Cloudflare for .com.au domains 2020

I use Cloudflare for my .com domains, and am happy with the results.

I’m hosting the Wordpress website on AWS Lightsail. I recently registered a .com.au domain for this project with GoDaddy, which I’m hoping to migrate to Cloudlfare. I tried to do this today, and it doesn’t seem possible. What’s more, I read that using the free tier, Cloudflare is not as fast in Australia than in other countries: Cloudflare traffic routing in Australia

  1. Is it possible to use Cloudlfare on a .com.au domain
  2. Is it possible to transfer the domain registration to Cloudflare on a .com.au domain
  3. Is Route 53 a better option?

Thanks for any pointers :slight_smile:

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. No. DNS has a negligible effect on website performance.

Just a quick further question. Do you know any cheap alternatives to Go Daddy for .com.au Registrar?
