2 million fans
Over 2 million websites use CloudFlare, amounting every month to more traffic than Amazon, Wikipedia, Apple, Bing and eBay combined. It speeds up and protects sites some of the largest global brands, so your website will be in very safe and capable hands.
Speed on tap
CloudFlare is essentially bubble wrap for online business. It's been developed to protect your website against comment spam, content theft, email harvesting and DDoS attacks. As CloudFlare examines the traffic visiting your site, it automatically starts to learn and detect new threats at the edge before they even hit your site. What's more, you can easily select different levels of security, without any complex settings.
CloudFlare's Always Online service keeps a cached copy of your website, so it's always available, even if your server goes offline. Its analytics, meanwhile, breaks down your website's visitors into bots, threats, and regular traffic, so you have insight into how at-risk your website is.
The Reddit effect
CloudFlare can boost any website's performance, but sites that experience seasonal or occasional spikes in traffic — like florists on Valentine's Day — or sites that go viral, will particularly benefit. WordPress blogs or websites that have had a history of security breaches, and sites at risk of being targeted by DDoS attacks, will also reap the benefits of CloudFlare. And there are no billing surprises as CloudFlare never charges for bandwidth.
