— What it is, how it works, and where to activate it.
CloudFlare acts as a proxy between your visitors and F5 / MVH servers, caching content and filtering malicious traffic before it hits the server, improving your website’s overall performance and security. CloudFlare is included in all F5 / MVH hosting plans. If you are an existing F5 / MVH customer, you can easily activate CloudFlare from your control panel.
The average website or blog will load nearly twice as fast when CloudFlare has been activated.
Identifies malicious threats online and stops the attacks before they ever get to your site.
Uses data from its community and third party resources to reduce the number of spam comments on your site.
Warns visitors that have an infected computer that they should take action to rid the malware or virus.
CloudFlare serves visitors your pages from its cache, so when a server is down, visitors can still access your site.
CloudFlare’s system keeps statistics on each hit, and offers special insight into search engine crawlers and threats.
