Today, we’re happy to announce (mt) Media Temple’s partnership with CloudFlare, the web’s easiest speed and security system. We partnered with CloudFlare because they have a simple and free solution to help protect and accelerate any website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, your website visitors get faster page load times and improved performance.

To get started, you just need to log into the (mt) AccountCenter and after a few clicks CloudFlare is up and running on your site. Activating CloudFlare automatically optimizes the delivery of your web pages and protects your site from harmful attackers and crawlers.

How does it work?

CloudFlare powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks. People view your site through an accelerated path that uses the shared security knowledge of thousands of other sites to automatically detect and block malicious traffic.

The result: Your pages load faster and are more secure than ever before, at zero cost.

How do I get started?

All you need to do is login to the AccountCenter, enable CloudFlare, and activate one of your eligible sites. For most sites, setup is handled automatically and will take less than five minutes. If you have domains registered elsewhere or use custom settings on a (dv) Dedicated-Virtual or (ve) Server, some steps will need your input.

CloudFlare setup, activation, and service are all free and there is no commitment. Turning CloudFlare on and off takes two clicks after activation, so feel free to try it out.
