Is any one here using CloudFlare for your websites? What are advantages of CloudFlare? Since I have use CloudFlare but out of speeding up my website speed, I didn't see other factors to help my websites. How about you?

There are a lot of features with Cloudflare. The best one after the CDN and web content optimization service is probably the free SSL/TLS Certificates with the latest protocol support (HTTP/2 & TLSv1.3).
With Cloudflare origin certificates you can get a wildcard SSL cert valid for 15 years.

In most of case, Cloudflare will provide a better speed and security because they use the last softwares and protocols available (TLSv1.3 - Brotli compression etc..) when you enable the proxy on your website.
But you can choose to not use Cloudflare proxy. And use only their DNS hosting service which is one of the best with very good performances, fast propagation and global redundancy.

You forget to mention, that most of cyber-criminals are using cloudflare aswell without any problem. And cloudflare are silent even if you sent any request to them to takedown any of them...

Yes it is just for any websites are under DDoS attacks and it is really important for them when they faced DDoS. For me, I have not an opportunity to use this service to stop DDoS attacks because my websites have not got any DDoS attacks yet.

We recommend CloudFlare to our clients for many reasons:

* speeding up the website;
* hiding their website in order to protect it from attackers;
* need to be seen at USA location.

We also receive reports from Cloudflare if some of our clients are doing what they are not supposed to be doing and we then can take action and solve it. There is always a risk with every service that some of the customers will use it for illegal reasons, but from personal experience CloudFlare is not supporting illegal activities.

I prefer CloudFlare since it has many reasons to be used. It filters the out most of the spam attacks at the Name-server level and such request doesn't hot your server. Also it's CDN is free and easy to integrate that you don't need to change your image URL. Using CloudFlare CDN will increase your site performance, I have been using it for 8 months and and never had any issue encountered.
