The tie-in with CloudFlare includes the Mirage and Railgun features. Mirage analyses a web user’s connection and screen size, (such as smartphone, desktop, tablet or laptop), to ensure that all images are being displayed effectively. Railgun is responsible for caching content so it loads quicker, meaning a better experience for visitors, no matter where in the world they’re browsing.

Site owners using web apps installed in ‘Free mode’ will be emailed about necessary updates and any other recommended actions to ensure their websites remain safe and secure.

CDN and SiteLock Basic are now included in 1&1 Unlimited packages, from £3.99 per month, and Unlimited Plus packages, from £4.99 per month. Mirage is included in all 1&1 CDN or 1&1 CDN Plus packages, while 1&1 Unlimited Plus packages and all 1&1 Managed Servers now include Railgun as part of the CDN.
