Improved Security and Faster Website Browsing with CloudFlare

October 10th, 2011

For the whole past year, I’ve been experiencing issues with my blog, which you’re just reading – It went from hack attacks and pharma hacks to downtimes.  As most site owners, I didn’t bother thinking about it, but two weeks ago I experienced a serious security threat, when net bot changed my .htaccess files. Only my front page was visible, with other pages getting 404 error. At that time, I started searching for a better hack proof solution and I think I finally found it. It’s called CloudFlare and it’s really awesome, at least for now. I use it for my blog (, as well as for, my commercial WordPress solution.

What is CloudFlare?

It is a service that does two things for your website: makes it faster and increases it security. This is achieved with a single change to DNS. Your website is instantly protected from a wide range of online threats and it loads much faster, since your content is dynamically optimized across the Internet. And best of all, CloudFlare’s core service is free.

It prevents spam bots and website attacks with flawless security tools. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through its intelligent global network system. It automatically optimizes the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance.
