Phirefast Adopts Cloud Hosting Features, Offers Them For Free To Clients
Los Angeles CA – A provider of website hosting and domain services since 2004, PhireFast.com has partnered with San Francisco-based CloudFlare, a leading provider of cloud hosting services which integrate with existing hosting platforms.
CloudFlare delivers both a new layer of security to PhireFast’s hosting platform, and enhancements clients will notice immediately. Features like caching and a global CDN with Anycast Routing Technology results in websites loading twice as fast, on average.
An “I’m Under Attack” feature, unique to CloudFlare, closely inspects the user’s traffic when the user suspects their website is being threatened. This feature was no doubt used when CloudFlare was pushed into the spotlight by Wikileaks, which experienced a 10 gigabit per second attack in August 2012, known as a Distributed Denial Of Service (DDOS) attack. The remedy to this all-too-common issue was CloudFlare’s scalable, “smart” traffic inspection functionality, which identifies and blocks “bad traffic” in realtime.
PhireFast clients may use the CloudFlare services with their account for free, and can upgrade to a paid CloudFlare account for more advanced security features, more frequently computed website statistics, and mobile optimization.
PhireFast’s founder and CEO Mark Mutti speaks about CloudFlare: “CloudFlare impressed us during our testing phase, which included the use of live websites belonging to clients who’ve opted to beta test new features. We shouldn’t deny that the cloud is the way of the future, and CloudFlare’s integration was seamless. Of course, offering this for free to our clients is a big bonus. We’re always looking for ways to enhance our platform, and CloudFlare delivers more security, speed AND redundancy to PhireFast. This is big!”
