Pros: made my site go faster, save bandwidth and that does not saturate the hosting. It was easy to configure because of the integration to cpanel.

Cons: There is not much to say against it. I think the free version is somewhat limited but it is logical. Sorry but nothing bad to say.

Overall: Save money buying expensive servers.

Most trustworthy security service.

Pros: At first I simply used it for managing my DNS because of its clean interface and also for CDN, but later I started to use all the different performance and security features that they provide. I really like the web optimizing and the free shared SSL.

Cons: As they start to offer more and more services, there are a lot of configurations I have to update for every domain I have. It would be nice if there's a copy settings feature.

Overall: Easy management of DNS, performance, security, and many other things. Saved me a lot of time.

Pros: I used CloudFlare on a website for one of my clients. She has a WooCommerce shop built in Wordpress. Her site was dragging, and CloudFlare saved the day. Her website is now 200% faster, and it was easy to set up.

Overall: Faster website!!!

Pros: I love how Cloudflare helps us solve many DNS issues. I love not having to change the DNS servers of our domains when I move them to a different hosting provider. I love the automatic SSL proxying.

Cons: I wish Cloudflare would allow us to proxy wildcard addresses without having to go on the Enterprise plan.

Pros: DNS redirection (A, CNAME, MX, etc.) in seconds, . Good security features includes ddos, http/2+spdy, free SNI SSL certificates, DNSSEC, hsts, latest technology like tls 1.3, ipv6. Also it has good caching features. You can minify files, purge only few files or everything

Cons: It needs nameservers redirected to Cloudflare to work. Also someone hacked me via Cloudflare API. this was too bad.

Overall: DNS management and security

A must have for all webmasters!

Comments: Cloudflare is a no brainer and can be a game changer. It's DNS is one of the most robust in the industry and its interface is incredibly easy to use. It's caching functionality is unlike anything out there and it can serve a cached version of your website if your live host temporarily goes down.

Pros: Ease of use, features provided.

Cons: Nothing I can think of at the time of this writing.

Overall: After having used Cloudflare for over a year, I'm happy to know that they are continuing to grow. I feel that their role as a CDN has improved both the speed with which my website loads to viewers as well as security they provide for the backend of my site. Within the past year, I was witness to live DDoS attacks on my site thru 3rd party security software. When this took place, I was able to change one setting ("Under Attack") on Cloudflare which effectively locked down my website to the attackers and yet still kept it free on the web for others to use. Once the attack was over, I just changed the setting back to normal and all was good. One more thing to add, because of the way in which a CDN delivers, it was very convenient to be able to "clear the cache" at Cloudflare after making changes to my site. More importantly, you have the option of clearing just the cache of the specific page you were working on.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're a newbie website developer, this is definitely a piece of software you can't afford to NOT have!

Pros: Ease of use, requiring minimum computer knowledge. Great knowledge database. Great security features. Works great for both emailing and websites.

Cons: TEchnical support need to improve their response time and provide more personalized answers.

Overall: I have been a user of Cloudflare for a little less than a year and it has been a good experience. The platform is reliable and easy to use, although requires to have certain computing abilities to extract the best of it.

The free version works very well and is useful for startups and independent entrepreneurs. Ever since I started to use it I only had one outage, provoked by another application that affected its functionality.

The issue could be easily solved, but one thing that needs improvement is their technical support; they rely so much on their established knowledge database, but if a user doesn't find an answer in such database, the live tech support is very slow and takes days and even weeks to get a response from them.

Besides the tech support problem (whish I actually see it as an improvement opportunity), Cloudflare works perfectly, with no downtime so far.

The security features are not free, but it's worth paying for them.

I recommend Cloudflare to startups and small businesses as well.

Comments: Analytics, caching, DDoS protection and DNS management. You couldn't ask for more for a free tool! It optimizes our speed and security. The only thing that would be nice to have is a better targeted cache clearing system (they offer something better on the paid plan).

Comments: It's easy and quick to use but some features are missing. API took a revamp which was a bit of pain but nowadays is fine. Good service but can slow your site down if you use something like AWS.

Pros: Quick and easy for most basic tasks, especially initial setup. Also SSL-ness! :D Pricing is free so that is a win right there.

Cons: No ESI and other features which exist on competitors sites.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you don't need advance things such as ESI then this is a nobrainer.
