SiteGround announced earlier today that they are expanding their CloudFlare support which has been a staple of the company since 2012. Today, they are making two improvements one for each of their packages.
SSL is now supported in the free plan, allowing every SiteGround user to take advantage of this amazing service over SSL. In addition the CloudFlare + Plan (paid version) now comes with CloudFlare’s Web Application Firewall or WAF.
The SSL support has been the most requested feature by their CloudFlare users over the last year and this is because the company has been actively trying to increase the SSL usage on their own servers. With the integration of Let’s Encrypt (and giving all new websites an SSL at creation) SiteGround is no stranger to SSL. This new change allows customers to make use of SiteGround’s CloudFlare integration without needing to purchase the upgraded plan just because they are using SSL.
Furthermore, to enable this new setting it as simple as flipping a switch in your control panel.
