Cloudflare: What are the benefits?

So what exactly is Cloudflare, one may ask..

From their website:

CloudFlare is a free global CDN, DNS, DDoS protection & web security provider that can speed up and protect any site online.


Sometimes when websites are offline, mostly due to the server being down, you'll see a notification message that was appended by Cloudflare. A lot of websites use Cloudflare as a means to make their website faster by utilizing cache but there are other features of Cloudflare.

Cloudflare features:
  • CDN (Content Delivery Network) - Distribute your content around the world so it’s closer to your visitors (speeding up your site).
  • Optimization - Web pages with ad servers and third party widgets load snappy on both mobile and computers.
  • Security - Protect your website from online threats with our enterprise-grade Website Application Firewall (WAF).
  • DDoS Protection - Ensure your website is protected against DDoS attacks using our advanced service.
  • DNS - CloudFlare operates one of the fastest DNS services. It is global, powerful, and always secure.
  • Apps - CloudFlare apps makes installing web apps on your site fast, safe and one-click simple.

Are you using Cloudflare on your website? What is your experience? Have you noticed a significant difference?

Being an ex. Cloudflare eployee all I can say is the free package is way too good for what it is, from a layer 7 attack it filters out 98% of the attacks power, buy layer 4 it doesn't do anything against. The paid package being veryvery cheap for what you get is the most amazing protection in the world, filters out 98% of both l7 and l4 attacks if the attacker doesn't use amp or have a way to bypass it. The cache load time will improve alot after the first visit and just a tad bit the first. If you have any other question feel free to ask Cloudflare: What are the benefits?

Oh, that's very interesting. I noticed that your services on the marketplace are primarily SEO services, however since you were an ex-cloudflare employee why aren't you selling services based upon your expertise in that field? Also, what kind of duty did you have while working with Cloudflare?

Busy enough with that, I do offer services like that but it's more for companies, patching exploits on their site etc, and I was a developer and sometimes support. I was thinking about starting to sell servers/rdp's/vps's but I don't know. Cloudflare: What are the benefits? feel free to ask more, I love to answer questions! Cloudflare: What are the benefits?

I’ve been using Cloudflare for a long time and I can say it’s the best cdn service that I’ve tried before. I haven’t tried their paid packages yet, but if they offer a cool service for free , then the paid version is even more better and more advanced. Also, Cloudflare features are nice , and can’t be more perfect I think.
