How to set up Cloudflare CDN with Blogger website


Meanwhile lets first get to what this is 
Cloudflare CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a globally distributed network of servers designed to enhance the performance, security, and reliability of websites and web applications. CDN services like Cloudflare work by caching and delivering website content from servers located strategically around the world, closer to the end-users. Here are some key features and benefits of Cloudflare CDN:

1. Content Distribution: Cloudflare's network caches static assets like images, scripts, and stylesheets across its servers worldwide. When a user requests a web page, Cloudflare serves these assets from the nearest server, reducing the latency and load times.
2. Load Balancing: Cloudflare can distribute incoming web traffic across multiple servers, helping to distribute the load evenly and prevent server overload during traffic spikes.
3. DDoS Protection: Cloudflare provides robust protection against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks by filtering malicious traffic and absorbing the attack before it reaches your server. This helps keep your website online and accessible during an attack.
4. Security: Cloudflare offers a range of security features, including Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect against common web vulnerabilities, SSL/TLS encryption for secure connections, and bot mitigation to identify and block malicious bots.
5. Analytics and Insights: Cloudflare provides detailed analytics and insights into your website's traffic, performance, and security threats. This information can help you make informed decisions about optimizing your website.
6. DNS Services: Cloudflare offers DNS (Domain Name System) services, allowing you to manage your domain's DNS records within their platform. This can help improve DNS resolution times.
7. Content Optimization: Cloudflare can automatically optimize images and minify scripts to reduce the size of web page assets, improving page load times.
8. Global Network: Cloudflare operates data centers in multiple locations worldwide, ensuring that your website's content is delivered quickly to users regardless of their geographical location.
9. Scalability: Cloudflare's infrastructure can handle high levels of web traffic, making it suitable for websites and applications of all sizes.
10. Developer-Friendly: Cloudflare offers APIs and integrations with various web development tools and platforms, making it accessible to developers and allowing for custom configurations.
Cloudflare CDN helps website owners deliver faster, more secure, and highly available web content to their users. It's especially beneficial for websites with a global audience or those looking to enhance their security and performance without significant infrastructure changes.

Setting up Cloudflare CDN with a Blogger website primarily involves configuring your DNS settings. Here's a step-by-step guide with code snippets where necessary:

1. Sign Up for Cloudflare:

    Visit Cloudflare's website( and sign up for an account.

2. Add Your Website to Cloudflare:

    After creating an account, add your website by specifying your domain name.

3. Verify DNS Records:

    Make sure your DNS records match those provided by Cloudflare. These DNS records should include your Bloggerspecific settings, such as CNAME records for www.

4. Update DNS Records:

    Use Cloudflare's API or web interface to update your DNS records. Here's an example of how to add a CNAME record for "www" using Cloudflare's API (you'll need to replace `YOUR_API_KEY`, `YOUR_EMAIL`, `YOUR_DOMAIN`, and `CNAME_TARGET` with your specific information):

  curl X PUT "" \

   H "XAuthEmail: YOUR_EMAIL" \

   H "XAuthKey: YOUR_API_KEY" \

   H "ContentType: application/json" \

   data '{

     "type": "CNAME",

     "name": "www",

     "content": "CNAME_TARGET",

     "ttl": 1,

     "proxied": true


    This example assumes that you have the necessary Cloudflare API credentials and information about your DNS records. You can also update DNS records through the Cloudflare web interface.

5. Update Nameservers:

    Retrieve the nameservers provided by Cloudflare for your domain, and update them at your domain registrar. This can also be done using code if your registrar supports APIbased updates.

6. Enable HTTPS on Cloudflare:

    In your Cloudflare dashboard, navigate to the SSL/TLS settings and choose your preferred SSL mode (e.g., "Flexible" or "Full"). You can do this through the web interface, but there's no direct API for this specific setting.

7. Set Page Rules (Optional):

    You can create page rules via the Cloudflare API to optimize caching and security settings. Refer to the Cloudflare API documentation for specific details on how to create page rules programmatically.

8. Test Your Website:

    After DNS propagation is complete, test your Blogger website to ensure it's working correctly with Cloudflare's CDN.

Please note that the actual implementation of these steps can vary depending on your programming language and environment. Be sure to review Cloudflare's API documentation for more details on interacting with Cloudflare programmatically. Additionally, Blogger's settings may change over time, so you should consult Blogger's documentation for any Bloggerspecific configurations or updates.
