Traffic Guard Overview

Layershift Traffic Guard overview diagram

Layershift Traffic Guard sits between your website or web application server, and your users, accelerating application performance and automatically detecting and mitigating security threats.

Traffic Guard supports all types of HTTP and HTTPS traffic (ports 80 and 443), including WebSockets, and is compatible with any Layershift hosting service.

Content marked as cacheable by the server's headers is automatically cached on the CDN for faster response to future visitor requests. Traffic Guard can (optionally) profile other 'dynamic' content returned to accelerate that too, with fully customisable cache TTL, exclusions, purge, and security settings.

Traffic Guard Pricing

Layershift Traffic Guard starts from just £35$55 per month, and is priced based on traffic volume, number of sites, and features.

Their engineers are knowledgeable, efficient and very helpful, and often go way beyond the call of duty to help us.

It's hugely reassuring to be able to leave our server management in such expert hands, and Layershift's consistently exceptional service means we can rely on...

I would just like to express my gratitude and say a big thank you for all your efforts on the transfer of our domains from UKFast. The transfer was very smooth and all issues were resolved during the process. The users have reported no errors and no loss of service so it is a success.

Quite brilliant - thank you so much for simplifying a process that looked complex and in fact was very easy. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction - not sure what I would do without your support.

Apart from the usual teething problems, it's all gone really well and we would like to say a big thank you to you and the tech support guys who are brilliant.

Paul Dean

We inherited our relationship with Layershift after buying out another company and have been amazed at the level of service we have received. The support provided during what was a very hectic period for us was nothing short of exceptional. Our queries have always been picked up promptly and dealt with diligently. Working with Layershift has been breath of fresh air compared to the many other providers we have worked with previously.

You know when you are dealing with a well run company, and these people are as good as it gets. Well priced, helpful, highly skilled and really available 24/7/365.

We chose their fully managed service which turned out to be a wise decision. We have made extensive use of their tech support team who have helped us on many occasions where others had drawn a blank.
