How has it helped my organization?

As mentioned, it helps me manage DNS records for more than 100 domains with ease. It helps in web page optimization & helps keep the website secure. If it was not for CloudFlare, I would have to hire a dedicated resource to manage all... more»

What is most valuable?

These are some of the valuable features: * Free 15 year SSL certificates (I used to need to pay for these). * Spam protection to help prevent spam and unnecessary bot traffic. * Edge caching on a CDN. This is nice for WordPress sites. I can... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Once a domain's name servers have been pointed to CloudFlare, you never have to worry about DNS propagation. This would be the case, for example, if you wanted to point a domain to a different EC2/digital ocean instance.

What needs improvement?

In that sense, it's marketing that could use some improvement. It is hard to call your own product a "necessity", but I truly believe that it, or something like it, is a necessity. Without it, you are risking higher costs, more spam, more... more»

What is most valuable?

The API gives us the ability to remote control our DNS settings. With many platforms, such as PF-Sense integrating with CloudFlare, it’s an invaluable tool for things such as Dynamic DNS, Let’s Encrypt DNS-01 Challenge, or even as a rapid... more»

How has it helped my organization?

CloudFlare made it easier for us to manage our client’s DNS. With their outstanding UI, we have been able to reduce human errors and get a better overview of our DNS and security.

What needs improvement?

* We need templates and profiles badly for the whole setup and multi-user support with rights management. * They need to fix their extensions and integrations faster. * They need to add more sub-level API keys.

What is most valuable?

I have used the cache feature of CloudFlare CDN. CloudFlare is very easy to set up for my site domain. It is very easy to maintain. CloudFlare flushes the cache immediately, which is not supported by some of the other CDN networks such as... more»

How has it helped my organization?

No comments, because I am using it only for creating a cache flushing tool that will work on Adobe Experience Manger (AEM).

What needs improvement?

There are some features missing or might not be visible to me as I am using its free website plan. These features are: * CloudFlare doesn't provide the cache flush history. I.e., I am not able to find out the URL information of those I have... more»

What is most valuable?

Convenient Ease of deployment

How has it helped my organization?

Provides peace of mind. We do not have to do things over and over, or double check their work, or worry about what could have happened due to a potential DDOS attack, if we didn't have protection.

What needs improvement?

I think the APIs are a little bit hard for us to work with. The APIs could be more open so that we could integrate better with our SolarWinds or our monitoring solution. Also, the reporting can definitely be improved to offer a lot more... more»

Cloudflare Questions

What is Cloudflare?

Cloudflare is a content distribution network (CDN) that protects, optimizes and speeds up your website. When you sign up, your website automatically joins the Cloudflare community of websites and all your web traffic is diverted through the intelligent Cloudflare global network. The result is a better performing, always available website that is protected against all attacks.

Setting up Cloudflare for your website takes less than five minutes, and does not require any new hardware, software, or coding changes. The service is designed to be scalable in that the more webmasters that join the Cloudflare community, the faster and more efficient the system will be, and the more protected the web will become.

Cloudflare customers

Customer base of over 1,500,000 websites, including Imgur, People's Choice, Luxury Link, The Franklin Mint, Teal Networks, Zopim, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The Bay Lights, and FounderLY.
