Hi, Bruce here. Way back in the day before CF went public, my site pinoy-koleksyon.net was one of the 500 beta testers. I recently put it to sleep after 12+ years but I still maintain the mail server and I have 4 donated MX records for the Honeypot Project and it was because of my active use of the HPP reporting spam IP#s that I ended up being invited to be a beta tester for CF. Keep up the good work Cloudflare. :slight_smile:

Simon here! I work at Cloudflare with our Support team in London and have been at the company for about 4 years. When I joined there were a literally handful of us in London and now we’re maybe 20x that size!

I’m really excited to see this community become a place where we can share ideas and solutions and discuss Cloudflare with all of you.

Hello, I am Jake. I work on our Support team in San Francisco. I have been at the company nearly 2 years, helping our customers solve their issues. I have been on a number of communities solving Cloudflare problems for longer than that, however, as I have been a customer of Cloudflare since 2011.

Happy to see a community here, and hope we can see it grow and solve problems.

Hello everyone,

I’m a beginning WordPress developer and I’ve had a great experience so far on CF. I use $5 a month VPS server from DigitalOcean running Nginx, Redis, PHP7, MariaDB, and Memcahce. With the combination of these optimized stacks and CF, I can serve 2 million unique users per month for $5. I would not be able to do that without CF!

I teach free classes at my university for setting up WordPress and the last session of my class is all about CloudFlare. We spend weeks creating our sites and on the last day we push them through CF and watch them pick up speed. It’s a great way to end a sprint of work.

I spend most of my time benchmarking and comparing the large CDN’s out there. My favorite combination is CF and the Google Cloud for heavy video content.

Some of my favorite things about CF

  • Free tier has a lot of great features
  • Rocket Loader really helps WordPress speed up
  • Page Rules can be very powerful!
  • DNS record switching is fast and accurate
  • I love hearing DDOS stories from Matthew too!

I model 3d assets by day and develop websites by night! I’ve had some bad experiences with aws, gcs, and digitalocean. But CF has always been rock solid for me, 3 years in and I’ve never had an issue on the CF end of things.

Hello!

I mostly experiment with web infrastructure in development, but have recently started to learn more about production environments. Right now I’m using CloudFlare for DNS only, and I’m looking forward to use more of their services in the near future.

Looking forward to learn more about the web, and exploring more of CloudFlare :grinning:

Glad Cloudflare finally has a forum. Will be a dedicated member as I cannot speak highly enough of Cloudflare. We used it on ALL our sites for nto only DDoS mitigation but also security.
