Cloudflare is a website optimization technology which uses a number of techniques to improve your site performance. By routing your traffic through their global network, Cloudflare will inspect and filter out malicious requests, unwanted traffic, and other resource draining requests. In addition to filtering traffic, Cloudflare also provides caching for static content through their CDN style setup.
Cloudflare delivers performance, security, reliability and insights for all websites that join the network. Once your website is on Cloudflare, all traffic will be routed through their intelligent global network of 100+ data centers.
Cloudflare’s network serves your heaviest website content to visitors based on their location, resulting in optimized page load speeds, reduced bandwidth consumption, and improved SEO.
Cloudflare’s platform includes a myriad of security features, including DDoS attack mitigation and a web application firewall (WAF) for paid plans.
To make things even easier, we’ve built Cloudflare controls directly into Mydataknox cPanel. It takes a few clicks to enable the service on any of your domains or subdomains.
There are no hardware, software, or code changes for you to worry about. We’ll even take care of the DNS changes and setup your Cloudflare.com account automatically.
According to Cloudflares website, an average website will see a 30% increase in speed, use 60% less bandwidth and serve 65% fewer requests when using Cloudflare. In addition to the speed increases, your site will also be protected by basic security features such as hotlinking protection, the ability to block traffic by IP or country, email harvesting protection, and a number of other features.
Along with the security and speed, you will also be provided detailed statistics about your traffic, updated every 24 hours. You can read more about all the features on the free plan on the Cloudflare website.
In order to activate Cloudflare for your domains, all you need to do is login to your cPanel and look for the Cloudflare icon.
