Cloudflare is a CDN (Content Delivery Network), and the Security Company. Here are some of the key benefits of using a cloudflare account.

  • Free CDN and handles high Traffic : One significant benefit of CloudFlare is free CDN. Cloudflare caches your static file (CSS, JS, Images) and serves it from the nearest location. 
  • Security : Cloudflare filters out most of the spam attacks at the Name-server level, and such requests don’t even hit your server. It protects your website from DDOS attack, SQL injection, comment spam. This provides a secure environment for your website.
  • Faster DNS. When you are using Cloudflare, you don’t have to wait for DNS propagation to happen.
  • HTTP/2 protocol : Newly introduced HTTP/2 protocol is two times faster than HTTP/1.1. HTTP/2 acceleration is by default enabled, so you don’t need to do any configuration.
  • Free SSL: Cloudflare offers a FREE universal SSL certificate.
  • Built-in Optimizations: Cloudflare comes with many optimizations like:

               Auto minify HTML/CSS/JavaScript

               Brotli compression

              Gzip

              Rocket Loader (for further optimizing JS)

              WebP and image optimization (paid plan only)

  • Firewall and Page rules can be set easily.
  • Cloudflare Polish : If you are having lots of images on your website, then Cloudflare Polish can help to optimize them to a smaller size for fast loading. You can either choose to compress lossless or lossy.
  • Save Bandwidth: Cloudflare filters out spam bots traffic, hence you save a lot on your bandwidth.
  • It protects your website from email harvesting
