What is CloudFlare? What can it do for me?

Our Experience:

CloudFlare doubles the speed at which your Web Sites load. The Reason: They take a mirror image of your site and store it on remote servers around the globe. 

Please note: If you plan on using a SSL certificate then you must pay for the service.

The CloudFlare Overview:

CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through our intelligent global network. We automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. We also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.

CloudFlare's system gets faster and smarter as our community of users grows larger. We have designed the system to scale with our goal in mind: helping power and protect the entire Internet.

CloudFlare can be used by anyone with a website and their own domain, regardless of your choice in platform. From start to finish, setup takes most website owners less than 5 minutes. Adding your website requires only a simple change to your domain's DNS settings. There is no hardware or software to install or maintain and you do not need to change any of your site's existing code. If you are ever unhappy you can turn CloudFlare off as easily as you turned it on. Our core service is free and we offer enhanced services for websites who need extra features like real timereporting or SSL.

On average, a website on CloudFlare:

  • Loads twice as fast

  • Uses 60% less bandwidth

  • Has 65% fewer requests and is way more secure           

All for FREE!
