Benefits of Using Cloudflare with Wordpress

Automatic Platform Optimization (APO)

Take your WordPress site’s performance to the next level with Automatic Platform Optimizations (APO). APO allows Cloudflare to serve your entire WordPress site from its edge network ensuring consistent, fast performance for visitors no matter where they are. Find out more in our announcement blog.

Increased Performance and Speed

Take your Wordpress performance to the next level with Cloudflare. We automatically cache your site on 200+ Cloudflare points-of-presence across the world. Additionally, we offer automatic asset minification, best-in-class DNS, and premium performance features on our paid plan that will supercharge the perfomance of your Wordpress site.

SSL For WordPress

Cloudflare offers free SSL certificates for WordPress users. With SSL for WordPress you can secure data being transferred between your website and your visitors. Secure websites are looked positively upon by both users and search engines.

Web Application Firewall (WAF) Rulesets

Wordpress is one of the most popular website frameworks around. That popularity attracts a lot attention from hackers and malicious bots. Cloudflare’s web application firewall (WAF), available on all of Cloudflare’s paid plans, has built-in rulesets specifically built to mitigate against WordPress threats and vulnerabilities. Cloudflare’s WAF provides confidence that your website is always protected, even against the latest threats and vulnerabilities targeting WordPress websites.

Mixed Content Fixes with Automatic HTTPS Rewrites

Automatic HTTPS Rewrites safely eliminates mixed content issues on your WordPress website, while enhancing performance and security by rewriting insecure URLs dynamically from known (secure) hosts to their secure counterpart. By enforcing a secure connection, Automatic HTTPS Rewrites enables your WordPress website to take advantage of the latest security standards and web optimization features only available over HTTPS. The Automatic HTTPS Rewrites toggle can be found in the dashboard of Cloudflare's plugin for WordPress.

Improving SEO For WordPress

Google has announced that they prioritize fast-loading pages as well as pages using security features like SSL in their search algorithm. When using Cloudflare, you automatically realize all of those SEO benefits.

DDoS Protection For WordPress

Distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks are among the most common threats to websites. Enabling Cloudflare's free DDoS protection for WordPress uses tools like rate limiting to protect your website from attackers.
