Yes! Cloudflare is fully compatible with all Flywheel sites. If you’d like to take advantage of Cloudflare’s features, you can do so quickly and easily thanks to their simple setup. Be sure to check out our guide to getting started with Cloudflare on Flywheel for details on how to get up and running.
So what is Cloudflare anyway? Cloudflare is a third-party service that acts as a go-between from your site’s server to your users. Cloudflare adds various features related to speed, security and performance along the way. Both free and paid plans are available, but some features are restricted to paid tiers.
To use Cloudflare, you enable your domain to use their nameservers, which makes Cloudflare the source for your domain’s DNS records and details. This means traffic will pass through Cloudflare on its way to your site’s server. You’ll set up your DNS records in Cloudflare’s dashboard rather than through your registrar, as we otherwise recommend.
There are a few reasons you might want to use Cloudflare: if your registrar doesn’t have nameservers for you to use; if you’re interested in a higher level of caching and/or security; or if you need an easy SSL solution for allowing HTTPS connections to a secondary domain on your site, for example.
