I wish to ask if I have use Cloudflare CDN correctly to improve my website thaigood4u .com server response time. Since I start using Cloudflare CDN, somehow the website speed is only a bit slower than before… I even already purchase the Argo as well, and the speed isn’t changing.
Before I start using Cloudflare the server response time is about 2.8s but now its above 3.5
(I can’t post the screenshot, since I’m new user I only can post one media… I use the “Inspect” web at the monitor,to see my thaigood4u server response time)
I even use keyCDN test, and the test result is still the same. They all are this difference; this just proves that I haven’t use Cloudflare CDN correctly.
Have you added your domain to Cloudflare, because I don’t recognise the screenshot. If you look at the DNS settings in your Cloudflare account, you’ll see the orange proxy server logo. I’ve taken a screenshot of my account, so you can see what to look for.
Let me know when you’ve done that.
This is the second time I post this that my CDN isn’t speeding up the server. I use cloudflare to optimize the server response time by Reduce the server distance from my origin server. However, its been 2 month I use cloudflare but I think its not using well.
The fact is I’m located at Indonesia the server response time only takes about 1.07 second:
I’ve noticed a couple of areas where improvements could enhance your website’s performance:
It appears that you’re using Namecheap web hosting. While brand names aren’t always critical, shared web hosting can sometimes be slow. For a faster experience, I recommend considering a Cloud VPS provider like UpCloud, VULTR High Frequency, or DigitalOcean, choosing a server location that aligns with your target audience.
Your website currently doesn’t seem to utilize Cloudflare’s HTML caching, which can impact Time to First Byte (TTFB) and overall speed. To address this, I suggest exploring Cloudflare’s Automatic Platform Optimization (APO) with the Cloudflare Plugin, as it may significantly improve your site’s performance.
Hello, thank you for your information… but now it pops another question. How come my sites doesn’t utilize the Cloudflare caching…? Does this mean my sites isn’t corporate with the CDN as well? How to fix this…? what was the problem?!
By default Cloudflare only cache static files, not HTML which can makes big difference to the page load time. Many page speed testing tool will complaint about increased TTFB / slow server response time. You can resolve this problem by caching HTML using the APO services that comes at USD 5/mo. You can configure it manually as well but I think that would require some technical knowledge. So the easiest way is using APO and Cloudflare Official plugin.
