Cloudflare Partnership since 2013

Cloudflare Optimized Partner since 2013!

Did you know that we are in partnership with Cloudflare, the website performance and security company, since 2013. Actually we were one of the first to be, and probably the first in Mauritius as well !

Cloudflare is a content delivery network (CDN) that increases the performance and security of every website on its network, protecting from a broad range of threats and attacks. Over 7,000,000 websites run on the Cloudflare network—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments. Cloudflare powers almost a trillion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through our network.

Cloudflare increases the speed and security of your website

Cloudflare makes it easy for any site to be as fast and secure as the Internet giants.

Faster web performance

Cloudflare was designed to take a hosting platform like ours and make it more fast, secure, and reliable.

Cloudflare runs more than 151 data centers http://www.cloudflare.com/network-map strategically located around the world. When you sign up for Cloudflare, we begin routing traffic to the nearest data center.

As your traffic passes through the data centers, we intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on our servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before we check to see if they’ve been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to your visitors, the overall performance of your site improves significantly.

Cloudflare’s intelligent caching system also means you save bandwidth, which means saving money, and decreases the load on your servers, which means your web application will run faster and more efficiently than ever. On average, Cloudflare customers see a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage, and a 65% in total requests to their servers. The overall effect is that Cloudflare will typically cut the load time for pages on your site by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.

Now in Mauritius

Port Louis (Mauritius), which used to be served out of our Mombasa data center, will see the latency-equivalent of 1,500 miles shaved off on every web request.

Our strategic partnership with Cloudlare now allows our local visitors to access websites hosted with us faster than ever, with local connection performance

Broad web security

At the beginning of 2016, Cloudflare experienced and mitigated against some of the largest distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks ever seen. https://blog.cloudflare.com/a-winter-of-400gbps-weekend-ddos-attacks/ As attacks like these increase, Cloudflare is stepping up to protect websites.

Cloudflare’s security protections offer a broad range of protections http://www.cloudflare.com/features-security against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or spam submitted to a blog or comment form. What is powerful about our approach is that the system gets smarter the more sites that are part of the Cloudflare community. We analyze the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and adapt the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.

In time, our goal is nothing short of making attacks against websites a relic of history. And, given our scale and the billions of different attacks we see and adapt to every year, we’re well on our way to achieving that for sites on the Cloudflare network.

Signing up

Any website can deploy Cloudflare, regardless of your underlying platform. By integrating closely with our servers, we make the process of setting up Cloudflare “1 click” through your existing CPanel dashboard. Just look for the Cloudflare icon, choose the domain you want to enable, and click the orange cloud.

We’ve kept the price as low as possible, and plans offered through all our hosting plans offer Cloudflare for free!. Moreover, we never charge you for bandwidth or storage, therefore saving you tons via reduced bandwidth costs.

For site owners who would like to take advantage of Cloudflare’s advanced offerings, we also offer a ‘Pro’ tier of service for MUR 800 + VAT/month http://www.cloudflare.com/plans. The ‘Pro’ tier includes all of the ‘Free’ tier’s offerings, as well as extra features like a image optimization, mobile acceleration, basic web application firewall (WAF), and 3 page rules.

We’re proud that every day more than a thousand new sites, including some of the largest on the web, join the Cloudflare community. If you’re looking for a faster, safer website, you’ve got a good start with us!
