Thumbs up Do you have any experiance with CloudFlare?

I use Cloudflare free service since last month. It has some useful features like fast site performance, security protection, powerful stats about visitors.

Here is a screenshot of its stats. (searched from Google images)



Try with their free service. I think that you will get some advantages from their service.

Do you have any experiance with CloudFlare? feel free to share your thoughts.

They require change to DNS settings. This is not good. There is host downtime. I do not need another service downtime.

I have been using them on my blogs since they was in Beta mode. Using Cloudflare is extra protection (security wise) for your blog and helps save bandwidth if you are on share web hosting. Plus the apps that you can use are very cool. I only use the free version as well.

I had zero downtime when I changed my DNS.

If your server ever goes offline, CloudFlare will serve a limited copy of your cached website to keep it online for your visitors. CloudFlare builds the Always Online version of your website, so your most popular pages are represented.

That member was talking about first switching your DNS over to cloudflare when you set it up.. I know about the cache copy already. Been a member for a long time.

I personally love couldfare had some problems with my images showing on the website but then realized that was caused by WP Total cache.

The best thing is that it is free and they don't keep pushing upsells on you!

They are great, we have a ton of customers use them. The only trick is if your IP changes with your host your CloudFare points to nowhere!

Definitely something that needs to worked on.

Haven't had any issues with Cloudflare although I think one of my sites loads a little slower since switching to them. They're one of the few free services out there.

CloudFlare is a free alternative to MaxCDN which costs $9 a month. I've been using CloudFlare for a few months now and so far, so good.

Cloudflare is a nice addition to your website. More and more people start using them everyday.
We are using the the Cloudflare Pro plan and so far we do not regret it. We have 0 downtime in over a year of use on our website.

Actually, I have some experience with Cloudflare. I have configure that last months but my heavy blog was not running well. Thus, I decided to change to Amazon Cloudfront and it is working well for me.
