Overall Satisfaction with Cloudflare

Cloudflare is default now in our business. Every client gets onboarded into Cloudflare, either with their account or in ours. It solves all our DNS problems, the DNS propagation is super quick, and we also get to protect our sites and speed them up at the same time. Cloudflare is awesome.
  • DNS management.
  • Anti DDoS.
  • Fast caching and optimization.
  • More pricing plans.
  • More page rules in the free tier.
  • Speed in certain countries with less PoPs.
  • Reduced our DNS propagation time.
  • Improved our security in general.
  • Helped us mitigate problems related to hacked sites because we can block access to websites in a faster way.
Cloudflare offers a FREE plan, that just works. And if we need to scale the project, then we can upgrade to a paid plan with no hassle. Most of our caching plug-ins and servers integrate with Cloudflare in a simple way, and most competitors don't. It's crucial for us to move fast and have a reliable CDN partner like Cloudflare.
The results are immediate. The websites load faster in minutes. They also now implemented a new onboarding process that makes it super clear to set up a new site and have it running in less than 10 minutes. The interface improved in the last years, and now we can even delegate the domain setup to the client because it's really easy to use.
The paid support is really good. The free community support in the forums is good as well. We had no problems whatsoever keeping in touch with the support, but the times we did need it, it was solved in a couple of iterations. Definitely recommended.

Are you happy with Cloudflare's feature set?

Did implementation of Cloudflare go as expected?


Would you buy Cloudflare again?


Cloudflare is the best tool to speed up and harden security in websites of all sizes. I recommend Cloudflare to all my colleagues because it is now the norm in our business to use it. It saves us so much time because Cloudflare has the fastest DNS propagation we experienced, so we can get to work sooner. It may not be the best solution for enterprise sites, because it can get expensive and there are cheaper alternatives.

Evaluating Cloudflare and Competitors

Yes - It replaced all our self-hosted DNS managers.

It never goes offline, and having it separated from our server gives us another layer of security
