I love CloudFront. All my assets are hosted by them, and they cut page load time in half, and my average bill is around $0.15/month. They're good, fast, and cheap — pick three!

I first wore my first domain cloudflare IE "https://rifqiarief.tk" until now can still be visited, I am really grateful to the cloudflare, thanks to rare to my website down cloudflare, before my website is down so often, because I'm wearing a great resource, and dilimit by my hosting party "be advised, I wear free hosting:D" now thanks to him, to my website really stable, unless it's really my full server connection my server, run faster, regardless of my location in Indonesia, unfortunately the cloudflare doesn't have a datacenter in Indonesia, if you don't believe me, please visit my website "https://rifqiarief.tk"
Ridiculously high added fees for everything.

Their website only shows the prices for some aspects of the service, mainly just the bandwidth. But where they really get you is by charging high fees for everything else. Their basic rate only includes North America and Europe. You have to pay extra for other locations. Then hosting a subdomain costs $100 extra/month (no idea why, other CDNs do it for free), additional zones cost extra (normally free with other CDNs), no caching rules unless you pay extra, hidden fees for push data storage, etc etc.
I use CloudFront for lightning-fast worldwide distribution, caching and HTTP redirects.
Cloudfront keeps the load of distributing our assets off our single Amazon S3 bucket. It also allows for configuring SSL for our custom domain.
Handle DNS requests and easily change the AWS service it directs to without fiddling with DNS
Our interface is beautiful and serves up a lot of static content. CloudFront helps us deliver the content quickly.
CloudFront's easy to use in front of S3, especially for videos, which don't load reliably from S3. We've noticed latency issues with CloudFront, and so don't use it for everything, though.
Just awesome service from amazon to deploy your app around the world. International deployment used to be impossible for start-ups, it is now available and affordable.
We leverage Cloudfront to deliver our product to our customers users around the world
We chose CloudFront mostly because it’s incredibly popular. But also because it’s the recommended CDN for Heroku, which means there shouldn’t be any problems using them together. Rails makes it really easy to drop in a CDN reference for your app so that when your assets get compiled, they’re shipped off to the CDN and then deployed with your app.
So anytime we push to Heroku, we’re pushing up to CloudFront (if the assets don’t already exist). One major issue we still haven’t been able to solve involves Fonts. Has anyone actually been able to get fonts served up through CloudFront using Rails 4 and Heroku? Literally spent hours researching this and can’t find any solutions. We ended up just referencing a CDN for all the font libraries.
We have a separate distribution for each environment, since I don’t think it’s possible to use the same distribution for the multiple domains.
media CDN and edge cache, poor mans reverse proxy to separate static asset traffic from application traffic from marketing traffic etc
Parked in front of an nginx instance that serves all of our static assets. Performance and reliability have been excellent, and the header pass-through rules are wonderful. Price is affordable, as well.
lots of good stuff available for free that you don't even think about it, default configuration saves you weeks of work, painless https setup, good to kickstart projects
I have limited experience with CloudFlare, but it has a great reputation and having a good focused CDN to rely on is paramount for high-availability apps.
Cloudflare sits in front of the entire site providing HTTP2 and HTTPS, which is particularly important due the large number of SVG images for the headings that need to be send down to the browser in parallel. Cloudflare also manages the DNS for DKIM TXT records, a dynamic root ALIAS record to the Heroku application, and GeoIP country headers.
We use CF for DNS hosting, since their AnyCast DNS provides the best latency in the business, and they support DNSSEC + IPv6. We don't use the CDN or website optimizations.
We use CloudFlare as a DNS provider, as a CDN and for its page rules, e. g. to enforce HTTPS for certain domains.
DNS Hosting for all of our customers we don't need to worry about our own DNS Servers.
Railgun Optimizer, CDN Cache and Free SSL of course.
Great for performance and security. Now offering free SSL for modern browsers, how could we not love CF?
We added MaxCDN in hopes we could offer a faster loading website to our blog readers.
