CloudFlare vs KeyCDN: 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, KeyCDN is detailed as "A CDN crafted with ease and simplicity in mind - speed up your website". KeyCDN is a superfast Content Delivery Network with best prices on the market. This CDN allows you to accelerate any kind of content.

CloudFlare and KeyCDN can be primarily classified as "Content Delivery Network" tools.

Some of the features offered by CloudFlare are:

  • CDN
  • WAF (Web Application Firewall)
  • DDOS Protection

On the other hand, KeyCDN provides the following key features:

  • HTTP/2 support
  • Free automated Let's Encrypt SSL
  • Pay-as-you-go pricing

"Easy setup, great cdn" is the primary reason why developers consider CloudFlare over the competitors, whereas "Pay-as-you-go" was stated as the key factor in picking KeyCDN.
