Introducing Cloudflare Integration

Hey there, Cloudflare user!

Have you ever considered trying CDN but then you just didn’t?

Maybe you were concerned that it would be too hard to set up.

Or maybe you were worried that it would be too complicated to back out of if you changed your mind.

Well, we’ve got good news for you: our new Cloudflare Integration feature makes both of these issues go away! Plus it has a nice security perk included.

Let’s take a look!

Ease of Setup

Anyone who is going to use CDN needs to make changes to their DNS to support it. (This is true for any CDN that protects your IP address, by the way. It’s not just a thing.)

Usually making DNS updates is a manual process, but with Cloudflare Integration, we can automate it all. Whether you find DNS intimidating, or you are a seasoned pro, wouldn’t it be nice to have someone else take care of the details?

When you sign up for CDN with Cloudflare Integration we handle all of this on your behalf:

  • Back up your domain’s existing DNS settings
  • Generate a wildcard SSL certificate for your domain
  • Point your domain’s DNS to CDN
  • Enable CDN for your domain

And if you ever want to add a domain alias, or make changes to your www and non-www settings, Cloudflare Integration will take care of the related DNS updates there, too. This is all possible via a Cloudflare API token.

No Risk

If you are not 100% in love with, we’ll be sorry to see you go. Nevertheless, we’ll put everything back exactly as it was before. Cloudflare Integration allows us to undo all of the DNS changes we made and restore your DNS to its state.

No Gap in SSL Coverage

And now for the security perk I mentioned earlier: with Cloudflare Integration, we can generate your domain’s SSL certificate before pointing your DNS to This means that your domain has SSL coverage the moment the CDN is enabled.

This is not possible for users who manually configure their CNAME DNS records for Without Cloudflare Integration, there’s an up-to-20-minute gap between activating the CDN, and having a valid SSL certificate for the domain.
