CloudFlare Certified Hosting Provider
Municator has been accepted into the CloudFlare Certified Hosting Provider program.
If you haven’t heard about CloudFlare before, their value proposition is simple: they’ll make any website twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats.
CloudFlare powers more than 400 billion monthly page views – more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined – and over 1.2 billion monthly users regularly pass through their network.
Becoming a CloudFlare Certified Hosting Provider was deemed to be key strategic addition to Municator’s service offering. A number of primary challenges our customers’ websites face have been alleviated by our new partnership with CloudFlare. These include things like web application firewall (WAF) to comply with PCI requirements, a content delivery network (CDN) to support seasonal peaks in client traffic, or DDoS mitigation as part of a risk management plan, etc.
As traffic passes through the CloudFlare data centres, they intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on CloudFlare’s servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before they check to see if they’ve been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to the visitors, the overall performance of the website improves significantly.
CloudFlare’s intelligent caching system also means bandwidth is saved, which means saving money, and decreases the load on our 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 websites by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.
