How do I activate CloudFlare for my hosting account?

Getting started is super easy—you just need to log into your control panel and look for the CloudFlare icon. With two clicks, you can activate CloudFlare and your website will automatically be faster and safer around the world.

Since CloudFlare changes the CNAME record of the www subdomain only, you would also need to redirect traffic from mysite.com to www.mysite.com

If you are using .htaccess to do redirections, here is how you implement a redirect:

   `RewriteEngine On
   RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysite.com$ [NC]
   RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.com/$1 [R=301,L]` 

We are pleased to offer you the CloudFlare service for FREE. There is no commitment. Turning CloudFlare on and off takes two clicks of the mouse, so feel free to try it out. We think you’ll like it.

Feel free to send a mail to support@hostnet.com.ng if you have any issues with this.
