Pinned Review

Nicholis du Toit,
CloudFlare is a great CDN, only problem is that the SSL that comes with the free plan uses SNI.

Customer No Service

I tried to cancel my membership bc I no longer have the website and due to a glitch on their website, I was charged again instead of my subscription getting canceled. They have a red ribbon with a box next to it that looks like it...Read More should have text and you have to click it in order to proceed with canceling. But when you try to proceed, you are charged! This happened twice! I tried to reach them twice via “submit a request” and no one ever gets back to me. I’ve had no choice but to pursue action via PayPal.Less

Literally the worst customer service I've experienced in 30 years.

The entire support department seems to be run using cut and paste from other documents. Customer support agents don't seem to have any agency whatsoever, to the point where I wonder if the whole thing is run by bots.

Best Free DDOS protection service in the world

I have 11 websites using their protection and most are on the free plan. Cloud flare is the best to protect against ddos attacks if you know how to add custom rules yourself, you can rate limit and add page rules so spammers canno...Read Moret ddos your website plus the bot fight mode tool they have is awesome!. Many people say they had bad support/late but you guys need to understand that they protect millions of websites for FREE and they take longer to reply for those reasons. The times I sent them a message they replied within 24 hours and they were helpful and professional at all times. I always recommend people cloud flare because its free to use and even the free plan will protect and stop DDOS attacks no matter how big they are.Less

Don't do business with Cloudflare

The CDN works decently but in doing business with this company you directly support their refusal to remove scammers, phishing websites and constant spammers from their network which enables these people to hide their website host...Read Mores, location and allows them to operate without much of a chance of shutting their operations down. Cloudflare states that 'we can't remove content from the internet' - however CF COULD CUT OFF THESE SITES from using their services which then allows us to find, locate and shut them down. You are basically aiding criminal activity when you do business or use CF for any reason.Less

Cloudflare is GARBAGE

Cloudflare is the #1 protection service for spammers, scammers and phishing. Cloudflare refuses to take action on spammers abusing it's services.

Expert Overview

Global Content Delivery Network

Cloudflare is one of the best-known content delivery networks in the world. As of this writing, they operate 102 data centers in locations around the world, and they are regularly adding to that number. They can handle 10Tbps in bandwidth for their customers, and do an excellent job at innovating and helping clients with a wide range of different requirements. It is important to note that this is not a traditional web-hosting service that is being offered from CloudFlare. Their service is to deliver content to websites that have special requirements.

For example, sites that have heavy traffic or very large files (music, movies, ect) can have the content stored and delivered from CloudFlare rather than their own web hosting server. This can cut down on the system requirements needed, while also increasing the speed and other benefits. This type of service requires very high end hardware and bandwidth, and CloudFlare is one of the best in the world at providing this service.

Uptime & Reliability

Reliability is Their Main Selling Point

The main benefit of a content delivery network is that you will have reliable, fast loading of your sites, files, and other content. Thanks to the many different data centers and extremely high quality connections, uptime will never be an issue. Most customers who use this service will never experience any type of outage at all. In addition, their DDoS and security features can do a lot to help prevent other types of outages caused by digital attackers.


Features Focused on Quality

When looking through the feature list from this company it is very easy to see that they don’t have the same type of options as other companies. Instead, their features are focused on serving up content, adding security, protecting from attacks, and more. Each of the features that they do offer are very high quality and will meet the needs of even the most demanding of customers.

The main service is the content delivery network, which allows customers to serve up almost limitless amounts of data to visitors without any trouble. They also provide web optimization services to speed things up. A service that is becoming more and more important to all sorts of customers is their Anti-DDoS efforts. When a site is being hit with a DDoS attack it becomes unusable. By routing traffic through CloudFlare they are able to scrub the bad traffic out so the site remains up and working the entire time. This is especially important for corporate clients that are often attacked in this manner.


Excellent Tech Support

They are easy to reach through their website or back end, or via phone if necessary. In most cases, they respond to issues like DDoS attacks automatically so you don’t even have to do a thing.  If you ever need them, they will respond quickly and provide you with the answers to solve your issues. In addition, they do have a good section of documentation and resources that can help you learn more about their services.


Great Pricing Options

Many people are surprised at just how affordable the services are from this company. To start with, they have a free package that provides many of their great services for personal websites and blogs. For professional websites and small businesses, they have an option for $20 per month per domain that needs basic security, performance improvements, and other benefits. For $200 per month per domain businesses that run eCommerce sites or those who need more advanced security and performance can get their services. Large corporations can also have a customized quote on the price by contacting them.
