How CloudFlare works? Print

  • 3

CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online.

Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through CloudFlare's intelligent global network. CloudFlare CDN automatically optimizes the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. CloudFlare also blocks threats and limits 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 CloudFlare's community of users grows larger. CloudFlare CDN has designed the system to scale with one 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. CloudFlare core service is free and CloudFlare CDN offesr enhanced services for websites who need extra features like real time reporting or SSL.

All CONNECT 2U2 SSD and TERRA Hosting Plans have CloudFlare settings integrated in the Control Panel - easy to use, for enhanced content delivery, security and reliability.
