CloudFlare, Attracta & More!

July 20, 2012 at 12:07 PM

Hi Geeks!

Last month I wrote about a couple of new features in the works. Today, I can announce the addition of CloudFlare and Attracta to our Shared Hosting and Reseller Hosting servers. We hope you will enjoy these two new features, both of which can be used for free on a basic level.


CloudFlare Logo

CloudFlare operates one of the largest content delivery networks (CDN) on the internet and its mission is to accelerate and protect websites using the service. Our users can activate CloudFlare within their cPanel Control Panel with the click of a button. After activating CloudFlare, our users can then easily select which domain(s) to utilize with the CloudFlare service. To users who activate CloudFlare on their service with us, your websites will load faster and have an additional layer of security.

One of the basic concepts behind CloudFlare is their CDN. As users access your website, your content will be cached remotely on a CloudFlare CDN server closest to your user, geographically. This allows for faster response times.

SEO implications of CloudFlare are positive as well. Major search engines like websites that load fast and CloudFlare will help you achieve further success with faster response times of your website.

To view more information, and to review all of the features available with CloudFlare, you can visit their website at http://www.cloudflare.com/overview.



Attracta Logo

Attracta is a new service, available within your cPanel Control Panel.

Attracta crawls your website finding all of its pages, including pages that can't be found by search engines' crawlers, to create an XML Sitemap and SEO dashboard report. Attracta then submits your XML Sitemap directly to the XML interface of major search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, Bing and Ask— plus it helps you find and fix SEO errors. The search engines then use your XML Sitemap to drive more qualified traffic to your site by indexing more pages in search results.

New Office

Our new office is now open in Norman, Oklahoma at 210 E. Main St., Suite 219. If you are local to the Oklahoma City Metro Area or are ever passing through, stop by and say hi some time!

Our office hours have changed slightly, to 9 AM - 5 PM CST (-5 GMT). During this time, sales and billing assistance via  telephone, live chat, e-mail and our online help desk is available. As always, technical support is provided 24/7/365 through e-mail and our online help desk.
