The Cloudflare China Network

Give your users in China a fast, secure online experience.

Ensuring performance, reliability and security for websites operating in China can be challenging for many global organizations. Cloudflare and our strategic partners in China have created a global network that offers a fast experience for visitors inside and outside of China — with DDoS mitigation, web application firewall (WAF), and Zero Trust security services built in.

Get started with the Cloudflare China Network

How the Cloudflare China Network works

China’s Internet architecture differs from the rest of the world. Users within China accessing content from data centers outside China may experience congestion and packet loss leading to a poor user experience.

To optimize delivery of content throughout China, it’s important to have geographically dispersed data centers across China, and connectivity to the major ISPs in each region. This is what the Cloudflare China Network provides. We've partnered with JD Cloud to grow our network. As of today, we have more than 45 data centers in approximately 30 unique cities within mainland China.

Performance and security services on the Cloudflare China Network:

Content Delivery Network (CDN)

Serve static content from data centers that are dispersed across many cities in mainland China and connected to the major ISPs in every region.

In-country DNS resolution

Further reduce website load times with the option to resolve DNS requests within China.

DDoS mitigation

Stop the largest attacks with unmetered, always-on protection that operates at the network edge, reducing time-to-mitigate and eliminating web performance penalties.

Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Build and deploy custom rules in minutes, and draw on threat intelligence automatically curated from protecting millions of websites.

Encryption

Protect data in transit by uploading your own custom SSL certificate, use a universal certificate, or let Cloudflare manage dedicated certificates specific to your business.

Serverless computing

Build and deploy serverless code instantly across the entire Cloudflare network (including China) to give your applications exceptional performance, reliability, and scale.

China Network partner

The Cloudflare China Network is run in partnership with JD Cloud, the cloud computing arm of the Chinese eCommerce giant JD.com. JD Cloud was named a 'Strong Performer' in Forrester's Wave for public cloud platforms in China.
