at least $5 and get 10 million requests included and additional requests are 50 cents per million.

You get 100,000 requests per day, not per month. The burst limits are definitely a concern for heavy traffic, but for just $5 you can remove the burst limits entirely, as you mention.
