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 Clue WebHost! 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.

Today, hundreds of thousands of websites—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments—use CloudFlare to make their sites faster and more secure. We power more than 65 billion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through our network.

Faster web performance

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

We run 23 data centers  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 a 700% increase in the number of distributed denial of service attacks  (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 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 Clue WebHost, we make the process of setting up CloudFlare “1 click easy” through your existing Clue WebHost 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 Clue WebHost 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 . 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 Clue WebHost, but the next step is to join the CloudFlare community.

6 Reasons Why Your Business Must Have a Blog

Before now, having a website was hailed as a very good strategy for establishing an online presence for your business. And truly, that was the case. In fact, it’s still the case now; a website will place your business on the web. But expect nothing more.

But now, creating awareness for your products and services over the internet requires more than just having a website.

I can guess what’s on your mind. You’re thinking, “What are you saying? Do you mean I’ve not done enough after spending lots of money on the design and contentof my website?”

Well, the answer is YES. You’ve not done enough – considering the way marketing is done online as of present.

So, what is that thing you should add to your online marketing efforts? It’s a BLOG.

You may have heard about blogging several times, but it’s high time you get started. Having a blog is necessary for every business that aims at attracting clients online.

Now, I’ll give you six reasons why you should create a blog for your business:

1. Blogging shows your expertise

Your website visitors cannot understand how deeply knowledgeable you are about your products and services by merely reading your “About us” or “Products and services” pages.

Rather, to demonstrate your expertise you need to show it through your blog posts. You need to offer relevant and helpful information about your business (to your prospects and customers). This information must answer their questions and solve their problems.

In addition, the information must be offered free and on a frequent basis. A blog is the best avenue for this.

2. Blogging helps you build trust

Today, blatantly advertising your products and services no longer builds trust. In fact, it only repels prospects – no thanks to the zillions of scam stories they’ve read.

When you offer valuable information frequently, your prospects will trust your business and regard you as an authority in your field. And when this happens, they’ll do business with you, even when you you’ve not promoted your business blatantly.

So, only a blog can prove your business’s credibility and show that it’s not a scam.

3. Blogging helps you build relationships with your customers

Because a blog allows readers to share their thoughts in the comments section, you can communicate better with your prospects and customers.

By running a blog, you’ll get comments, suggestions, opinions, questions, and so on about your business from your audience. These can help you make better decisions regarding your business and engage more with your prospects and customers.

4. Blogging is a very good avenue for advertising

While it’s not a good idea to lace your blog with intrusive and annoying ads, it doesn’t hurt to promote your products or services in a subtle way.

Of course, if your prospects don’t know what you offer, they won’t do business with you. So, you’ll have to let them know about your business through some subtle advertising. But there’s a caveat: this should come only after you’ve offered them lots of valuable content.

5. A blog attracts more search engine traffic

Because blogs are updated often and the number of pages increases steadily, they tend to rank higher in Google and other search engines. This is because search engines love websites that have many pages and are updated frequently.

So, if you run a blog, you’ll attract more prospects through search engines.

6. A blog costs much less to maintain

With blogging platforms such as Wordpress and Blogger, you can easily update and manage your blog even if you’re a dummy when it comes to website design.

You won’t have to call an expert every time you want to add new content or make other changes – because virtually everything about blogging is simplified.

I hope you’re now convinced that your business really needs a blog. Now, another interesting fact is that a blog can stand on its own. I mean, you can have a blog and still use it as your business website. So, you don’t have to set them up differently.

Start a blog today, and you’ll attract more prospects and retain more customers. To get started, click here for more information.
