How it works:


with cloudflare


without cloudflare

Without Cloudflare, both legitimate visitors and threats go directly to your website. This puts your site at risk for DDoS and bot attacks, data breaches, and downtime.

With Cloudflare’s global network, your site is now protected from bad traffic, and your content is accelerated.
