CloudFlare Railgun Offered for free exclusively on our web hosting platforms.
We have partnered with CloudFlare in order to make CloudFlare work much more efficiently on our servers than any other web hosting company, as we are a CloudFlare optimized partner. CloudFlare Optimized Partners offer all the benefits of a CloudFlare Certified Partner, plus Railgun.
CloudFlare makes website safer, smarter, and faster. Web traffic is routed through our CloudFlare’s intelligent global network. We optimize delivery of your web pages automatically so your visitors get the faster and smarter performance. At each location of intelligent global network, CloudFlare does caching, web content optimization and malicious bot filtering that block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting bandwidth and server resources.
Railgun ensures that the connection between our network and the CloudFlare network is as fast as possible. Railgun achieves a 99.6% compression ratio for previously uncacheable web objects by using techniques similar to those used in the compression of high-quality video. This results in an average 730% performance increase.
When a request is made to a CloudFlare server for a web page that is not in cache CloudFlare makes an HTTP connection to the origin server to request the page. It’s that HTTP connection that Railgun accelerates and secures.
Railgun uses a new caching mechanism based on comparing page versions to determine what needs to be transmitted across the Internet to the CloudFlare network. Using this mechanism CloudFlare is able to achieve typical 99.6% compression (taking, for example, a 100k web page down to 400 bytes) and a speedup of over 700%.
