BlueHost Blues | CloudFlare Testing | iPhone Videography

07:25 CHECKED GoDaddy account.  Still safe unlike Bluehost. No trace of attacks.

07:55 INSTALLED Sucuri plugin in VRM, WZ, BJ, BMZ.
08:00 - 08:25
CHECKED free CloudFlare at GoDaddy. Not available. Hostgator? Yes. Available.

CONFIGURING CLOUDFLARE ON GODADDY: 1. Create your free account on
CloudFlare. 2. Add a domain to your CloudFlare account. 3. CloudFlare will scan your records. After 60 seconds, CloudFlare will prompt you to enter the missing DNS records. Click ‘Continue Setup.’ 4. Login to your GoDaddy dashboard and click on cPanel > Advanced DNS Zone Editor. 5.Locate the information CloudFlare needs (varies per installation) and update it in your CloudFlare account. Click “I’ve added all missing records, continue.” 6. Choose your price plan (I chose free!).

Lesson Learnt:  Never upgrade web host plan when the first contract is low.
