We are very excited to announce we are now an optimized host for CloudFlare. Our Koomohost team integrated their RailGun technology in to our own cloud hosting services. It will improve overall web performance for our customers’ websites, using our Cloud Hosting and Managed WordPress services.
If you want to utilize RailGun with your Koomoserver, you need to be on the ksS4 Plan, which features 4 cores and 8 gigabytes of RAM. Feel free to ping us for more details.
What is CloudFlare Railgun™?
CloudFlare’s Railgun technology greatly speeds up the delivery of non-cached pages. While CloudFlare automatically caches about 65% of the resources needed to make up a page, 35% can’t be cached because the resources are dynamically generated or marked as ‘do not cache’. That 35% is often the initial HTML of the page that must be downloaded first. CloudFlare Railgun speeds up this remaining 35%.
How does it work?
CloudFlare Railgun uses a delta compression technique to recognize that even dynamically-generated or personalized pages change only a little over time or between users. The compression technology reduces the amount of data that is sent over the Internet to CloudFlare’s data centers from your backend web servers. The result is faster delivery of the critical HTML that the browser must receive before it can download the rest of the page.
