“We’ve worked with CloudFlare from the inception of Railgun up until it’s launch and the technology behind it is simply astounding,” said Mohammed Naser, CEO of VEXXHOST. “On average, we’re seeing customers using CloudFlare with Railgun experience three time faster HTML load times. It makes web pages pop when you load them.”
“I was simply amazed at how much faster my sites began to load after turning on Railgun,” said Jamie Starke, a VEXXHOST customer who was part of an early testing group of Railgun. “VEXXHOST hosts many of my websites, including “jamiestarke.com”. I am incredibly happy with this new partnership and look forward to seeing the added performance benefits to all of my websites.”
CloudFlare powers a global network of 23 data centers optimized for performance. CloudFlare’s Railgun technology optimizes connections between VEXXHOST’s network and CloudFlare’s edge servers. Combining both traditional CDN techniques as well as innovative dynamic network optimization, the net effect is a massive performance increase for VEXXHOST customers’ sites regardless of where they are accessed around the world.
“We’re excited to have VEXXHOST as the first CloudFlare Optimized Partner to go live. By providing Railgun for free to all their customers, VEXXHOST has established themselves as one of the fastest hosts on the Internet,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of CloudFlare. “VEXXHOST implementation is incredibly smooth, making it easy for any website owner to install CloudFlare with just a click.”
VEXXHOST’s new CloudFlare management portal was built by VEXXHOST from the ground up and is tightly integrated with cPanel. The management portal allows any customer to sign up for CloudFlare and enable the services features, including Railgun, with just a few clicks. CloudFlare charges its Business and Enterprise customers hundreds of dollars a month for the Railgun service. As a CloudFlare Optimized Partner, VEXXHOST is offering Railgun as a free option to all its customers.
