How Cloudflare increases speed and security of your site
We’ll make any website twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats.
We power more than 400 billion monthly page views. This is more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined. Over 1.2 billion monthly users regularly pass through our network. We’re really glad Greens247 has partnered with Cloudflare.
Faster web performance
We run more than a 150 data centers strategically located around the world. When you sign up for Cloudflare, we begin routing your traffic to the nearest data center.
As your traffic passes through the data centers, we intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on our servers for a short period of time. This is typically less than 2 hours before we check to see if they’ve been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to your visitors, the overall performance of your site improves significantly.
Cloudflare’s intelligent caching system also means your website will use less bandwidth. This means faster website loading for visitors, and less load on your hosting platform. Web application will run faster and more efficiently than ever. On average, Cloudflare customers see a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage, and a 65% in total requests to their servers. The overall effect is that Cloudflare will typically cut the load time for pages on your site by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.
Broad web security
Over the course of 2011, Cloudflare identified a 700% increase in the number of distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS) we track on the Internet (see the chart below). As attacks like these increase, Cloudflare is stepping up to protect sites.
Cloudflare’s security protections offer a broad range of protections against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or spam submitted to a blog or comment form. What is powerful about our approach is that the system gets smarter the more sites that are part of the Cloudflare community. We analyze the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and adapt the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.
In time, our goal is nothing short of making attacks against websites a relic of history. And, given our scale and the billions of different attacks we see and adapt to every year, we’re well on our way to achieving that for sites on the Cloudflare network.
Any website can deploy Cloudflare, regardless of your underlying platform. By integrating closely with Greens247, we make the process of setting up Cloudflare “1 click easy”. Open your existing Greens247 cPanel dashboard. Just look for the Cloudflare icon, choose the domain you want to enable, and click the orange cloud. That’s it!
We’ve kept the price as low as possible and plans offered through Greens247 are free. Moreover, we never charge you for bandwidth or storage, therefore saving you tons via reduced bandwidth costs.
