• CloudFlare is here!

    December 26, 2013 by Support Staff
  • We’re excited to announce that CloudFlare integration is now rolling out across all our servers! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have heard about the waves that CloudFlare are making. They’re the cloud CDN (Content Distribution Network) and security service that’s protecting hundreds of thousands of websites of all sizes from attacks and providing global increases in speed and security. CloudFlare works by providing a worldwide network of servers that visitors to your site connect to, which complement our own global network of locations to ensure that your site is always performing its best.

    The CloudFlare servers cache website content, so that static content (eg most images, JavaScript, CSS) is served immediately. At the same time as serving the static content to your users, they communicate with the hosting server to fetch dynamic content. The net result is that your page loads much faster for end users. They also provide an additional layer of security from a wide range of threats, so that malicious traffic never even gets as far as the hosting server.

    We’re currently rolling out integration between our servers and CloudFlare. This integration means that enabling CloudFlare on your website requires just a couple of clicks, without leaving your control panel or messing around with changing nameservers or DNS. Just log into cPanel or and look for the CloudFlare icon – the instructions will guide you through the process. If the icon’s not there yet, don’t worry – we’ll get to your server soon.


    For a full walkthrough of the setup, check out our Knowledge Base article on how to set up CloudFlare. And, if you require any assistance, just submit a ticket and we’ll be happy to help.
