How to speed up your site with CloudFlare

Many weeks back after much deliberation, I decided to give CloudFlare a shot. As they describe themselves…

CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through our intelligent global network. We automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. We also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.

CloudFlare

CloudFlare offers both free and paid plans. You can check out a comparison between the various plans as well as see all that you have for offer. If you’re running a huge site, getting a paid plan is definitely a great option. It definitely works out cheaper than running your own server.

If you’ve decided to take the plunge, here is how you can go about speeding up your website. Note that you’ll need to be able to have access to change the nameservers for your domains, as well as add and activate a WordPress plugin (optional).

Follow my guide below to add your website to CloudFlare. I’ll walk you through how I added my site on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to CloudFlare.

Gmail new compose feature

Improve your productivity with Gmail’s new compose experience

Composing emails in a desktop client like Thunderbird or Postbox allows you switch back and forth between windows easily. Look up your other emails for reference or just let the Compose window sit in the background while you check new mail. By contrast most web-based clients don’t give you this flexibility and Gmail hopes to remedy that with the new compose feature.
