How does CloudFlares technology work?

CloudFlare is a CDN (content delivery network) with a security layer. Once a website is part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through CloudFlares global network.

CloudFlares network stores copy of static files closer to web visitors, which means they are delivered more quickly than before. CloudFlare caches resources such as CSS, JavaScript and images. CloudFlares technology automatically decides which resources to cache based on file extension names so there is zero-configuration. CloudFlare also does compression for every request.

CloudFlares network also blocks threats and limits abusive bots before they hit the server, which means less wasted bandwidth and server resources.


Where are CloudFlares data centers located?

CloudFlares network currently has 13 locations where it does caching and traffic filtering:

Six in the US: San Jose, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, New Jersey, Dallas

Four in Europe: Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, London

Three in Asia: Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo


What types of websites can use CloudFlare?

Almost all websites can use CloudFlare. CloudFlare works for both static and dynamic websites.

CloudFlare is not suitable for websites that stream video or audio directly from their origin server. If a website uses YouTube or Vimeo for the videos embedded on your website, then that is compatible with CloudFlare.
