  1. Hi Sai,

    I don’t recommend anyone to use Cloudflare. I’ve had bad experience with them.

    When I setup cloudflare. It started working perfect but just after few hours site got slow and my blog readers was not able to view.

    So, I just removed it. Instead I am using Super Cache plugin and CDN service. 😀

  12. Hi Sai,

    I totally agree with you that MaxCDN is the best option. I’ve been using their service for a couple of months now and it greatly improved my website’s performance.

    I was using Cloudflare’s free service before that and although it doesn’t compare with paid services it still did a great job with lowering my website’s loading time.
    Haven’t yet tested Amazon’s service but I also heard a lot of good things about it.

  17. Thanks for writing this useful article. When i was new to blogging, I usually participate in all giveaways and use it for my blogs if I win. Like that I won the MAX CDN also for 1 year. Really I didn’t know the use of it or how to use. But later on winning it only I came to the worth of using it in a blog.

    So it is always a good tool for the bloggers to use the CDN network for their blogs mainly for increasing the loading speed.

  18. Hi there!

    Thanks for writing. Nice to know :)

    I uses CloudFlare at the moment (free account) since I yet to hit 1k traffic per day. I believe paid CDNs are much better but only useful when you are running high traffic blogs. Moderate traffic blogs (and small blogs like mine) could easily run without a CDN or with free CDNs like Cloudflare and Incapsula.

    Nonetheless, if you ask me, I still prefer having at least a free CDN for protection :) Moreover it’s free right?

    I enjoyed your writing and keep it up!

  19. Love CloudFlare and it’s free service. I do recommend that if you have low budget.
    In addition, you can use CloudFront if you have small site and you are still hungry for acceleration.
