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.

Customer testimonials

Winner: Best in Western Europe - Nicereply Customer Happiness Awards

Since discovering Layershift through hosting forum recommendations I've been massively impressed with their always prompt, professional & pro-active customer support. I've hosted with Layershift since 2007. Prior to this date I'd used various hosts and ended up migrating my client sites each time at considerable time and expense mainly due to platform instability & poor customer support. During the honeymoon period with previous hosts things were typically fine and then...

Layershift Jelastic PaaS is the only service that would allow a novice like me the flexibility I need. I'm no web programmer but I easily managed to set everything up with no problem.

I was able to install the required PHP modules (in fact their tech support even did that for me!), I had control of core functions without having to go through command line setups of Apache servers. Tech support has been excellent and I found the online tutorials more than excellent...

Simon Watson
Head of Design - King of Shaves Company Ltd

We moved from Fasthosts as we needed good Customer Service and they weren't delivering. As a web design company we don't want to worry about any hosting problems. We need a managed server from a UK provider with a high level of expertise including fast, reliable support from people who know what they are talking about - Layershift provide the complete solution. Over a year hosting with them without any downtime at all.

Highly recommended.

Ioan Nistor is always a helpful chap! As are the team, everyone I have ever interacted with has always been of top level in professionalism and assistance.

I hold this company in high regard due to the exceptional service I always receive!

Paul Dean
Director - Bluewave Design

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.

I'm so happy that I've decided to move to Layershift! I've been with 1and1 for 10 years but their service doesn't even come to compare with the amazing support you guys offer. I was impressed with how smoothly the migration went and how painless the whole process was. You guys are setting a great example for all the other hosting providers out there!

Greg Gomes
Director - Euro Million Lottery

I have used Layershift for our business hosting since 2008. I find their service reliable, their prices competitive and their support excellent.

I use a number of hosting services for various projects but have found none compare to the quality I receive from Layershift which is the reason I continue to use them day after day for my core business operations.

Dominic Goode
Director - Bludelta

Ever since I started working with Layershift, the support provided has been second-to-none! The other hosting providers I've worked with have been a nightmare! There's no way I would ever want to move away from Layershift, your excellent service is all one could wish for.
