Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It has improved our organization by providing quick access to resources.
It has helped improve load speed on the site.
Purge pages: It is a fast solution for updating my content from all datacenters.
I selected CDN77 because it has servers where our different target markets are (some are in Asia).
It is extremely easy to set up and integrate with WordPress and purge files as needed through the control panel.
The control panel is nicely laid out and I do not have to hunt for functionality.
The technical support is good.
The most valuable feature of Cloudflare is that it has a free version. They give us the free version with the anti-DDoS features and also the load balancing solution.
Cloudflare allows us to self-host services such as Rocket.Chat and Node-RED, in high-availability mode, thanks to round robin DNS which allows us to share one hostname between our two locations.
When using services like Heroku, Cloudflare is very useful for CNAME flattening. I also use it for their end-to-end SSL with TLS authentication on nginx for securing servers.
Centralized, full-featured DNS.
The simplicity of the overall dashboard makes it a great product for a user like me who has less understanding of the internet than a developer or other more technical people. It gives me peace of mind. I also love the easy customization of the Page Rules.
A year ago, I had to deal with SEO factors involving duplication of content.
If you are a low-use user and not used the minimum credit, it will be lost at end of year unless you upgrade, then you are left with more bandwidth than you can ever use.
The product support needs to be accessible from more places, a wider area of coverage.
If they improve on the placement of their data centers, it would be better. I'm living in a remote area. I would like to connect to them without any kind of lag.
They lack a good way to manage DNS as a company, since everything is relegated to single account logins until you get to the higher levels. They have come out with a paid feature to remedy this, but I have not had a chance to fully review it yet to know if it fixes the access problem.
One area of improvement is in the Access Rules. Hypothetically, if we wanted to block or challenge traffic outside of the United States, the only way to currently do that (as far as I know) is to enter every single country outside of the United States. That could be a labor intensive job. A solution could be to enable users to create a rule where traffic is only allowed within a certain country.
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.
The reporting can definitely be improved to offer a lot more explanation on something that may have happened or has actually happened.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Regarding the pricing, it is expensive. It may not suit others. I suggest a lower recharge level and also to remove the credit expiry time.
For low-use users, it can be more expensive than it seems. It would be a disadvantage for a lot of hobby users.
I would suggest low usage cases that there are other options available, such as WordPress's own CDN.
There are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fees.
I think the pricing is competitive. I think as far as licensing is concerned it's pretty straightforward because it's based on domain. It's just that sometimes domains could be tricky with some customers.
