101domain is proud to partner with Cloudflare in making the Internet a safer place. Cloudflare was founded on the idea of offering affordable and accessible security to every individual and organization on the Internet. During Cloudflare’s annual security week, they give us a look into their why – their how – and a preview of where they are headed. This year they announced some big changes we can’t wait to share with you.
1. Backup Certificates
In the future, Cloudflare will also issue backup certificates for certificates that Secure Web Accelerator Professional clients upload themselves, so they can have a backup they can rely on. Overall, backup certificates help ensure customers stay secure and online in an emergency.
2. WAF for everyone
Previously only available with Plus and Professional users, Cloudflare Managed Ruleset is now available to all Secure Web Accelerator plans on the new WAF engine. If you have Secure Web Accelerator, you are already receiving this protection. This ruleset provides mitigation rules for high-profile vulnerabilities such as Shellshock and Log4J and will be automatically updated whenever a relevant wide-ranging vulnerability is discovered.
To access the WAF user interface in the Cloudflare dashboard and a broader set of WAF rulesets and advanced WAF features, you will have to upgrade to Secure Web Accelerator Plus or Professional.
3. A New WAF Design
Changes to the WAF navigation include the following:
- Firewall is being renamed to Security.
- Under Security, you will now find WAF.
- Firewall rules, managed rules, and rate limiting rules will now appear under WAF.
All customers across all plans will now see the WAF products organized as below:

Security should never be an afterthought. The problem for many people and organizations is it’s difficult to gauge when you’ve “done enough” to protect yourself. Recent world events have brought cybersecurity to the forefront of many conversations. Not everyone is a security expert. We don’t expect you to be. That’s why we’ve partnered with Cloudflare to strengthen your cyber security posture and give you peace of mind knowing that you are doing exactly what you need to do to keep your website online and protect your data from being stolen or misused.
