    Hi @Bluemad,

    Yes, you can use both CloudFlare and another CDN service together.

    If you use two CDN "CloudFlare+your2ndCDN" the second CDN expose you to malicious attack and spam: CloudFlare benefict are on fact lost ...

    Hi @sLa NGjI's,

    Many people use CloudFlare with another CDN such as MaxCDN or Amazon. I'm not aware of any security hole.

    The second CDN add:

    1 - More hop to files chain
    2 - The files on 2cnCDN was not protected to malicious or spam
    3 - The implementation of 2ndCDN add more CPU and memory load on your host
    4 - If one hacker o bootnet attack your 2ndCDN your site is probably on a instable or down state
    5 - The total of 1st byte host needed to surf your domain was increased on 1: the 2ndCDN. This cause a degradation of site performance: YSLOW and GooglePageSpeed for example ...
    6 - If you change one files on your site have two different versions when CloudFlare and 2ndCDN was not syncronized ...

    If possible use two CDN?

    1 - "CloudFlare+anotherCDN" is not ok
    2 - "MaxCDN+Amazon" is ok
