Supercharged Speed & Security

Boost your website security and loading speeds with a Cloudflare CDN package from Storm

We've partnered with Cloudflare to bring you electrifying security features, supercharged website speeds, and rock-solid performance.

Add all your websites (not only those hosted with Storm) to Cloudflare's CDN and enjoy the benefit of "hive mind" security and blistering content delivery speeds. With Storm and Cloudflare's global CDN (Content Delivery Network) and proprietary Railgun optimisation technology, your website visitors will get more done faster and safer.



Improve your web site's performance by up to 200%

Combining Cloudflare's global CDN (Content Delivery Network) and proprietary Railgun optimisation technology with our own multicarrier high-speed low-latency network, we've developed WebAccelerateTM - capable of increasing page load times by up to 200%

Stop hackers attacking your site

The collective knowledge of 6 million websites powers intelligent security that protects against anything from nuisance comment spam and excessive bot crawling to potentially fatal Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks.

Always Online Reliability

Storm's 100% uptime guarantee backed by Cloudflare's global Anycast network ensures that your website is always online, and always available to any internet-connected device. Used by more than 6 million websites, including major e-commerce sites, government agencies, and enterprises.

Protect your data from theft & ensure you're compliant with GDPR legislation

On 25th May 2018, the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) legislation comes into effect and applies to all individuals and organisations who store data. Fines of up to £500,000 or 4% of annual turnover are set to be imposed on anyone who does not comply or suffers a data breach. Combining our partnership with Cloudflare with our years of managed hosting and online security experience, we will help ensure that your data is safe, secure and compliant at all times.
