You’re trying to launch a new site, and you’re struggling with how to make it secure, how to make it stand out from the crowd, and how to make it easy to remember. You’ve heard of cloudflare, and you’re worried about the limitations of that free service. You want to try something different and don’t know where to start. This is the answer: Start a new site with Clickfunnels without cloudflare.
We know, as a brand, that security is a top concern. When it comes to hosting our websites, we’d like to ensure that no one is tampering with our content or attacking our site. So when we found out about Clickfunnels and their VPN service, we were very interested. With their service, your content is encrypted before it’s transmitted to their servers, which means that even if a hacker got access to your email account, they wouldn’t be able to read your drafts or published content. They’d only see garbled texts because the content is encrypted. This is huge!
Plus, with some of the plans from Clickfunnels, you get features that you wouldn’t normally get for free from a traditional hosting provider. For example, if you have a photography portfolio that you want to showcase, you’d have to install a fully featured photography gallery on your site. With Clickfunnels, you simply add a few lines of code, and your photography gallery is ready to go – no configuration needed!
How To Start A New Site With Clickfunnels Without Cloudflare
So how exactly do you go about doing this? Let’s take a look.
1. Register A Domain Name
First thing’s first: you need to register a domain name for your new site. If you don’t have a website yet, you can use one of the domain name brokers like Hover to get a quality domain for cheap. Once you have purchased a domain name, it’s time to move on to the next step.
2. Set Up Your Backend With Cloudflare
Next, you’ll need to set up your back-end with cloudflare. Cloudflare is a web content delivery network, which basically means that they act as your site’s web server while you focus on building out your site’s design and functionality.
Setting up a back-end with cloudflare is very easy. You simply need to create a new account on their site and navigate to the “Dashboard” section. From there, you will see a large button that says “Enable Free SSL”. Click that button to activate the free SSL service. Once you have activated the free SSL, it will ask you to verify your domain by adding a new cron job to your website’s back-end. Do this by going to your site’s dashboard, clicking “settings” in the menu, then clicking “cron jobs” in the sidebar.
You will see a “+ Add” button next to “Cron job 1”. Click this button to add a new one. You can add as many cron jobs as you’d like using the “+ Add” button. Once you have added a new cron job, it will ask you to verify that you created it correctly. To do this, go back to your dashboard, then click “jobs” in the menu. You will see your new cron job listed there. Finally, save your settings and you’re good to go!
3. Launch A New Site
Once you have a working back-end with cloudflare, it’s time to launch your new site! To do this, you will need to create a new WordPress account and install the WordPress plugin “Cloudflare”. Once installed, navigate to your site’s dashboard, then click the button that says “Go Live”. You’re good to go!
From here, you can configure the site and begin adding content.
Once you have launched your new site, you can apply for Cloudflare’s SSL certificate to make it secure and easy for your visitors to find your content.
If you’re worried about Google ranking your new site, you can use their free tool, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Analytics, to track the keywords and phrases that are generating the most interest for your articles. With this information, you can begin to build your content around keywords and phrases to improve your SEO.
If you have a specific topic that you’d like to write about, but you don’t have the time to do extensive research, you can use Google’s new feature: Docs and Sheets, to create and share research documents with your team.
So, as you can see, setting up a new site with Clickfunnels without cloudflare is simple. You simply need to follow the steps listed above, and you’ll be up and running in no time.
