What are the requirements for CloudFlare

Any web site can use the CloudFlare CDN. CloudFlare is activated by making changes to your DNS records. If we manage your DNS then these changes are done automatically through cPanel. If you manage your own DNS, you will need to make some minor changes.

CloudFlare only protects www.yourdomain.tld (not yourdomain.tld). With most content managment software (like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla etc.) it is easy to configure the software to always use the "www" name. You can also do it manually by adding the following code to the .htaccess file in your public_html folder:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysite.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Replace 'mysite.com' with your actual site name.
