Hello !

I am interested to know is paying 200$ a month for Cloudflare worth it at all ?
Me and few of my school friends are interested to chip in 50 bucks each but we do not have any experience with this company.
I am asking you, forum members who do use this network, to give me some pros and cons of having a cloudflare for this price.

Cloudflare has been around since 2009, and they are trustworthy.
You can get similar features at other CDN companies for substantially less. So unless you absolutely need Cloudflare, search around.

Yes you can go with this option if you are owning a business website with big revenue, Cloudflare can help your website in many aspects as secure, speed..etc.
If you only use Cloudflare for new websites, it is not necessary to buy Cloudflare premium 200$ a month because it will cost you more.

Yea, it's a trustworthy company but have you taken advantage of their free plan?

Also, if you are looking more advanced features like WAF, Page rules, Advanced DDoS support, Custom SSL, Custom Nameservers, etc then you should go with the Business plan. :)

Any info about maybe why would you pay for $200 plan with Cloudflare? Also when you add a website you have the ability to choose free plan (which i recommend you first), 20$ month and your 200$.

Just go with free plan, it has the same network only not many options like waf etc which you can do it in your current server aswell, and you spend alof of money.

I don't know much about this subject but it makes sense to me that you go small first, since you guys are just getting started.
After time passes and you build some revenue, go for a more expensive options.

Yeah, you are right.
We will take some time in considering this since we did not form a network that might be able to sustain the financial needs of ours.

I'm concern about this. If you will gonna ask me if the $200/month plan for cloudflare subscription is worth it? I guess nah, Sucuri offers a much more security than cloudflare. They only ask for just a $199/year in order to protect your website. They also have some protection features that can make your website more safer. :) This is just my opinion, Thank you.

This used to happen for personal websites because of paying $200/month is really a big problem for someone if they don't earn more than that amount on their websites. But for $200/month for business companies working online, then it likes peanuts and they can easily pay for that without thinking more.

Also, security is one of features of Cloudflare, Cloudflare offers more features as CDN, caching, DNS, security...etc..while Sucuri is more about security.

I get your point. I know what Cloudflare can do to your website. They are focused on giving offers regarding the CDN. But I think that it would be great if you will gonna have the best security for your website. CloudFlare offers only about common code injection hacks, XSS JavaScript exploits, and form submissions. They do not include some features like file change detection, malware scanning, blacklist monitoring, and many other security features. You can add some malware scanning but you will add additional cost for this. Unlike Sucuri, Sucuri is more often a security focused company and they offer also a website application firewall protects you against DDOS, SQL injections, XSS JavaScript injections, comment and contact form spam. It is a combination of securities that can protect your website firmly.

The most part of common code injection can be blocked directly with a web server, it's pretty easy to block base58 encrypted content and other solution used to encrypt malwares. For malware scanning, you can create a cronjob to scan automatically your files with clam-av, and file change detection can be done with git. So, in my opinion, there isn't a lot of reasons to pay for those features, especially for a php based firewall which will impact your website loading speed.

But to answer to the OP question, with the first Cloudflare paid plan, you can cache static html content with Cloudflare, and with the Business Plan you can bypass cache on cookies, so it provide the ability to use Cloudflare as full-page cache system without impacting special pages like cart/order/my account.
