4 best practices to protect your website

Protect your account with two-factor authentication (2FA)

Requiring a second piece of information to validate your identity when logging in prevents unauthorized users from accessing sensitive data on your account.

Enable 2FA

Orange cloud your DNS records

When you orange cloud a DNS record, Cloudflare acts as a proxy for your domain. This shields your origin web server from unexpected traffic spikes and cyber attacks.

Enable orange cloud

Use SSL encryption to protect your internal data

Secure Sockets Layer is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. With Cloudflare, your site can become HTTPS-enabled with the click of a button.

Turn your web application firewall on

WAFs act as a shield between a web application and the Internet, giving you the ability to decide whether to allow incoming and outgoing traffic to pass through. WAFs protect against SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting, and cross-site forgery.
