Liquid Web is excited to announce our partnership with Cloudflare via the Bandwidth Alliance (BA). The BA is a group of forward-thinking cloud and networking companies that are committed to providing the best and most cost-efficient experience for our mutual customers. This partnership represents yet another step in Liquid Web’s commitment to empowering Web Professionals worldwide in one of the most effective and quantifiable means possible: the bottom line.
With this partnership, Liquid Web has committed to providing free bandwidth for all egress traffic (traffic leaving Liquid Web’s network) destined for Cloudflare’s network. This means that, for most websites and applications which use Cloudflare, this bandwidth represents the bulk of the traffic for which users typically have to pay.
This move constitutes an impressive saving for Liquid Web customers, bandwidth charges being one of the most widely varying monthly costs for consumers across the industry. Even so, it was a natural move for Liquid Web and a logical step in our commitment to powering the online potential of our customers.
We’ve intentionally designed our broad product portfolio, customer experience and managed hosting services to power the potential of Entrepreneurial businesses and the designers, developers, and agencies who create for them. Adding this free egress bandwidth is another way we can deliver value to our SMB customers reinforcing our role as their hosting expert and business partner.
Because we own our own data centers, changes were implemented with no impact and Liquid Web customers will begin seeing cost savings immediately.
This move allies us with some of the biggest names in the industry and indeed shows our willingness to continue making the internet better. As issues such as security and privacy continue to ring to the top of the mindset of most internet citizens, cost becomes a weightier subject and often a hindrance to finding robust and dependable service providers. Working to alleviate that burden not only helps clients make well-informed decisions, but it also removes blocks and truly bolsters Liquid Web’s core commitment to empowering by broadening options and offering peace of mind.
