Performance

Globally-distributed content delivery network (CDN)

CloudFlare data centers are all over the globe so your site loads fast for all your visitors, no matter where they are.

   

Automatic static content caching

Using a CDN-like infrastructure to cache static content, CloudFlare saves you CPU and bandwidth resources.

IPv6 Support

Future-proofed gateway to support IPv4 and IPv6 connections regardless of your existing infrastructure.

Always Online™

Keeps the static portions of your site online even if your server goes down.

Image Optimization

Tracks the actual size of images as they are rendered in the browser and down-samples files to never transmit more bytes than are needed.

Automatic Image Resizing

Resize images for optimal display and quick delivery tailored to screen size of your visitor’s device. Especially effective for speeding up mobile browsing.

Standard Security

Reputation-based threat protection

Block traffic by country or IP range

Ability to stop a range of IPs from accessing your site.

Teach infected human visitors to your site how to clean up their machine

To stop the rise of threats online we have to tell people when their computers are infected. By joining CloudFlare, you help to educate infected human visitors that they need to take action.

Deploy collective intelligence of the CloudFlare community to identify new threats

The CloudFlare system gets smarter as more sites join.

Advanced Security

SSL Support

If you already have SSL on your site, CloudFlare is compatible without you needing to change your current configuration.

Analytics and Control

Statistics for all the traffic to your site (threats, search engine crawlers and visitors)

You have good tools to evaluate human traffic coming to your site, but no insight into search engine crawlers and threats. With CloudFlare, now you do.

Page Rules™
