CloudFlare is fully implemented within our web hosting infrastructure and our clients can enable CloudFlare on their domain names directly from our control panel, within seconds.
We have partnered with CloudFlare in order to make CloudFlare work much more efficiently on our servers than any other web hosting company, as we are a CloudFlare optimized partner. CloudFlare Optimized Partners offer all the benefits of a CloudFlare Certified Partner, plus Railgun.
Railgun ensures that the connection between our network and the CloudFlare network is as fast as possible. Railgun achieves a 99.6% compression ratio for previously uncacheable web objects by using techniques similar to those used in the compression of high-quality video. This results in an average 730% performance increase.
When a request is made to a CloudFlare server for a web page that is not in cache CloudFlare makes an HTTP connection to the origin server to request the page. It's that HTTP connection that Railgun accelerates and secures.
Railgun uses a new caching mechanism based on comparing page versions to determine what needs to be transmitted across the Internet to the CloudFlare network. Using this mechanism CloudFlare is able to achieve typical 99.6% compression (taking, for example, a 100k web page down to 400 bytes) and a speedup of over 700%.
CloudFlare has 23 datacenters all around the world which your website is delivered from the closest datacenter to your visitors, improving load times significantly.
CloudFlare leverages multiple data sources of malicious online threats and stops any attempted attacks to your website before they can get to your website.
CloudFlare blocks malicious bots which post spam comments on your website before they can reach your site, which reduces your spam content on your site.
CloudFlare alerts your human visitors who have infected computers to take action and only allows them to view your website by typing a CAPTCHA.
Your website’s content will be offloaded by CloudFlare’s 23 datacenters which will reduce the amount of requests to your account, decreasing your account’s CPU usage.
CloudFlare gives you more information about your website’s visitors and categorizes the visits into human visitors, threats & search engine crawlers.
