Reviewing the Navigation Links in CloudFlare

Take a quick look at a breakdown of our apps

The Overview app gives customers an at-a-glance summary of their site settings such as  security level settings, number of DNS records on Cloudflare, and number of threats stopped  that day. This is also the app where customers can upgrade their Cloudflare plan.

Note: In the Status module under Advanced, you will find options to both pause Cloudflare services and delete your website from Cloudflare.
We’ve refreshed our Analytics app and added a host of new metrics. Along with our Traffic and Attack source map, we’ve also added these key features:
  • Types of Threats Mitigated: provides a breakdown of each of the threats to your site that were blocked or challenged.
  • Content Type Breakdown: for each response, Cloudflare lists the content type.
  • Fewer Servers Needed: provides a rough estimate of how much less capacity you need in order to handle your site’s traffic by being on Cloudflare.
The DNS app provides customers an easy way to manage DNS and choose which records are  on Cloudflare. With one click you can take records on or off Cloudflare. If you have a long list of records, don’t worry! This new DNS app has a search bar to make it easy to find the record you’re looking for. Customers will also find their Cloudflare nameservers listed in this app.
Crypto is short for Cryptography, the science of providing security for information as it travels over the internet. Encrypting information insures that no one else can read your messages, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information. 

New features under the Crypto app include HSTS and Authenticated Origin Pulls:
  • HSTS: Allows a web server to declare a policy that browsers will only connect using  secure HTTPS connections
  • Authenticated Origin PullsAllows you to verify that web requests to your origin server have come from Cloudflare.
We’ve broken our Firewall app into two sections: IP Firewall and Web Application Firewall.
  • In the IP Firewall section you can easily block or allow traffic based on IP address, IP address range, or country.
  • In the Web Application Firewall (WAF) section you can adjust the OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set and Cloudflare WAF Rule Set.
In the Speed app, users can setup Railguns as well as enable and adjust the following performance features:
  • Mirage: Improves load time for pages that include images on mobile devices with slow network connections.
  • Polish: Improves image load time.
  • Auto Minify: Reduces the file size of source code on your website.
  • Rocket Loader: Accelerate the delivery of dynamic content.
  • Mobile Redirect: Redirects visitors that are using mobile devices to a mobile-optimized website.
In the Caching app, users can adjust their caching level, purge files from cache, and set browser cache expiration times.
Page Rules are a mechanism for fine grained control over Cloudflare’s CDN. It allows you to change CDN and feature behaviors based on URL.
In the Traffic app, users can now see when IP Firewall and WAF event were triggered for their sites.


The ScrapeShield app provides customers with options for protecting sensitive information from spammers and bots, and protecting your images from being used by other sites.


In the Customize app, users can create custom error pages for IP Blocks, WAF Blocks, 500 Class Errors, 1000 Class Errors, and more.
