While the website itself is considerably faster now we should still optimize
the hosting. I don't know how much better this currently is in US as compared
to Europe but it's still a good choice if we expect more upcoming traffic.

The easiest options are Incapsula or CloudFlare.
Setting them up requires very little effort.

Both services do not host any files, they act as caching layer in front of the
actual host. This works by redirecting the DNS entry for the domain.

Both offer free plans.

CloudFlare requires you to use their DNS server for the whole domain.
Incapsula works with a CNAME redirect.

I had some issues with CloudFlare (images not delivered).

I've setup a dlang mirror that uses Incapsula on http://dlang.dawg.eu.
