Cloudflare and WordPress

At WPhost, you’ll already get top performance out of even the highest traffic sites, but if you want even more speed we offer global Content Delivery Network (CDN) solutions.

All WPhost plans include our new built-in global CDN (powered by Fastly) for free. Full setup by our team of WordPress experts is included. Cloudflare is another option and WPhost is a Cloudflare Certified Partner.

Adding a Content Delivery Network such as Fastly or Cloudflare to your WordPress site will further accelerate page load speeds, improve SEO, and protect against DDoS attacks and WordPress-specific vulnerabilities.

Cloudflare’s global Content Delivery Network, powered by data centres in 285 cities around the world, including mainland China reduces latency and time to first byte by delivering content as close as geographically possible to visitors. And while most WordPress sites don’t need to worry about DDOS attacks, Cloudflare is excellent at preventing DDOS attacks since your server’s IP address is masked.

Cloudflare Performance & Security

Cloudflare Features

Cloudflare's Performance and Security Services work in conjunction to reduce latency of web sites, mobile applications, and APIs end-to-end, while protecting against DDoS attack, abusive bots, and data breach.

Content Delivery Network

With 285 data centres in more than 100 countries, Cloudflare’s CDN caches static content at the edge, reducing latency by delivering assets as close as geographically possible to visitors.

Anycast Network

With 285 data centres in more than 100 countries and 15 Tbps of capacity, Cloudflare’s Anycast network absorbs distributed attack traffic by dispersing it geographically, while keeping Internet properties available and performant.

Website Optimizations

Cloudflare includes a suite of web optimizations to improve the performance of Internet assets. Optimizations include the latest web standards, such as HTTP/2 and TLS 1.3.


DNSSEC is the Internet’s non-spoofable caller ID. It guarantees a web application’s traffic is safely routed to the correct servers so that a site’s visitors are not intercepted by a hidden “man-in-the-middle” attacker.


Cloudflare is the fastest managed DNS provider in the world, routing over 38% of all global DNS traffic. Cloudflare has multiple ways to achieve maximum performance for online assets.


Transport Security Layer (TLS) encryption enables HTTPS connections between visitors and origin server(s), preventing man-in-the-middle attacks, packet sniffing, the display of web browser trust warnings, and more.
