    You should use www because today you have a small web site, and tomorrow you want a big web site. Really big.

    But what if I don’t want my personal web site to be a really big web site?

        I use Cloudflare on things that get 10 views a day for a simple reason: Cloudflare nameservers are free to use and the DNS zones setup is easy there. It’s not the case of some registrars (particularly some obscure nic.TLD).

          That’s why I’m using them. My registrar’s servers got DDoSed, so I switched to Cloudflare. Thus far they have saved me a few hundred kilobytes of bandwidth and provided SSL on top of a bunch of sites that no certificate authority has ever verified. I’m far too lazy to switch back, but the benefits I get are underwhelming.

        This is clearly targeted at companies and it’s a point I’ve tried to make several times with many people and failed.

        “DNSimple has ALIAS”, they say. They don’t care that it’s non-standard and locks you in. They cared for a little bit a while back when DNSimple was down due to a DDoS, but they’ve now moved on. Oh well.
