My Website is Updated to Cloudflare

I updated this website to cloudflare, it was very easy to set up. Now, my website is running way faster than being on shared hosting. I know I know, what am I thinking? Should I upgrade to cloudflare? Well, yes for security purposes. This is a win. By doing so my spam has been down by a lot. It blocks a lot of bad IP ranges. This keeps the good guys in and all the bad guys out.

Cloudflare is awesome it offers SSL protection too if you need it but you can get a cheap ssl certificate from outside vendor which I recommend because you don’t want your information scene by man in the middle attack. Firesheep. But most modern website have ssl. Make sure when your buying something or logging into a website you see https. Https is very important. This will encrypt your log in session. You do not want the bad guys to see you.

With cloudflare now, it automatically makes your website way faster? How may you ask? It has cdn hosts, minifier, and caching. Basically, if your webhost is down they cached your website so it’s still browse-able. That is ¬†amazing feature that cloudflare is offering.

Cloudflare has 6 main features:

  • CDN
  • DNS
  • Optimization
  • Security
  • Analytics
  • Apps

I made the right choice and my load times on this website went from 5 seconds to 3 seconds. That is a huge difference. Now, you guys can browse my website faster. There should be zero hiccups. For everyone else is wondering if they should cloudflare? Get it, if it’s offered on your cpanel it’s just a click to install. If you don’t then just follow their steps at cloudflare and they will have it up within 24 hours.

Anyways, thanks for reading my quick rant about cloudflare.
