Late last year we announced a partnership with CloudFlare, where we make it easy for you to enable CloudFlare on your account 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 GreenGeeks. We do everything to ensure our servers and customer sites are secure from a server standpoint, but most website defacement’s occur due vulnerabilities in the website code it self. 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.
Of the sites that are using CloudFlare with our web hosting, CloudFlare stopped over 200,000 threats in just one week.
3. Easy to Enable with GreenGeeks
It’s dead easy to install, so there’s no excuse not to enable CloudFlare. Here’s a video that Lawrence made that shows exactly how to enable CloudFlare on your GreenGeeks shared and reseller hosting accounts. For our VPS and Dedicated customers, simply contact our support by opening a ticket from within your GreenGeeks Account Manager. One of our technicians will install the Plugin for you.
4. It’s free!
The basic service which will satisfy most of our customers will cost nada, nothing, zilch! Need I say more?
If you’re not using CloudFlare, I strongly recommend that you do. 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.
Thanks for choosing to host green!
