Cloudflare's global Anycast network routes customers to their closest data centre: on average, your website will load twice as fast for your visitors no matter where they live.
Cloudflare analyses every request made to your website to determine if a visitor is a threat. Among other things, this is based on the visitor's IP, the resource being requested, the payload being posted and how frequently requests are being made. So while threats are being blocked, the visitors you do want are able to quickly access the pages they request.
Rocket Loader technology is included in all Cloudflare plans (even the free one). This helps your website to process more efficiently any requests for third party scripts like apps, widgets and tags. By bundling all script requests into a single request and loading them one at a time, Rocket Loader ensures no script blocks your page from loading.

You want every page on your website to render as quickly and efficiently as possible, no matter what device a visitor is using – laptop, mobile or desktop.
Cloudflare has a wide range of optimisation features to ensure web pages with ad servers and third party widgets load snappily on both mobile and computers.
Online threats to your website range from nuisance spam and excessive bot crawling to malicious viruses and potentially crippling cyber-assaults like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks. Bristling with a range of sophisticated security features, Cloudflare also uses the collective intelligence shared by a diverse web community to provide you with top-notch protection against all these threats and more.
Cloudflare has a simple aim: to boost the performance of your website. Its Content Delivery (or Distribution) Network (CDN) distributes your site’s content to various data centres around the world so when a visitor clicks onto your website, its content is delivered from the visitor's nearest centre. Your website's speed increases dramatically – good news for your users!
You bet! Not only does Cloudflare protect your website against hackers and malicious visitors but since your website is cached, your uptime increases, reliability improves, and you'll enjoy an overall better web hosting experience.
