A CDN or content delivery network is the backbone of the internet which delivers content efficiently depending on your geographical location. It’s always recommended to use a CDN for your website as it reduces database requests for better responsiveness.

You can always have a CDN for your website but Siteground is providing CloudFlare option in its cPanel which means you can enable it with just a few clicks. Though many people face some technical problems, Siteground hosting makes it easy enough that almost no technical knowledge is required.

Step 1: Head straight to your Cpanel and look for the site improvement tool section. Click on the Cloudflare icon when you see it.

Step 4: Next, you’ll be asked to check whether your website works with “www” or not. If not, then you have to reconfigure the settings. This means, that your website should open with “www” and without it. Though it’s not asking for a “non-www” URL, you should have it working properly.

Now, click “Yes” button.

You can manage individual options on your hosting, if you wish to change a few settings. The complete process might sound big, but it’s really simple to do and ideally should not take more than a minute.

If you are using any other web hosting, I’ll recommend you using Siteground Web Hosting as it has major features like SSL/HTTP2, Free Backups, SSD Storage, Supercacher, unmatched 24/7 support and much more.
