I installed CloudFlare as a test to one domain on my server, supposing it would be quicker. But it's not. The waiting time (I think, otherwise known as time to first byte) has gone up considerably.
Is there any way to reduce this? I believe CloudFlare carries out lots of tests, which I am guessing is what is causing this increased wait time. Is there a way to turn all this off? I'm just interested in what their improvements to DNS and TLS time is.
