Overall Satisfaction with Cloudflare

I use Cloudflare to assist in mitigating a number of attacks my web server came under. In that respect, Cloudflare has made my life simpler. I also utilize Cloudflare's domain name registrar offerings which offer domain names at cost, which is hard to beat. Not sure what I would do without them at this point.

Pros

  • Fending off server attacks
  • Makes managing DNS records simple
  • Domain registrar services are simple and a great value

Cons

  • The renewal date on domain name registrations needs to be specific about the day in which it will automatically renew a domain and ding your bank account. I've had it put me in the negative when not watching the bank account too closely. As a result, I've had to just disable the auto renew feature on upcoming domains to avoid any surprises.
  • Cloudflare has allowed me to sleep at night knowing my server is protected to some degree.
I've not really used anything like Cloudflare before utilizing Cloudflare.
It went fairly quickly, faster today I imagine, as it's been years since I had to get set up.
Sometimes support is not so easy to reach, and the free support tear seems a bit limited at times. Better than nothing.

Do you think Cloudflare delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Cloudflare's feature set?

Yes

Did Cloudflare live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Cloudflare go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cloudflare again?

Yes

For a simple WordPress site, depending on where and how it is hosted, Cloudflare might be a bit overkill. You can say the same for someone who only has a domain or two they are looking to park, again, Cloudflare would be overkill in that area as well.
