Will CloudFlare accelerate my subdomains?

There are two ways to setup Cloudflare on your domain name - the CNAME setup (activated via one click in cPanel control panel) and the FULL DNS setup (activated by switching your domain name to use Cloudflare DNS nameservers). You can compare the two methods here: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/203685674-What-are-the-partner-Cloudflare-setup-options-Full-DNS-vs-CNAME-

Cloudflare with CNAME setup:
Cloudflare will protect your main website if it's running on a www address. For this reason, we recommend the non-www website redirects to your www website (using an .htaccess file).
Cloudflare will also protect any subdomains. On your Cloudflare account please ensure those subdomains have the orange cloud icon. (If they have the gray cloud icon, click it on to activate it, it will become orange).

Cloudflare with FULL DNS setup:
Cloudflare will protect your main website, whether it's running on www or non-www.
Cloudflare will also protect any subdomains. On your Cloudflare account please ensure those subdomains have the orange cloud icon. (If they have the gray cloud icon, click it on to activate it, it will become orange).
