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. Can Incapsula support it?
YES. When adding an SSL site, Incapsula will lead you through a simple process of supporting SSL.
Incapsula will automatically identify when web sites that support SSL traffic (HTTPS) are added to the service.
In order to enable Incapsula to support SSL traffic for such web sites, we will need to generate a certificate for your domain that will be hosted on our servers. In this process you are requested to approve the creation of such a certificate by our certificate provider.

Incapsula’s technology intelligently profiles incoming website traffic in real-time, blocking even the latest web threats: from sophisticated SQL injection attacks to scrapers, malicious bots, intruding comment spammers and thwarting multi-Gigabit DDoS attacks.

- What Kind of optimization does Incapsula do?
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.Compression
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
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.
