CloudFlare is a website acceleration and security service provided to NextGen Web Hosting clients through our partnership with CloudFlare. By using advanced technology within a global network powered by fourteen datacenters, CloudFlare makes sites faster and more secure while using less system resources to do so.
NextGen clients can quickly and easily take advantage of CloudFlare’s services through an easy-to-use CloudFlare page in their cPanel account.
For more information on CloudFlare, and NextGen’s partnership with them, take a look at the following frequently asked questions:
Where are CloudFlare’s data centers located?
CloudFlare’s network currently has 14 locations where it does caching and traffic filtering. You can see the locations and status of our datacenters at their website.
What types of websites can use CloudFlare?
Almost all websites can use CloudFlare. CloudFlare works for both static and dynamic websites. CloudFlare is not suitable for websites that stream video or audio directly from their origin server. If a website uses YouTube or Vimeo for the videos embedded on your website, then that is compatible with CloudFlare.
Is CloudFlare compatible with a website with SSL?
Websites which use SSL can use CloudFlare; however, there is an extra step. If the SSL is on its own sub-domain (i.e. SSL), then ensure that this sub-domain is marked with a gray cloud. If the SSL is on www, then you will have to upgrade to a paid service from CloudFlare (either Basic or Pro) and follow the directions here.
