Host1 partners with Cloudflare

torsdag, september 11th, 2014

This is a guest post written and contributed by CloudFlare CloudFlare makes it easy for any site to be as fast and secure as the Internet giants.

CloudFlare, a web performance and security company, is excited to announce our partnership with Host1! If you haven’t heard about CloudFlare before, our value proposition is simple: we’ll make any website twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats.

Today, hundreds of thousands of websites—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments—use CloudFlare to make their sites faster and more secure. We power more than 65 billion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through our network.

Faster web performance

CloudFlare is designed to take a great hosting platform like Host1 and make it even better.

We run 23 data centers strategically located around the world. When you sign up for CloudFlare, we begin routing your traffic to the nearest data center.

As your traffic passes through the data centers, we intelligently determine what parts of your website are static versus dynamic. The static portions are cached on our servers for a short period of time, typically less than 2 hours before we check to see if they’ve been updated. By automatically moving the static parts of your site closer to your visitors, the overall performance of your site improves significantly.

CloudFlare’s intelligent caching system also means you save bandwidth, which means saving money, and decreases the load on your servers, which means your web application will run faster and more efficiently than ever. On average, CloudFlare customers see a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage, and a 65% in total requests to their servers. The overall effect is that CloudFlare will typically cut the load time for pages on your site by 50% which means higher engagement and happier visitors.

Broad web security

Over the course of 2011, CloudFlare identified a 700% increase in the number of distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS) we track on the Internet (see the chart below). As attacks like these increase, CloudFlare is stepping up to protect sites.

CloudFlare’s security protections offer a broad range of protections  against attacks such as DDoS, hacking or spam submitted to a blog or comment form. What is powerful about our approach is that the system gets smarter the more sites that are part of the CloudFlare community. We analyze the traffic patterns of hundreds of millions of visitors in real time and adapt the security systems to ensure good traffic gets through and bad traffic is stopped.

In time, our goal is nothing short of making attacks against websites a relic of history. And, given our scale and the billions of different attacks we see and adapt to every year, we’re well on our way to achieving that for sites on the CloudFlare network.

Signing up

Any website can deploy CloudFlare, regardless of your underlying platform. By integrating closely with Host1, we make the process of setting up CloudFlare «1 click easy» through your existing cPanel dashboard. Just look for the CloudFlare icon, choose the domain you want to enable, and click the orange cloud. That’s it!

We’ve kept the price as low as possible and plans offered through Host1 are free. Moreover, we never charge you for bandwidth or storage, therefore saving you tons via reduced bandwidth costs.

For site owners who would like to take advantage of CloudFlare’s advanced offerings, we also offer a ‘Pro‘ tier of service for $20/month. The ‘Pro’ tier includes all of the ‘Free’ tier’s offerings, as well as extra features like SSL, full web application firewall and faster analytics.

We’re proud that every day more than a thousand new sites, including some of the largest on the web, join the CloudFlare community. If you’re looking for a faster, safer website, you’ve got a good start with Host1, but the next step is to join the CloudFlare community.

Hvordan trene spamassassin ved hjelp av et bayesian filter.

lørdag, februar 27th, 2010

SpamAssassin er et veldig nyttig spamfilter som er inkludert i alle webhotell fra Host1. Jeg vil i denne guiden forklare hvordan du kan «trene SpamAssassin. Dette er nyttig da filteret ofte ikke tar all spam, og man vil også oppleve at mail som egentlig ikke er spam blir filtrert ut som spam. Ved å trene SA vil du kunne lære filteret hva som er spam og hva som er ham. Vi bruker et såkalt Bayesian filter for å gjøre dette.

Guiden er basert på denne guiden. Scriptet som brukes hentes fra: Merk at ikke har laget dette scriptet og kan derfor dessverre ikke ta ansvar for at det fungerer.


Litt om hva man må tenke på før man starter salg av webhotell.

Denne posten inneholder litt informasjon om hva som må til hvis man har tenkt til å starte en hosting-business. Denne posten er ikke i nærheten av å dekke alle områder, så husk at mye research, vurderinger og grundig planlegging må til før man starter på noe slikt. Håper noen får nytte av posten.
