Cloudflare is a 3rd party service that adds extra security and benefits to your website. Hostek has partnered with Cloudflare to offer customers the benefits of Cloudflare. When you enable Cloudflare for your website, the website traffic is routed through Cloudflare’s intelligent global network.
Some of the benefits of having your site behind Cloudflare include:
Site load speed
CDN - Distribute your content around the world so it’s closer to your visitors
Cache - When resources on your site are cached on Cloudflare’s data centers, it allows us to send those resources to your visitors from a location closest to them
DDOS protection - When your website is behind Cloudflare, the DDOS attacks hit the Cloudflare servers instead of your website, allowing your website to remain online during the attack
Protection from SQL injection, spammers, and other online threats
