Cloudflare® is not just an amazing tool to enhance the performance of your website and accelerate the overall speed; most importantly, it will improve your users’ experience.

What is Cloudflare®?

When talking about website speed and security, Cloudflare always comes up for discussion. For a good reason. But let’s start with the basics. Cloudflare was created in 2009 by former members of Project Honey Pot, was an initiative created to combat email spam and fraud. The open-source architecture allowed websites to collect information. A year later, Project Honey Pot paved the way for an even greater resource that could track and ultimately stop the malicious behavior of cybercrime. This new iteration was called Cloudflare. Since then, Cloudflare has become one of the world’s largest cloud network platforms dedicated to making websites fast, secure, and, last but not least, extremely reliable.

Cloudflare is a content delivery network (CDN), which describes a system of distributed servers. It works as a reverse proxy provider so your website becomes part of their network. The service optimizes web content delivery by storing content on its servers. There’s a variety of CDNs available, but Cloudflare is still the most popular. But how does it actually work, and why do over 16 million websites trust the market leader?

How does Cloudflare work?

Let’s be honest; no one wants to wait on a webpage to load. A delay can cause a user to leave the website before it even finishes loading. Here is where Cloudflare comes into play.

A CDN’s purpose is to shorten the loading time. As a CDN, it caches the customer’s website and any static resources and then spreads it across a network of servers (caching is the ability to store data). This cached content is delivered to visitors depending on their location to ensure the best page load speeds and lower bandwidth usage. All this ensures the least amount of distance between a visitor and a website – which makes everyone happy.

By operating between the customer and the hosting server, Cloudflare offers a high level of security and encryption. It can detect malicious traffic, intercept DDoS attacks, prevent spam, remove bot activity, and deflect bot attacks. Also, the image optimization feature reduces file sizes and optimizes image display for mobile devices, which also makes your website super fast for customers on the go.
