A2 Hosting Partners With CloudFlare To Offer Free CDN

Linux Hosting provider www.A2Hosting.com has partnered with www.CloudFlare.com to offer their content delivery network (CDN) solution to their Web Hosting customers. CloudFlare’s service helps websites load an average of 30% faster. While most hosting companies charge their customers to use a CDN, A2 Hosting offers this service for free. A2 Hosting customers can opt into CDN Hosting (http://www.a2hosting.com/services/cdn-hosting) with 1-click within the award winning cPanel control panel.

CloudFlare optimizes the delivery of web pages by storing duplicates of a site’s static content (i.e. CSS, Javascript and images) on their servers located worldwide. Once an A2 Hosting customer activates their CDN account in cPanel, their content is automatically served through CloudFlare’s global network. Content is served from the CloudFlare server located closest to each visitor. The closer the CDN server is located to a website visitor, the faster the content is delivered.

A2 Hosting customers taking advantage of CloudFlare’s service will also experience enhanced website security. CloudFlare utilizes information from Project Honey Pot, third party sources and its own community to identify malicious threats and stop attacks before they even reach a website. Website owners can adjust the security level on a site-by-site basis. CloudFlare notifies human website visitors if their computer is infected by malware or a virus. That visitor may enter a site once they have removed the issue from their machine and enter a CAPTCHA.

Marketing Manager Brad Litwin commented on the partnership: “When we tested CloudFlare, we were thoroughly impressed by its features, especially CloudFlare’s clearly evident capability to increase a site’s performance. We are very excited to offer this CDN to our customers, for free no less, and allow them to opt into CloudFlare’s network with a single click.

“We are pleased to have partnered with A2 Hosting,” says Matthew Prince, CEO of CloudFlare. “A2 Hosting is focused on helping websites grow, and CloudFlare is proud to be part of the toolkit that allows sites to do that.”
