Haley Marketing is using WPEngine's Advanced Network! WPEngine's Advanced Network uses a custom blend of Cloudflare features to improve the speed, scalability, and security of your website. Best of all, the advanced network feature is provided at no charge.
This advanced network delivers increased security and performance out of the box. When you update to this network option you will have Layer 3 & 4 DDoS protection, Cloudflare’s powerful CDN, and Cloudflare Polish lossless image compression.
