Starting a website does not mean that you’ll just let it good and running. Similar to a house, one should also take action about its performance and security. Fortunately, there is a free security service around that anyone can get an account.
CloudFlare, a unique service which has a wide range of team on its back. People who are professionals on security and performance. If what you want is a simple security for your website, CloudFlare can provide it. Also, if a whole website security and at its fullest is what you prefer – they can also implement it without a problem.
It allows you to add multiple domains on the dashboard on their website which allows you to manage each of it. Some of the options that they offer are:
- Page Rules
- Scrape Shield
and a whole lot of stuff which can be activated for free or with a monthly subscription. Don’t worry, most of the settings that you need are available for free.
They offer 4 types of plan – Free, Pro, Business, and the Enterprise which prices varies. If you’re just a simple blogger like me, then the free plan fits you. The other plans are only recommended if you have a big website running, like if you own CNN.com – then you might want to subscribe to their enterprise plan.
Starting an account on CloudFlare is easy. Just fill up the forms that they provide and confirm any information provided and you’re good to go. You can now add your website on your dashboard there and start managing it with the services they’re offering.
After turning on the options that you want to be integrated for your website, you can now observe your website’s performance and security being boosted. Just make sure that you know what you’re doing so you won’t encounter any problems.
