    I decided to try Cloudflare this holiday weekend on a bunch of my sites -- all of which are also running W3 Total Cache with Cloufront CDN.

    I had a few questions along the way and submitted tickets in the CF dashboard. Within minutes (on a holiday weekend!) I received answers that got me on my way. It was the best support I have EVER seen.

    I have been testing my sites and I'm seeing very clear speed improvements with CF added to the W3TC/Cloudfront setup. I considered my sites highly optimized before trying CF -- and now they are simply screaming. I'd say CF reduced load time of every site by about 10%. I'll take it. The response time of my site with the highest traffic went from about 490ms to 440ms -- and the total load time was reduced by more -- I'd say about 25% -- from just under 2 seconds to around 1.5 seconds.

    These results are with the "Pro" account level which enables the "Rocket Loader" feature. Well worth the money.

    If you have any questions - ask me. If you have a busy site, lots of plugins and significant traffic, W3TC/Cloudfront/Cloudflare is the killer combination.

    I would like to know how you are using W3TC/Cloudfront/Cloudflare in a little more detail.

    Could you share with me your set up? Are using managed hosting plus CloudFront? Is it set up so CloudFlare looks for the content first and then it goes to CloudFront? What type of hosting are you using?

    Any help would be wonderful!

    Thanks!
