What is Cloudflare?
Cloudflare is a global network of servers. When you add your application to Cloudflare, we use this network to sit in between requests and your origin server.
This position allows us to do several things — speeding up content delivery and user experience (
CDN), protecting your website from malicious activity (
DDoS, Web Application Firewall), routing traffic (Load balancing, Waiting Room), and more.
