Welcome to our CloudFlare overview! On this page, we will explain what CloudFlare is, its advantages, and how to activate it on our services.
What is CloudFlare?
CloudFlare is a free content delivery network service. It stores your static content across multiple servers worldwide. For example, if your website is hosted on one our Dallas servers, and one of your visitors is from Australia, they will see the content from CloudFlare’s Australian location. It makes the static content of your website load quickly no matter where your visitors come from.
Why should I use CloudFlare?
Not only does CloudFlare speed up access to your website, it can also help reduce resource usage! Because the static content is loaded from CloudFlare servers, and not the one your website is actually hosted on, people visiting your website will not have as much impact on your resource usage. Your mileage may of course vary, depending on your website coding.

How can I access my direct website without going through CloudFlare?
You may want to access your site directly if you’re making changes to your website and want to see the changes instantly. Because CloudFlare caches your static content, your changes may not appear on your main website right away. You can visit our quick guide on accessing your direct website HERE
