Increased Savings

Caching content on the Cloudflare network reduces the need to source content from the origin, reducing costs. Additionally, shared customers of Cloudflare partners are entitled to significantly discounted cloud egress fees with the Bandwidth Alliance

Static and Dynamic Content Delivery

Cloudflare supports over 20 million domains on the web, and intelligently routes content requests on its network along the fastest path using Argo Smart Routing. Traffic can also be load balanced across multiple origins, using proximity and network latency to determine the most efficient destination for each request.

Custom caching controls

Highly Customizable CDN

Cloudflare lets you apply advanced control over how content is cached on its network. Page Rules let you specify particular behavior for individual URLs, including what gets cached and for how long. The Cloudflare Cache API lets customers have more control over how content is cached, and improves cache hit ratios with advanced routing and URL canonicalization.

Increased bandwidth savings

Increased bandwidth savings

Caching content on Cloudflare's network reduces the number of requests to an origin by serving static content from a Cloudflare data center, minimizing bandwidth consumption.

Cloudflare offers predictable bandwidth pricing, with no surge pricing when you get attacked. Customers hosting their websites with Cloudflare partners can reduce or completely eliminate data egress costs from their hosting provider to Cloudflare when dynamic content is requested.

HTTP3 portal 2x

Support for HTTP/3

HTTP/3 is the latest generation of the protocol that powers the web. Instead of using TCP as the transport layer, HTTP/3 uses QUIC, a new Internet transport protocol which is encrypted by default and helps accelerate delivery of traffic.

Cloudflare's support for HTTP/3 enables faster, more reliable, and more secure connections to websites and APIs.
