When your business exists primarily (or entirely) online, security is paramount.
That’s why we’re happy to announce we’re bringing in the enhanced protection of Cloudflare to make your Kajabi sites faster and more secure, at no additional cost to you. Let’s dive into what Cloudflare is and how this will benefit your business.
TLDR: Kajabi is using Cloudflare to make your sites perform better and be more protected from cyber threats. You don’t have to do anything to get these benefits. It’s included with your Kajabi membership.
What’s Cloudflare, and why did we choose them?
We chose Cloudflare for one simple reason: they’re the best in the business at what they do. Cloudflare provides security, performance, and reliability services that help to ensure websites, apps and Internet services are secure and fast. Cloudflare is used and trusted by companies of all sizes, including companies like IBM and Shopify.
When it comes to the security and level of protection we extend to Kajabi Heroes, we won’t settle for anything less than the best.
Cloudflare provides an edge network, which serves as a point of connection for the people trying to access a site and the server that contains the site’s content and components. Using an edge network helps you by:
- Improving your site’s performance
- Creating a better experience for your site visitors
- Serving an important role in your site’s security.
We’ll unpack all of these benefits below.
How does Cloudflare protect your site?
Cloudflare is specifically designed to protect against online attacks like distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. A DDoS attack is where multiple compromised bots flood your site with traffic.
With so much artificial traffic, regular customers can’t reach your site. These types of attacks can result in your site going down, ultimately translating to lost revenue. Cloudflare uses a host of techniques and technology to identify and stop DDoS attacks from getting to your Kajabi sites.
That’s just one of the great security benefits your Kajabi site will receive with Cloudflare. They can also offer protection against malicious bots that steal your site’s content and fill out your forms with gibberish.
Take that bots! No free ebook for you.
How does the Cloudflare migration improve your site’s performance?
Your Kajabi site will not only be more protected with Cloudflare, it will also perform better thanks to the Cloudflare Content Delivery Network (CDN). You can expect the CDN to be incorporated into our Cloudflare account in the coming months. This will make your Kajabi websites faster and provide a better overall experience. We’ll make sure to let you know once this feature is added.
We’ve all been to a website that just takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r to load. This turns off customers, even if the site has amazing content and online courses. The Cloudflare CDN will cache some of your static content physically closer to where site visitors are, leading to a faster initial load and a better overall experience on desktop, mobile and tablets.
Note: if you are already on a free Cloudflare account, this migration won’t take away any of your existing page rules. Rather, this adds a new layer of protection to your account.
When will the Cloudflare migration roll out?
The great news is that you don’t have to lift a finger to get the benefits of Cloudflare. We completed this migration on November 4th. We’re excited to share that this added protection and security is already available inside your account. The Cloudflare CDN benefits will start rolling out over the coming months.
