  • What is CloudFlare?

    Hello Webmasters!

    I am always seeing CloudFlare checks whenever I visit websites. It seems like almost all of the websites have it now. What does it really do for your website? Does it make it faster? Does it make it more secure because of those checks?

    I would also like to know what it helps defend against.

    Thanks!

    CloudFlare is a content delivery network (CDN). A CDN is a distributed network of servers that provides several advantages for a web site: ... CloudFlare's CDN can also provide some protection against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

          you totally captured the whole essence of having a cloudflare network on a site and I think serious sites owners should have it installed to keep hackers and spammers especially spam comments away from their site even trolls would have a hard time trolling.

              Yea,thanks I know most serious sites are aware of this and have installed it on their sites.I really dislikes DDOS attacks especially when launched by scammers and fraudsters on a site and I believe the site should still be up and cloud flare just help out.

                The DDoS protection ensures that there are not a lot of connection requests coming from the same place. If there were, it would ignore them so that they didn't hinder the operation of the site. Thats the idea behind it at least. Having used cloudflare on a site before, it didn't necessarily always work as advertised

                  A CDN is a network of servers located around the world that deliver cached copies of websites from locations that are closest to the user. As the servers are closer to the user and the website copies are cached, websites load faster as a result. CDNs such as CloudFlare also help prevent against DDOS attacks. This is done by forcing suspicious visitors to enter a manual captcha before accessing the website. Thereby eliminating bots. This also means your server resources are not wasted on bots. To set up CloudFlare CDN in WordPress, you can use the official CloudFlare plugin.

                    During the World Cup, a game between them was beyond the realm Today Match Prediction of imagination as the match was washed out because of downpour. In this manner, it is a great open door for both these sides from the subcontinent to show their predominance.
