Why and How to Use CloudFlare?

When I first checked Cloudflare, I thought, what the heck is this?
 
My website always loads fine.
 
I found out that CloudFlare cleaned the attempt from malicious attacks and only let clean traffic come to our site, So I started using Cloudflare to get rid of spam visits and unwanted bots.
 
That's why I started using Cloudflare. This is a free service, and I recommend it to all EASKME readers.

If you do not know what Cloudflare is, this article is for you. You need not have any technical knowledge to set up an account with Cloudflare.

What is Cloudflare, and how does it work?

Let's see this example. EASKME.com is hosted on a web server with I.P "1.1.1.1". So when you type EASKME.com in the browser, the browser sends a DNS request and gets the result "1.1.1.1", and you can access the site.
 
In CloudFlare, you add Cloudflare Name-server to the domain.

Then, Cloudflare starts filtering all the requests coming to your website. Cloudflare blocks any illegal access or spam and protects your site.
 
Cloudflare does not change anything on your website.

It just filters the traffic coming to your site.

So I recommend everyone to use Cloudflare on site. It offers both free and premium plans.

Benefits of Cloudflare:

It stops hacking attempts and Brute-force attacks:

Cloudflare system works at the Name-server level and filters out spam attacks.

It protects your blog or website from comment spam, SQL injection, DDOS attack. So this is good for security for your site.
 
You need to set security at a low level to access the site to ensure that visitors can access the site worldwide.

No need to wait for DNS propagation:

When you use Cloudflare, you need not wait for DNS propagation.

Instead, you just need to change the I.P address of the server from Dashboard, and your domain name will start pointing to a new host.

Free CDN:

This is one of the major benefits of using CloudFlare.

It is very easy to integrate. Cloudflare CDN will increase the performance of your website or blog by almost 50% and make your site load faster.

Save bandwidth:

If you are using some hosting plan which works on hits, then you should work to save your site from spammy hits.

For example, Cloudflare filters out spam bots traffic and saves a lot of bandwidth.
 
Cloudflare also offers RocketLoader, which Automatically asynchronously load all JavaScript resources and protect the site from Email harvesting. CloudFlare also offers free SSL (Https).

Important things when using CloudFlare:

When you change the theme of your site, then purge Cloudflare cache under settings and enable Development mode.

If you are a WordPress user, you can use Sunny's plugin to purge.
 
I recommend everyone to use Cloudflare as it provides security and saves bandwidth.

I am using a free plan.
