What do the websites for a Fortune 500 Company and Mike’s Home Improvements have in common? They both use Cloudflare, a website performance and security platform. Although Cloudflare has paid subscription plans, the free version still includes many of the robust features used by large companies to optimize and secure their website. One of the most valuable features of Cloudflare is its ability to mitigate Denial of Service Attacks, which is when malicious actors flood a website with fake visitors in order to make it inaccessible. With a handy “Under Attack Mode,” Cloudflare can reroute malicious visitors and keep your website humming.
Another great feature of Cloudflare is its ability to optimize website loading times by helping to cache content. As the amount and variety of media hosted by websites continue to grow, so does the strain on serving that content quickly. Cloudflare can cache the website by storing temporary files of your website, including hefty video files and deliver in a more timely manner to users. With such a robust offering of free solutions, Digital Strategy Associates recommends using it on every website we design and manage.
