CloudFlare Features

Designed to protect your website and your reputation


Content Delivery Network (CDN)

180 data centers located across the globe provide visitors with location-based access to your website, while removing latency and improving performance.

Asynchronous Javascript

Automatically optimizes your pages to minimize the number of network connections and ensure even third party resources won't slow down page rendering.

DDOS Mitigation

Unmetered mitigation of DDoS stops illegitimate volumetric traffic at the Cloudflare edge. Cloudflare FREE identifies and prevents harmful attacks.

HTTPS Rewrites

Eliminate mixed content and browser warnings by rewriting insecure URLs dynamically from known (secure) hosts to their secure counterpart.

DNSSEC

DNSSEC ensures that web traffic is safely directed to the host server, so a connection to your website is not intercepted by a man-in-the-middle attack.

Minification

The removal of unnecessary characters from HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Stripping files can save 20% of a file’s size and works without caching dynamic pages.

Bandwidth Savings

Save bandwidth through cached content served from CloudFlare data centers rather than the origin server. This frees up RAM, CPU, I/O and other resources.

5 Minute Set-Up

No installation or configuration is necessary to integrate websites into the Cloudflare edge network. DNS safely connects the raw Internet to the host.

Frequently Asked Questions

CloudFlare is a web performance and security company.

If you haven’t heard about CloudFlare before, the proposition is simple: make any website twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats. Cloudflare makes it possible for any small site to be as progressive and technologically sound as the Internet giants. CloudFlare currently powers more than 400 billion monthly page views - more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined - and over 1.2 billion monthly users regularly pass through our network.
CloudFlare is designed to take a great hosting platform like ROCKHOST.COM Inc. and extend it to new heights. With data centers strategically placed around the world, CloudFlare routes requests to the closest proximity reducing latency.

As traffic passes through the data centers, the static portions are cached. By automatically moving the static parts of a website closer to visitors, the overall performance of the site improves significantly.

CloudFlare’s intelligent caching system also means you save bandwidth, which means saving money, and decreases the server load, which means your website or 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.
CloudFlare’s security offers a  broad range of protections against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or spam submissions to blogs and comment forms.

What is powerful about the CloudFlare approach is that the system gets smarter as the community grows. The more sites, the more information to analyze. Traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time adapts the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.
