I’m investigating possible CDN solutions for one of our websites.
Currently, we use Cloudflare for the entire site. On our current Cloudflare plan, we’re not able to selectively purge assets. Since 85% of the images on the site are never updated (about 3000 small product images), this is proving inefficient.
So we’ve looked at storage buckets such as (Digital Ocean) DO spaces to store images that won’t ever be updated. With DO spaces, their CDN doesn’t offer http2 or 3, so the speed and efficiency for pages with more than 10 images would be compromised. Cloudflare DNS offers HTTP 2/3 and a better SSL system, so we looked into using that to connect to the DO space. Tested and all works fine.
Is it OK to use Cloudflare for a domain that effectively only stores images - albeit for another website that is also on Cloudflare?
Section 2.8 of the Cloudflare AUP seems unclear Self-Serve Subscription Agreement | Cloudflare UK.
We do have paid workers set up for edge caching, which seems to satisfy the “supplemental terms” Supplemental Terms | Cloudflare UK
I’d appreciate some feedback before we decide whether or not to go live with this.
