Should I use Cloudflare CDN?

Hey guys probably many of you are using cloudflare free CDN service then tell me what impact are you noticing.

Hey friends actually I have a Hindi blog 99% percent traffic from India so I thing I don’t need to use CDN. But… my competitors are using cloudflare.

I know it increases the speed but I found it create problems. I have enabled last time at noticed it created 500 errors.

So should I use cloudflare free cdn??

Generally, you don’t need a CDN if your 95% audience and server is in same country. I also feel that using CDN can be costly in terms of Bandwidth compared to having host.

Let’s do the maths

1 TB bandwidth price = $30 minimum for any CDN but same 1 TB can be achieved using $5 plan DigitalOcean cloud Instance.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

However I would like to make an exception in above answer.

You may need Cloudflare or Sucuri kind of firewall if you need to handle a lot of traffic in budget, or if you are under DDoS/BOT attack.

Everyone can have different requirements or priority. If perf is just then you don’t need in same region.

Enable CDN with Cloudflare and observe your site speed. If you can see any significant improvement in your site loading speed, continue with it else don’t use CDN.

Option 2: You can go for any premium CDN to load Images, and Scripts which also can you a performance boost.

Since CDN works with each site differently, you can come to a conclusion only if you can conduct your own testing.

Who offers CDN ar $5?

My requirement is just and just speed.

  • Site hosted on nginx server.

  • GZip enabled

  • HTTPS 2 Enabled

  • Using lightweight generatepress theme

  • Fast Cgi cache enabled

Still speed not as expected.

Edited my answer to make it more clear.
