MacHighway + CloudFlare = Greater Speed & Security for Your MacHighway Hosted Site

Written by Chris Graves on February 17, 2014

MacHighway is happy to announce our new partnership with CloudFlare.

CloudFlare does two things: it accelerates your website, and protects it from hackers. Once your website is set up with CloudFlare, it loads twice as fast and is protected from a broad range of online threats. MacHighway is a certified CloudFlare Partner.

CloudFlare protects and accelerates your website.

Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through their intelligent global network (below). CloudFlare automatically optimizes the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. They also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.

CloudFlare is included FREE with all MacHighway hosting packages. It’s in your cPanel, waiting for you to activate it. There is no commitment. Activating CloudFlare is “1 click easy” through your cPanel – just look for the CloudFlare icon, choose the domain you want to enable, and click the orange cloud. That’s it!

The end result is your site is more secure, and twice as fast.

Again, CloudFlare, as offered through MacHighway, is FREE. For site owners who would like to take advantage of CloudFlare’s advanced offerings, they 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 support for SSL, a full web application firewall, and faster analytics.
