How CloudFlare increases speed and security of
your site

This is a
guest post written and contributed by CloudFlare.  CloudFlare makes it
easy for any site to be as fast and secure as the Internet giants.

CloudFlare, a web performance and security
company, is excited to announce our partnership with Ultimate SEO! If you haven’t heard about
CloudFlare before, our value proposition is simple: we’ll make any website
twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats.

We power more than 400 billion monthly page views – more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined – and over 1.2 billion monthly users regularly pass through our network. We’re really glad Ultimate SEO has partnered with CloudFlare.
Faster web performance

CloudFlare is designed to take a great hosting
platform like Ultimate SEO and make it even better.

We run data centers [link to http://www.cloudflare.com/network-map] strategically located around the world. When you sign up for CloudFlare, we begin routing your traffic to the nearest data center.

As your
traffic passes through the data centers, we 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 we
check 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
700% increase in the number of
distributed denial of service attacks
 [link to http://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 our approach is that the system
gets smarter the more sites that are part of the CloudFlare community. We
analyze the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time
and adapt the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad
traffic is stopped.

In time,
our goal is nothing short of making attacks against websites a relic of
history. And, given our scale and the billions of different attacks we see and
adapt to every year, we’re well on our way to achieving that for sites on the
CloudFlare network.

Signing up

Any website can deploy CloudFlare, regardless
of your underlying platform. By integrating closely with Ultimate SEO, we make the process of
setting up CloudFlare “1 click easy” through your existing Ultimate SEO cPanel dashboard.
Just look for the CloudFlare icon, choose the domain you want to enable, and
click the orange cloud. That’s it!

We’ve kept the price as low as possible and
plans offered through Ultimate SEO are free. Moreover, we never charge you for bandwidth or
storage, therefore saving you tons via reduced bandwidth costs.

For site owners who would like to take
advantage of CloudFlare’s advanced offerings, we also offer a ‘Pro’
tier of service for $20/month
 [link to http://www.cloudflare.com/plans]. The ‘Pro’ tier includes all of the ‘Free’ tier’s offerings, as
well as extra features like SSL, full web application firewall and faster
analytics.

We’re proud that every day more than a thousand
new sites, including some of the largest on the web, join the CloudFlare
community. If you’re looking for a faster, safer website, you’ve got a good
start with Ultimate SEO, but the next step is to join the
CloudFlare community
