What is CloudFlare & How to enable CloudFlare ?



Briefly, once you enable CloudFlare service you will get the following features:

  • Faster Browsing: At least twice the regular speed
  • Optimization for mobile: For faster browsing using smart phones
  • Distribution of the static site contents such as Images, JavaScript and CSS over more than 20 data centers around the world.
  • Decreased monthly used traffic by at least 60% as very least estimate.
  • Less requests by at least 50% to your own account (i.e. Process), and so serving more visitors with about 100% using your current hosting plan.
  • Protection against viruses, malicious crawlers, DoS attacks.
  • Your site always available on internet, with the “Always Online” service your pages are cached and served to your visitors during the server stopping intervals.
  • All these are offered completely free together with technical support for WebCare360 clients according to the partnership and cooperation agreement between WebCare360 and CloudFlare.

The list of domains will be displayed and in our example we will enable the service on www.webcare360.us only.

With this the service is now enabled on www.webcare360.us

Note: In case the visitor used webcare360.us without www no acceleration will be done to the connection and no activation for any of CloudFlare services will be done. To fix this issue you can apply the modification in “.htaccess” file (please review the explanation below).

Now we edit some settings, so we press “Statistics and Settings” then edit the settings as seen in the image:

How to redirect from domain.com to www.domain.com?

Open the “.htaccess” file that you can find in “public_html” folder

Insert at the beginning of the file the following code after changing the domain name to your own domain then save the file.

RewriteEngine On
# Rewrite added for CloudflareInstall – domain.com
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
