Cloudflare problem? - Sepu - 10-14-2013 10:32 PM

Hi,
I use cloudflare for CDN, but the results of my tests say that there is not CDN, why?

How are you using CloudFlare? Both domains resolve to zyma.com.

Yes I use it, do you think that there is a problem on cloudflare?

But how do you use it? I don't see any evidence that any CloudFlare services are used on your websites.

Did you set everything up correctly? Your nameservers are currently ns5.zyma.com and ns4.zyma.com.

Yes, I use Zyma and via cpanel I activated cloudflare, that it is connected to a correct dns.

Yes, you can use a naked domain with CloudFlare. If you activate through a CloudFlare hosting partner, the www CNAME is required because of DNS RFC compliance issues. If you prefer not to use www on your site, then you can add the domain directly to CloudFlare.

This is my configuration:

CNAME http://www.flaccadori.it points to http://www.flaccadori.it.cdn.cloudflare.net

Is that wrong?

You are automatically redirecting http://www.flaccadori.it to http://flaccadori.it, so noone ever gets to the CloudFlare-powered site.

Are you sure you need a CDN, though? If your target demographic is located in Italy (I assume because your site is in Italian), then ideally you would host the site in Italy. CloudFlare has no Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Italy, so unless you receive many international visitors, there wouldn't be much of a benefit, if any, in terms of latency. The closest PoPs are probably Paris or Vienna, but compared to the UK, where you currently host your site, you'll hardly notice the difference.

I use a CDN like cloudflare because WebPageTest reccomend to use a CDN.
