As previously posted I have been using Cloudflare on our Filled Party Bags store for a while. However, recently the site which was cloudflared experienced long delays (up to 30 seconds)! Stragely this did not seem to affect the origin server – implying the issue was outside of the origin or tha the origin was throttling cloudflare,
After some googling it appeared that I was not the only one having these kind of issues with CF; and in this instance disabling cloudflare resolved these lags.
As a result, I am going to give Incapusula a whirl which, have a slightly different proposition to cloudflare.
For wordpress (including this blog) however I’ve never had an issue with CF.
