One of the most popular features we offer with all of our accounts here at Temaco Webhosting is our direct integration with Cloudflare.

Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet by focusing on performance, security, reliability, and network insight.

At Temaco Webhosting, customers have a couple of different integration options:

  • Full Integration – You use Cloudflare’s name servers
  • Partial Integration – You use Temaco Webhosting’s or your Reseller name servers

Full Integration

Full integration with Cloudflare means you allow them to control your DNS records.  To set this up, you have to go directly to Cloudflare.com, signup for a free account, and update your name servers to Cloudflare’s.

You can then manage your account inside of your cPanel account at Temaco Webosting by logging into cPanel -> Cloudflare:

Cloudflare Dashboard

Full integration enables Cloudflare across your domain and on your subdomains, you just have to ensure you click “On” in the Use Cloudflare column (click on the Domains icon).

Partial Integration

Partial integration with Cloudflare means you still control your DNS records inside of cPanel and you use Temaco Webosting’s name servers or your Private Reseller name servers (free with all Reseller accounts).

The main difference with a partial integration is Cloudflare is you have to use corresponding CNAMEs to the Cloudflare service (that are automatically created).

To set this up, you simply login to your cPanel account at Temaco Webosting, navigate to Cloudflare then create your account.  You’ll then be able to manage your domain from directly inside cPanel:

The main difference between a Partial and Full Integration is the ability to use SSL on services such as cPanel, Web Host Manager, or Webmail.

At Temaco Webhosting, the partial integration is by far the most popular, especially amongst Resellers who enjoy using their private name servers.

Cloudflare Railgun

Regardless of the integration, you choose to use, we also offer Cloudflare’s Railgun technology on all accounts free of charge.

In the full integration screenshot above, you’ll see you can enable it from the main dashboard.  On a partial integration, you have to click on the Performance icon and then enable it.

If you were to purchase this alone on Cloudflare.com you would have to have their business account which starts at $200/month. Learn how Cloudflare Railgun can help increase your website’s speed up to 200%!

Cloudflare Extras

If you want to increase your website’s performance, even more, you can add some of Cloudflare’s paid extras such as Argo.

Regardless, you’re still going to receive a lot of benefits from integrating with Cloudflare that will help speed up and protect your website.  I personally recommend using them regardless of the size of your website!

If you have any trouble getting your website integrated with Cloudflare using Temaco Web Hosting, feel free to reach us up, it’d be our pleasure to assist!
