More – Optimize Your Website

CloudFlare.comCloudFlare offers a series of optimization services that can be applied by any webmaster who want to bring his site into a whole new league. Any site that is enhanced using CloudFlare will load faster and perform better overall for the simple reason that sites which are optimized using CloudFlare become part of the “CloudFlare Community”.

Being part of this community ensures that all the traffic the site is to receive will be routed through the company’s intelligent global network. This means that threats to the site’s safety are considerably reduced, and that attacks by abusive bots are minimized.

In practice, this translates into the (valuable) fact that your site’s resources and servers won’t be squandered by people who are just not interested in your content, and who just want to take advantage from your site’s PR and popularity.

As a service, CloudFlare is usable by just any person who has his own website and his own domain. A free plan is provided for users to get into the swing of things, and if they like what they see they can go for either the “Pro” or “Enterprise” plan.
