CloudFlare vs Dyn: What are the differences?
Developers describe CloudFlare as "The Web Performance & Security Company". Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet. On the other hand, Dyn is detailed as "Managed DNS, Outsourced DNS & Anycast DNS". An all-in-one Managed DNS service for your registered domain names. Dyn DNS is the perfect solution for your domain name’s DNS needs, whether it is for personal or business use. It gives you complete control over your DNS zone and its associated DNS records, complete with a simple DNS management web interface.
CloudFlare and Dyn are primarily classified as "Content Delivery Network" and "DNS Management" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by CloudFlare are:
- WAF (Web Application Firewall)
- DDOS Protection
On the other hand, Dyn provides the following key features:
- Resource Records- 75 records
- Domains/Zones- 1 Zone (yourdomain.com)
- DNS Queries per Month- 600,000
"Easy setup, great cdn" is the primary reason why developers consider CloudFlare over the competitors, whereas "API" was stated as the key factor in picking Dyn.
