Installed CloudFlare CDN
CloudFlare is a CDN (Content Delivery Network) and website optimizer.
Dreamhost invited me to a free CloudFlare subscription. So far, it looks like it’s really improved website performance on both my blogs and wikis. I’m not sure how it works under the hood with the caching, CDNing, and threat protection, and that bugs me. But hey, faster website!
Holy crap! After 1 day, Cloudflare claims that nearly 1/2 of the traffic on my website was from “threats” (spammers and the like). And for all those jerks’ work, do you know how many spam comments they got posted to my site? Approximately 0.
I’ll keep an eye on these numbers and report back soon.
