Jubilee Web Host is excited to announce our partnership with CloudFlare, the website performance and security company.
Cloudflare is a Content Delivery Network (CDN) that increases the performance and security of every website on its network, protecting them from a broad range of threats and attacks. Over 9,000,000 websites run on the Cloudflare network. These include individual blogs, e-commerce stores and websites of more than 500 Fortune companies and Government agencies. Cloudflare powers almost a trillion monthly page views. This is more than the combined monthly page views for Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram . Over 25% of the Internet’s population and traffic regularly passes through their network.
CloudFlare Increases The Speed And Security of Your Website
Cloudflare makes it easy for any website to be as fast and secure as the Internet giants.
Faster Website Performance
Cloudflare was designed to take a hosting platform like Jubilee Web Host and make it more fast, secure, and reliable.
Cloudflare runs 152 data centers strategically located around the world. When you sign up for Cloudflare, your traffic starts routing to the nearest data center.
As your traffic passes through their data centers, CoudFlare intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on their servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before they 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 website improves significantly.
Cloudflare’s intelligent caching system also means you save bandwidth. This alone means saving money. It decreases the load on your servers, which means your web application will run faster and more efficiently than ever. On average, Cloudflare customers register 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 website by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.
Broad Web Security
At the beginning of 2016, Cloudflare experienced and mitigated against some of the largest distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks ever seen. As attacks like these increase, Cloudflare is stepping up to protect websites.
Cloudflare’s security protections offer a broad range of protections against attacks. These include DDoS, hacking, spam submitted to blogs or comment forms, etc. What is powerful about their approach is that the system gets smarter the more sites that are part of the Cloudflare community. They analyze the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and adapt the security systems. This helps to ensure only good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.
In time, CloudFlare’s goal is nothing short of making attacks against websites a relic of history. And, they are well on their way to achieving that for websites on the Cloudflare network. This is due their scale and the billions of different attacks they see and adapt to every year,
Any website can deploy Cloudflare regardless of your underlying platform. Hosting your website with Jubilee Web Host makes the whole process of setting up Cloudflare quick and easy. You will be able to activate CloudFlare on your domain with a single click. This is done through your hosting control panel (cPanel) dashboard. Just look for the Cloudflare icon, choose the domain you want to enable. You will then be able to choose whether to enable for only CNAME or full DNS. And you will be ready to go!
