    Hello

    Im using cloudflare DNS only, without any other caching/security.

    the great part is if Im under attack I just click a button, and that's it

    does moving to another DNS hosting like (AWS, Google, Azure, dnsimple.com) Adds any further speed of the website "our website has mild traffic"

    From my understanding, the only speed advantage a DNS service provides is reduced server latency across the world. From my testing, Cloudflare performed better than Rackspace Cloud DNS and Namecheap Premium DNS. I have yet to try Amazom Route 53 and other services.

    Amazon Route 53 is nice. I just moved everything off of CF over to R53.

    What do you mean by "Clicking a button"? If you're under an attack and you're just clicking a button then you're using their security.

    I used CF for awhile. The only thing I have an issue with is CF basically owning your security as it passes through their network. If they get a request from an authority to see all your traffic, they'll pipe that right through whatever authority wants the data. Added, some users have complained about CF and TOR, even after I added the necessary things to CF which makes it TOR compatible.

    CF is nice because it's free. R53 charges.

    I mean I can enable the CF security immediately by login in into the CF and enable their security features to route the attacker away. (by adding a new security layer)

    So, you're using more than just the DNS is my point.

    If you have a simple website, just stick with CF they're one of the, if not the top, provider.
