Overall Satisfaction with Cloudflare

Before Cloudflare I had to deal with managing security and performance for my various websites which was both cumbersome and time-consuming as well as technically challenging. Although I had heard of Cloudflare's features and capabilities, I never considered implementing their solutions as I thought they were only focused on the large organisations. Boy, was I wrong. Cloudflare is excellent for small businesses and enterprises alike. They have products and solutions fit for any size business, no matter the budget. They enable a-la-cart type acquisition of the features that you need at the scale that you need. Cloudflare is a true partner in delivering performance and security for my websites and I will continue to add functionality as needed.

Pros

  • Performance
  • Security
  • Access Filtering
  • Content Delivery

Cons

  • Adding more functionality for free user tier
  • More visibility (especially when filtering firewall logs, you can only filter on 24 hours)
  • Better accessibility and performance for website visitors
  • More visibility and control for administrators
I tried self-managing it using cPanel and .htaccess but this was both time-consuming and limited in functionality.
Signing up was as easy as 1-2-3. Simply fill up the registration form, follow the easy-to-use step-by-step instructions and you're up and running. Cloudflare reached out to me and had a call to understand my needs and offer product offerings based on my requirements. They didnt try to hard-sell. It was a simple consultancy call.
Support is easy to use, but based on email responses. Having a live-chat might be faster, especially when you're in a panic.

Cloudflare is extremely suitable for business of all sizes, from small businesses all the way up to large enterprises. They offer the ability to add functionality as needed without needing to scale by "business size". So you not only get what you pay for, but more. Some functionality is still hidden behind "next grade account levels". They should make this optional and allow small businesses to take the features they need without having to tie themselves into a more expensive "next grade" level of account.
