I bought this Domain from Ohodomain. The process of buying domains was too easy, but managing the CNAME A and sub-domain entries was a headache. While I wanted to add a sub-domain I couldn’t identify what should be its IP address. And modifying, changing that CNAME, A, and subdomains are not many users friendly.
Even more than that I need to pay for getting an SSL certificate. Well, then I started to look for ways to make my site secure and use HTTPS instead of HTTP Protocol. Then I found Cloudflare. My friend Rabindra suggested me to try it. I did it and then I never looked back.
Cloudflare, Inc. is a U.S. company that provides a content delivery network, Internet security services, and distributed domain name server services, sitting between the visitor and the Cloudflare user’s hosting provider, acting as a reverse proxy for websites.
The main reason for me choosing Cloudflare was that I got an opportunity to switch to HTTPS from HTTP with just a single click. 🙂
And the interface is so much easier. After you add your site to Cloudflare and it will collect all DNS entries.
And it not only manages your DNS entries but at the same time you can get a bunch of features like Analytics, Crypto, Firewall, Speed, Page rules, Network, Traffic, Customization, Apps and Scrape Shield.
For small or personal blogs and sites, you don’t need to pay. If you are a company and want the real-time network security on your products, be it a mobile app, app hosted over the cloud or any e-commerce site. There are plans where you can choose any affordable plans.
Cloudflare also handles huge DDOS Attacks even you will get it on a scale of Gigabytes. It has its data center on 100 cities of the world. So you will be getting high-speed service for protecting your data online.
It will be a long blog post to write each feature that is provided by Cloudflare. And I don’t want to copy paste all of it all again like I generally do for the definitions of any word from Wikipedia.
So signup today and thank me later.
