It was sometime when I had purchased premium hosting and was shifting all websites one by one to the new server. I also had this blog which was still not transferred to this hosting but was pending transfer as there were lot of data to be transferred
After thinking of shifting blog to this hosting, I finally transferred blog to new hosting. I then started facing caching issues and slowing down of the website due to lot of images and WordPress framework caching all over. I even faced DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attempts which were in realtime made onto this blog and was looking for a solution. I then thought of adding WAF (Web Application Firewall) to my account which would remove the problem of caching, slowing down and DDoS.
I would like you all to get to know what is WAF. It is a protection layer given by CDN (Content Delivery Network) which acts as a protection between users accessing the site and my hosting server. All the site is being displayed using CDN which caches my hosting in realtime to check for updates and displays the updated content without any downtime. It also reduces load on the hosting as all the images and content are loaded from CDN and only from hosting when there is an updation. I am very happy after this….. 🙂
