    Hi anatoly14,

    You should see stats about speed in your CloudFlare reports (on and off of CloudFlare). One thing to keep in mind is that the speed increases also depend on where your visitors are coming from & hitting one of our datacenters when going to your site.

    I've had good experiences with them so far. I've been using cloudflare for about 8 months or so now.

    I have used it on 2 sites and the avg bounce rates have gone down about 20% over the past two months. The benefit I wanted was the faster load times and according to cloudflares stats, its gone down about 1.5 to 2 seconds

      This sounds like normal behavior. If you want to know how we do the page load comparison time, we send a probe on and off of CloudFlare to calculate this number.

    "My web hosting company has installed cloudflare in their server directly. "

    This actually makes things a lot easier because you don't have to worry about changing DNS to point to us. The only drawback is that A records can't be proxied with the hosting provider setup, so:

    1. You would want to sign up directly with CloudFlare if you need A records cached orproxied
    2. need to set up redirects from root to www
