When you host your site with MacHighway you get CloudFlare for FREE. CloudFlare does three things:
Once your website is set up with CloudFlare, it loads twice as fast and is protected from a broad range of online threats. Traffic is routed through their intelligent global network of 23 data centers (below). CloudFlare automatically optimizes the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance.
If your site gets an unexpected surge in visitors, for example, if your site is trending way up on Reddit, or your business is mentioned in a popular Salon.com article for the day, CloudFlare will handle that surge of visitors without an increase in cost, and your site will stay up, and come up fast.
They also block threats, updating their systems as new ones are discovered, as well as limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources.
The result: websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.
CloudFlare is included FREE with all MacHighway hosting packages. There is no commitment. Activating CloudFlare is “1 click easy” through your MacHighway control panel. Just login, look for the CloudFlare icon, choose the domain you want to enable, and click the orange cloud. That’s it!
It’s like having your own world wide website-delivery network and your own full-time security team, just like Google, Yahoo or Amazon.com have, for FREE.
