Overall Satisfaction with Cloudflare

We've been using Cloudflare as our primary choice to improve our website's speed, accessibility, and reliability. Since it makes changing DNS records much faster and easier, so you don't need to mess with nameservers anymore and wait for it to propagate around the world. Almost all of our projects are using Cloudflare!
  • Website migration between different hosting services
  • Static assets caching
  • Customer support for free-tier users
  • We had issues with DNS configuration and couldn't find how to solve them so that documentation can be improved.
  • We're able to publish websites much faster without spending more for that.
  • By joining all of our projects inside this service, it's easier to maintain and organize them.
  • It doesn't work precisely as Cloudflare (which is focused on that part between user requests and data traffic). Still, we've been using DreamHost as a nameserver for a few websites, and it works but doesn't offer the same capabilities in that regard. It's just a hosting provider.
  • So I can't compare Cloudflare with any other service that our company is using, we've been delighted with their service so far.
  • We've been using a free plan, so we know that we aren't a priority on their list, but we had a severe issue in just one project, and they weren't able to help us with that.
  • We had to remove that website from Cloudflare and use another service since they couldn't help us, and they took a long time to respond to our inquiries.

  • Cloudflare is a fantastic tool that makes our websites faster by optimizing traffic and caching files. Also, it adds a layer of security (even on the free plan), which blocks incoming threats.
  • The best part is the ability to use this service as a nameserver since we don't have to rely anymore on different hosting services.
