Do you even CDN bro?
To cut a long story short I am curious how many people use a CDN and if another CDN would be welcome...

"I lost local sites, my LEB is all I need!" is meant to be host not lost.
cdn can actually be a lot helpful without you realising it if implemented properly
That it can, I am curious as to how people are implementing it and if there is space for another CDN.
I use cloudflare's CDN because of the additional DDOS protection that is provided.
Was it the DDoS protection you went for and the CDN was a bonus or?
I like that the CDN reduces traffic to my server, but my sites aren't popular enough for that to really matter in my opinion.
Cloudflare just makes things slower and less reliable.
I use cloudflare, even if sometimes is having hickups. Bit, generally, it works well, offers DDoS protection (even a small one) and use it also for it DNS capabilities
I haven't had that experience.
Same here, works fine.
Actually, looking at a few at this moment and found the fastest to the regions I need to be covered. Price point it's not bad, either.
Yes. I use Google Applications as a CDN for my Wordpress.
I'm currently using the OnApp CDN. The other day it went down though and still isn't working. I'm thinking about moving to another one (maybe Amazon S3 or Cloudfront)
Self-Hosted CDN was always my aim, i voted for it
However not have time yet to implement it correctly. Still ahead!
I use CDNify - but will be moving at the end of the year/end of my current quota. They switched from billing in blocks to monthly billing, and limited the number of zones.
I don't push a ton of bandwidth each month, but like having fast loading sites - and I have a ton of little sites. Looking at maybe KeyCDN when my quota is up, ~0.04/GB - so most months I'd only be paying $1.5-$3.
Have you found any existing software to set it all up? I'm in the process of building my own GhettoCDN™ for large files (video podcasts), so have a couple small dedi's and storage VPS's. Currently just doing it with manual upload, rsync'ing it all up, and then GeoDNS to pick the best server for the user.
Pagespeed / Incapsula / Cloudflare for me
keycdn is great for low bandwidth sites, the thing I dont like from them is it takes 50~700 ms for dns queries for their zones.
Self hosted - a small army of nginx-rtmp-module servers for streaming events.
Need a good hosted CDN tutorial!
Hi @mikeyur, I'm Jamie from CDNify - Couldn't help but jump in on this to explain a few things.
Firstly, really glad you gave our service a try. We decided to change to monthly/yearly payments due to scalability and moving onto our own platform, something we couldn't do on the previous one and with the previous business model.
Now we have complete freedom to build features everyone wants, which we feel is a great direction to step in - Although, it’s important to stress that this is not a decision we have taken lightly, we even added an affordable plan of $10/m to help out those that don't use a lot of data.
Hopefully I've not ranted for too long ^^^, but if you decide to stay or if anyone's looking to get started with a CDN then use promo code AWESOMESPEED20 to get 20% off any plan.
Well based on feedback in this thread I have something I am working on, depending how tests goes it might be opened up to the public...
Also to those that asked I will be writing a blog post about it and how it has been built.
If that's your opinion that means you're doing something terribly wrong.
It's 5% true & 95% False
I do have Commercial & Freebies CDN. @wych Why no Free CDN listed as an option?
Right, I have something put together in beta.
If you want to test it feel free to PM me.
Is a CDN like some sort of drug? I'd like to grow my own if so?
You're special you know that don't you?
I do, For 2.6MB in Images 900MS is pretty good to load it (Pingdom)
