CloudFlare

CloudFlare works on the network level. All you need to do is change your domain's nameservers, and it does the rest. CloudFlare supercharges your website's speed, performance and security – and many of the features offered are absolutely free to use. With all the great benefits which CloudFlare offers, we believe this service will be extremely beneficial to our customers, so we've included this extraordinary content delivery service in the cPanel control panel. All of our Linux shared hosting customers can take advantage of CloudFlare right now by simply enabling it in their control panel.

What are the advantages and benefits in using CloudFlare?

While all server-side applications continue to be run directly from our servers – because all traffic first goes through CloudFlare's network – it is able to offer increased security, speed and performance which will noticeable to both you and your visitors.

We've all heard of content delivery networks (CDNs), but just what are they? A content delivery network consists of a complex set of servers deployed across multiple data centres which are, as the name implies, used to deliver content on the Internet in a very efficient, performant and redundant manner.

If you use the jQuery library on your website and use the Google, Microsoft or MediaTemple CDN, you and your visitors are already benefiting from increased performance and reduced bandwidth overhead in doing so. CDNs deliver content from a data centre which is as close to the visitor as possible, so the jQuery library will be delivered to your visitor from the closest possible data centre. Even better still, if your visitor has already accessed another site using the same CDN, the visitor will already have a local copy which isn't re-downloaded — reducing the amount of requests the browser needs to make.

CloudFlare is also a content delivery network, but it goes much further. CloudFlare works on the network level and helps to speed up your website by storing copies of your site's static content and delivering this to your visitors through its distributed delivery network spanning 23 data centres worldwide. CloudFlare has 11 delivery points in the United States, 8 in Europe, 4 in Asia and 1 in the Oceania region.

Because CloudFlare can, at your choice, serve static content through its CDN — you can optionally choose for CloudFlare to also optimise the content it stores. CloudFlare can minify HTML, JavaScript and CSS code and can cache static content on its network for a set period of time which can help fully maximise your site's performance and speed.

eUKhost is pleased to have partnered with CloudFlare to integrate this service directly into our cPanel shared hosting plans. Our cPanel shared hosting customers can take advantage of what CloudFlare has to offer for free by simply enabling it within their control panel.

It's worth noting all of your server-side applications continue to be handled by our servers.
