Cloudflare — What it is, how it works, and where to activate it.

Cloudflare acts as a proxy between your visitors and DreamHost's servers, caching content and filtering malicious traffic before it hits the server, improving your website's overall performance and security. Cloudflare is available to all DreamHost hosting plans. If you are an existing DreamHost customers, you can easily activate Cloudflare from your control panel.

  • Improved Site Performance

    The average website or blog will load nearly twice as fast when Cloudflare has been activated.

  • Bot and Threat Protection

    Identifies malicious threats online and stops the attacks before they ever get to your site.

  • Spam Comments Protection

    Uses data from its community and third party resources to reduce the number of spam comments on your site.

  • IPv6 Compatability

    Automatic IPv6 Gateway allows IPv4-only websites to support IPv6-only clients.

  • Site Always Online Mode

    Cloudflare serves visitors your pages from its cache, so when a server is down, visitors can still access your site.

  • New Site Analytics

    Cloudflare's system keeps statistics on each hit, and offers special insight into search engine crawlers and threats.

All of this can be enabled with any of our hosting plans!
