● Why set up Cloudflare CDN?
The CDN stands for content delivery network, and what this means is that no matter where a visitor to your website is located, they will be able to load your website content faster from a server closer to their location than from your hosting provider's data center.
For example, I'm located in the United States and my website is hosted in a SiteGround data center in the USA because the majority of my visitors are located in the USA. However, if a visitor from Asia or Europe were to visit my website, it would take longer for the data to reach them from the USA data center.
With a CDN, my content can load from a server in Asia for the Asia visitor, and from a server in Europe for a European visitor. This drastically cuts down the load time, meaning the visitor is more likely to stay on my website, and not get impatient and leave. This also means Google will prefer my website over a slower loading website because speed increases positive user experience which is what the search engines are after.
Cloudflare will also protect you from the traffic that is deemed malicious, and prevent attacks that may bring down your website. There is a place you can change the Cloudflare settings to block specific traffic.
● SiteGround's new client area
SiteGround has moved from the cPanel interface to one they developed in-house. The interface and tools are really impressive, and creating and activating a new Cloudflare account is done in three easy steps.
● Cloudflare CDN settings
Next, I walk you through the different settings you can select. This will be for the free basic version as the premium version has a couple more settings you can change. This is also where you can set traffic blocking parameters to block certain IP addresses, and add any sub-domains for your website to take advantage of the CDN.
