CloudFlare is an online tool that boosts the productivity of any website online by protecting and accelerating it. CloudFlare is a unique global network where they route your web traffic through.

What that means is that they help your website be easily found to the people looking for it. Each webpage is automatically optimized for delivery so your visitors get the fastest experiences with your website.

Pages load faster, videos don’t buffer or skip, spam bots are blocked and crawlers that love to waste your bandwidth and other server resources are also blocked.

CloudFlare has a free plan with not too many services, and of course paid plans as well.
