GetDeb gets a CDN

Due to the increasing visitors of our sites (both GetDeb.net and PlayDeb.net) and the bandwidth they consumed there was some downtime or slowness the past days. So we decided to make use of a CDN (CloudFlare in this case) to cache the static contents of the sites (mainly screenshots) and so help to decrease the traffic to our main server or another static content server.

This has been set up in the past days and is working well now. You may have got a page from CloudFlare telling that the site is not cached yet. But meanwhile all DNS changing and most of caching has been done which resulted in a great speed up when loading the sites.

Please let us know if you encounter difficulties and thanks for using our services ;)
