DNS Hosting & SSL
We utilise Cloudflare for DNS management. As well as providing one of the fastest DNS services available, there are many other benefits which make Cloudflare a great service offering:
- DNS level caching. Static assets are cached and delivered via the Cloudflare global CDN meaning less resource usage on the hosting servers and more capacity for traffic spikes.
- DNS level security. Many threats are blocked before they can even touch the hosting platform.
There are two types of SSL certificate available:
Shared SNI certificate – FREE
This solution will suit the majority of websites. The only downside to this option is that it’s not 100% browser compatible, only supporting all modern browsers. Users on very old versions of Internet Explorer (and some other older systems) may have issues viewing your website. This user sub-section is very minor and will only become less of an issue over time.
Dedicated certificate – $5USD per month
This is the preferred solution for online stores or other websites taking sensitive user information. It has 100% browser compatibility and is the ideal solution if it fits within your budget. Costs are payable directly to Cloudflare via your credit card.
