Whenever I register a domain name, the first thing I do is change the name servers to Cloudflare. Because I use Cloudflare DNS on my devices, any change I make will be immediately testable.

Some of the great features of using Cloudflare (even the free plan):

  • DNS management and fast/secure servers

  • Global Content Delivery Network (CDN) caching

  • URL PageRules

  • WebWorkers

  • Basic Analytics

  • IPv4 (client) -> IPv6 (server) reverse-proxying

  • Origin server address privacy

  • DDoS protection

Netlify also provides DNS and CDN services so you can pick and choose when to use which per site.
