Suggested settings for Cloudflare
I always recommend to my clients that they use a CDN on their website. These are my recommendations for people using the Cloudflare Free plan, along with some warnings to watch out for.
- Status: Orange Cloud - this will ensure the requests go through Cloudflare.
- SSL: Full (Strict) - if your web server has an SSL certificate, otherwise Flexible.
- Always Use HTTPS: On
- TLS 1.3: Enabled
- Automatic HTTPS Rewrites: On
- Brotli: On
- Caching Level: Standard
- Browser Cache Expiration: 1 day - Feel free to make this longer, but be aware that changes you make may take even longer to be seen by the user.
