So what is CloudFlare?
The first question some of you are asking is what is this CloudFlare nonsense and why should you care. Not surprisingly, CloudFlare does a great job summarizing what it is they do in a 5 minute video (really, it’s worth the time) found right on their home page. Even though the video covers it, we’ll highlight a few of the biggest perks of using their free service:
- Your site loads faster, uses less bandwidth, and serves fewer requests by filtering out the malicious traffic.
- CloudFlare uses a CDN type delivery strategy to cache static content, reducing load times for visitors all across the world
- Increased security measures. CloudFlare makes use of its global network to identify malicious traffic and filter based on that detection.
- Statistics and traffic reporting provide a better insight into your sites traffic demographic
Is this a free service?
One of the coolest things about CloudFlare is they offer their basic protection free of cost to anyone with an account. This means you’re able to make use of all the great features, improved performance, and peace of mind without spending a penny more. They do offer a paid plan which you can upgrade to at any time, called CloudFlare Pro, which brings additional features to your site. With a Pro account, you’d have access to features like a website preloader, advanced security measures, and more frequent stat updates for your traffic.
Does CloudFlare provide anything else?
The ladies and gentlemen over there seem to be a busy bunch, whether it be adding more features to their lineup, improving their already impressive API, or releasing plugins/software for commonly used programs. They’ve also got this little setup called CloudFlare Apps. Their Apps setup provides for one click installs of some very common web apps. Some more well known Apps they’ve got include Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools, Pingdom, and VigLink. Take a minute and review them all, you never know if you’ll find something useful.
The team behind CloudFlare is also responsible for Project Honey Pot, a web based service aimed at identifying and stopping bots and spammers that attempt to scrape addresses from your website.
