CloudFlare makes your site faster
CloudFlare operates out of 43 data centers around the world. Our CDN automatically caches your static files at our edge nodes so these files are stored closer to your visitors while delivering your dynamic content directly from your web server. CloudFlare then uses a technology called Anycast to route your visitors to the nearest data center. The result is that your website, on average, loads twice as fast for your visitors regardless of where they are located.
On average, a website on CloudFlare loads twice as fast for its visitors, sees 65% fewer requests and saves 60% of bandwidth. You’ll be able to see the exact speed benefits and savings with your personalized analytics report for your site.
We never charge for bandwidth
CloudFlare will never bill you for bandwidth usage. We believe if your site suddenly gets popular or suffers an attack, you shouldn't have to dread your bandwidth bill. CloudFlare charges a flat rate per plan, which is based on functionality.
No configuration necessary
You do not have to spend time designating which files to cache. CloudFlare’s technology builds the cache for you based on your traffic and what objects on your site are safe to serve from the edge.
Works with static and dynamic content
Page Rules provide you with fine-grained control of CloudFlare on each page of your site. You can enable full HTML caching, individually customize CloudFlare’s features on a page by page basis or enable edge network forwarding to improve page delivery even further.
If your server ever goes offline, CloudFlare will serve a limited copy of your cached website to keep it online for your visitors. CloudFlare builds the Always Online™ version of your website, so your most popular pages are represented.
Protect against traffic surges
If you get a surge in traffic, CloudFlare’s CDN will absorb the effect so your server stays online. On average, you'll see 65% fewer requests to your servers and save 60% of your bandwidth, even with CloudFlare's free plan.
