It's been awhile now since we made it easy for you to enable CloudFlare by Partenering with them and installing cloudflare into cPanel. All you need to do is use the icons in your cPanel to take advantage of the benefits that CloudFlare offers. If you aren’t using CloudFlare on your hosting account, here’s 4 reasons why you should:
1. Increase in Site Performance
2. Built-in Security
Security is a big focus here at WebhostingNZ. We do everything we can to ensure our servers and your site(s) are secure from a server standpoint, but most website defacement’s occur due vulnerabilities in the website code it self. We do have mod_security enabled to help with this but it does not catch everything. With CloudFlare, you’ll be protected against a range of threats: cross site scripting, SQL injection, comment spam, excessive bot crawling, email harvesters, and more. This is done automatically and will stop most attacks without the confusing configurations that are required with other security plugins and tools. Simply select your security level from High, Medium, Low and Essentially Off. CloudFlare will even learn about your site and traffic patterns and adjust its security on the fly.
3. Easy to Enable with WebhostingNZ
It’s really easy to install, so there’s no excuse not to enable CloudFlare. Simply log into your cPanel directly or via our Client Managment Area, click on the CloudFlare icon and follow the directions.
4. It’s free!
The basic service which will satisfy most websites costs NOTHING!
If you’re not using CloudFlare, we recommend that you give it a go. A faster site and a secure site helps with search engine rankings and really, your customers will have a much better experience on your website.
