A Content Distribution Network (CDN) is an easy way for busy websites to make their site both faster to load and cheaper to run. And with MaxCDN and the free WordPress plugin W3 Total Cache it also VERY EASY to implement. I’ve been using MaxCDN since April, 2010 … and it was probably just a few months after that I discovered the W3 Total Cache plugin for my WordPress sites.
How a CDN Works
Typically you need to be of a “certain size” to even consider using a CDN, but MaxCDN has packages that start at just $39.95 year, and if you use coupon code “MaxCDNcoupon” you can get 25% off!
*All opinions are my own, and I’ve been paying for MaxCDN services for more than three years, but I was given some free bandwidth as an incentive to write this little blog post. Oh, you should also know that I may make a few bucks if you sign up with MaxCDN using the affiliate links I sprinkled throughout this post.
