comment Do domain registrar affect the ping time of your domain? How to optimize?
Yes, it is especially true when using CloudFlare. Since we use an Anycast network, pinging the CloudFlare IPs is not going to return solid results. Users should use a traceroute instead of a ping.

comment Heroku Application Error on naked domain
We do support DNS at the root (CNAME domain.com) in our DNS settings. Users that decide to us CNAME at the root, however, should be aware that they will likely have issues receiving mail from some mail servers because of DNS RFC compliance (CNAME at root breaks this & users should use an A record wherever possible for the root domain).

comment CloudFlare offers DNS root CNAMEs. Any resolution gotchas to be aware of?
"it would indeed break your MX and SOA records" The biggest issue we have seen is with MX records (generally recommend setting A records for root domain) & this is largely a DNS RFC compliance issue.
