Overview

There is no bandwidth limit for a website which you wish to start using CloudFlare with, and the free account is accessible for everyone.

You can set it up using its dedicated setup app in cPanel, if available, or by changing the DNS name servers of the domain at the Domain Central of the host. Once activated, it offers much-needed analytic reports on the daily basis and also cut off the users who are trying to visit the website with any malicious attempt.

It works like a proxy that gets between end-user and the actual server. This is how an end-user is never having access to the hosting server anyhow.

Pros

The very first one in the pros is that the CloudFlare can be used for free. It doesn’t put any bandwidth limit, meaning you can host a website with unlimited traffic.

It blocks malicious users trying to access your website and thus, keep your website secure. Also, those users don’t have direct access to the server of your website, because CloudFlare’s server is acting as a proxy in between. Trust me, the security is really good and can help your website to be saved from many malicious attempts.

Cons

The speed offered by CloudFlare isn’t that good, compared to that of MaxCDN. Also, the security feature offered is also having a downside. It sometimes blocks a genuine user, email newsletter and other traffic sources.

Thus, it can play a major role in hurting the user experience for a good number of user base. Still, chances of this happening is low, but we can’t ignore its presence.
