OzHosting.com first to Partner with CloudFlare to offer Website Performance and Security through Parallels in Australia
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 23rd April 2013 – OzHosting.com, a pioneer in Australia’s cloud hosting market, has announced a strategic partnership with CloudFlare, the web performance and security company.
OzHosting.com recognised that their customers needed a service to help protect their sites from spammers and hackers, as well as giving them better site speed and performance. After considerable research and using CloudFlare on their own website at http://www.ozhosting.com.au, they realised that CloudFlare was the best service available for their customers.
“CloudFlare’s implementation and seamless integration into OzHosting.com Parallels platform allows site owners to enable CloudFlare’s security and performance benefits very easily. Website performance is one of Google’s key metrics within Google’s Webmaster Tools, so improved website load times are important for SEO and improved customer browsing experience. We are excited to now offer our customers a CDN and security option that is affordable and beneficial in every way,” noted Anthony Banek, CEO of OzHosting.com.
CloudFlare protects and accelerates pageload speeds of virtually any website online. Once a website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through CloudFlare’s intelligent global network of 23 data centers. By automatically optimising the delivery of web pages, CloudFlare provides visitors with the fastest page load times and best performance. CloudFlare also blocks threats and limits abusive bots and crawlers from wasting bandwidth and server resources.
“We are excited to add OzHosting.com as one of our first Australian hosting partners,” said Matthew Prince, CEO and co-founder of CloudFlare. “The integration of CloudFlare into their control panel makes it simple to offer enterprise-grade performance and security to all of their customers.”
“It is exciting to see OzHosting.com and CloudFlare come together in this way, and it really highlights the value of the Parallels partner ecosystem,” said John Zanni, VP of Marketing and Alliances for Parallels. “Service providers are able to seamlessly and rapidly launch new, value-added cloud services, and ultimately the SMB end-customers benefit with high-quality IT solutions previously only available to large enterprises.”
On average, a website on CloudFlare loads twice as fast, uses 60 percent less bandwidth, has 65 percent fewer requests and is much more secure. OzHosting.com’s customers can now activate CloudFlare Free or purchase CloudFlare Performance Plus to supercharge their websites with performance and security.
