CloudFlare, a web performance and security company, has announced their partnership with Webkul Software Pvt Ltd ! If you haven’t heard about CloudFlare before, their value proposition is simple: they will make any website twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats.
Today, hundreds of thousands of websites—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments—use CloudFlare to make their sites faster and more secure. They have more than 65 billion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through their network.
Faster web performance
CloudFlare is designed to take a great hosting platform like ‘cloudkul’ and make it even better.
They run 77 data centers [link to http://www.cloudflare.com/network-map] strategically located around the world. When you sign up for CloudFlare, routing your traffic to the nearest data center will be started.
As your traffic passes through the data centers, it will intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on our servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before it checks to see if they’ve been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to your visitors, the overall performance of your site improves significantly.
CloudFlare’s intelligent caching system also means you save bandwidth, which means saving money, and decreases the load on your servers, which means your web application will run faster and more efficiently than ever. On average, CloudFlare customers see a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage, and a 65% in total requests to their servers. The overall effect is that CloudFlare will typically cut the load time for pages on your site by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.
Broad web security
Over the course of 2011, CloudFlare identified a 700% increase in the number of distributed denial of service attacks [link to https://blog.cloudflare.com/2011-the-year-of-the-ddos] (DDoS) we track on the Internet (see the chart below). As attacks like these increase, CloudFlare is stepping up to protect sites.
CloudFlare’s security protections offer a broad range of protections [link to http://www.cloudflare.com/features-security] against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or spam submitted to a blog or comment form. What is powerful about their approach is that the system gets smarter the more sites that are part of the CloudFlare community. It analyzes the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and adapts the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.
So if you are also looking forward to secure your sites and make them even more faster, cloudkul team is here to do it for you with the help of cloudflare!
