CloudFlare CDN Setup
CloudFlare is a CDN (Content Delivery Network) to distribute your content around the world so it’s closer to your visitors (speeding up your site) that operates out of 23 data centers around the world.
CloudFlare security service also protects your site from comment spam and excessive bot crawling to malicious attacks like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks. CloudFlare provides security protection against all of these types of threats and more to keep your website safe.
For this service we will:
- Set your site to maintenance mode
- Register a CouldFlare account using your email address and info
- Add your domain’s DNS records to CloudFlare
- Change your domain name’s DNS server settings to CloudFlare from your domain registrar’s panel
- Wait until new domain DNS records propagate across the Internet
- Install CloudFlare module for your Apache Server or set Nginx Server settings to so it will recognize real user IP instead of CloudFlare IP address.
- If we don’t have access to the web server settings, then we will install CloudFlare plugin for WordPress so it will get the original IP address from visitors commenting on your site and the ability to activate Development Mode (turn off CloudFlare cache for making web design changes to CSS, JS files) from within the plugin
- Ensure the site is functioning properly
- The new domain DNS server setting propagation will usually take from 2 to 3 hours, but may take up to 24 hours.
