Benefits of Cloudflare :

1. Increase in Site Performance

CloudFlare provides an increase in website performance through their global CDN (Content Delivery Network). When enabled, the CDN will automatically cache your static files (JavaScript, CSS, Images, etc.) on their servers located across strategic data centers around the world. When a visitor visits your website , CloudFlare’s Anycast technology will load those static files from a server located nearest to the visitor and your dynamic content will load from our servers. This results in faster load times due to decreased latency between server and visitor. Through feedback from many users, I’ve seen increases of 50% or more on site performance when CloudFlare is enabled.

2. Built-in Security

Security is a big focus here for any webmaster. They do everything to ensure their servers and sites are secure from a server standpoint, but most website defacement occur due vulnerabilities in the website code it self.  With CloudFlare, you’ll be protected against a range of threats: cross site scripting, SQL injection,DDoS, comment spam, excessive bot crawling, email harvesters, and more. This is done automatically and will stop most attacks without the confusing configurations that are required with other security plugins and tools. Simply select your security level from HighMediumLow and Essentially Off. CloudFlare will even learn about your site and traffic patterns and adjust its security on the fly.

Of the sites that are using CloudFlare with our web hosting, CloudFlare stopped over 200,000 threats in just one week.

4.Offline Browsing Mode

In the event that your server is unavailable, visitors should still be able to access your site since CloudFlare serves the visitor a page from its cache.

5.New Site Stats

CloudFlare gives you insight into search engine crawlers and threats.

6.Alerting Visitors of Infected Computers

CloudFlare alerts human visitors that have an infected computer that they need to take action to clean up the malware or virus on their machine. The visitor can enter a CAPTCHA to gain access to your site.

7. It’s free!

The basic service which will satisfy most of our customers will cost nada, nothing, zilch!Need I say more?

If you’re not using CloudFlare yet, I strongly recommend that you do. A faster site and a secure site helps with search engine rankings and really, your customers will have a much better experience on your website.
