DreamHost Users Can Now Make Their Site Load Much Faster For Free [Updates]
April 7, 2012 | In: Uncategorized
DreamHost has just teamed up with CloudFlare, a content delivery network so that DreamHost users can now activate a single checkbox in their admin panel to make their websites load significantly faster.
To get to your Cloudflare checkbox, you need to access your DreamHost admin panel, click Manage Domains, and click the Edit link for the domain you’d like to use with CloudFlare.
Within the admin panel for the specific domain, the checkbox looks like this:
Once you click this checkbox and create your new, free, CloudFlare account, simply save your account information and you’re done. DNS will take a few hours to re-propagate, and then you should start seeing your website load faster. Note that if you have DreamHost configured to strip the www prefix for your site (i.e, turn www.makeuseof.com into makeuseof.com), you will need to disable this option and add the www for now. DreamHost say they are working on this limitation.
