Will Incapsula make my website faster?
YES! Incapsula has a distributed network of data centers (POPs) that ensures that every user and website are serviced by the closest POP. This is the same principal technology that is used by most of the large websites to accelerate the delivery of their content through a Content Delivery Network (CDN). Furthermore, Incapsula will make your site run faster and consume less computing and bandwidth resources by caching site data and applying other acceleration techniques.

My website has SSL. Do you support it?
YES. When adding an SSL site, Incapsula will lead you through a simple process of supporting SSL.
Incapsula will automatically identify when websites that support SSL traffic (HTTPS) are added to the service.
In order to enable support for SSL traffic, Incapsula generates a certificate for your domain that will be hosted on its servers. In this process you are requested to approve the creation of such a certificate by Incapsula’s SSL certificate provider.
What types of threats does Incapsula protect against?
Incapsula's enterprise-grade Web Application Firewall ensures that your website or application is always protected against any type of Application Layer hacking attempt. This includes OWASP top 10 threats such as SQL injection, cross site scripting, illegal resource access and remote file inclusion. The comprehensive DDoS Protection service secures applications and infrastructure from any type of DDoS attack, targeting any type of service.

How does Incapsula optimize website content?
Dynamic content caching
Incapsula caches web site content on its proxies in order to return resources faster to users and reduce page load time, bandwidth and server load. Incapsula does not only cache static content but can also identify content dynamically generated by the application, which can be cached while it remains unchanged.
An average website page is 100KB to 500KB, depending on its content, structure, functionality and the resources it contains. For content-rich applications, the simple task of transferring the page to the browser can take a long time. Common web servers and browsers support content compression. Configuring the compression of resources on your web server requires complicated settings, technical expertise, and substantial processing power from your web server. Incapsula compresses this content for you, even when sent uncompressed from your server.
Minification is the process of removing all unnecessary characters from source code, without changing its functionality. These unnecessary characters usually include white spaces, new line characters and comments, often used to add readability to the code but not required for its execution. By removing these characters, Incapsula minimizes your website's size, making it lighter and reducing loading time.
