Next Generation (CDN) Content Delivery Networks
While working to get our site ready for our first product, I’ve been looking for options to speed it up globally without spending a dime, if possible. My first tough was using a regular CDN, but then I realize there is a new & better (in my opinion) way to do it…
You may ask, why?
- Website performance & security at the same time. Your content hosted on could network while getting protected from malicious attacks.
- Simple configuration, they don’t require you to change a thing on your server. Most (if not all) configured by DNS.
- Better SEO than regular CDN networks, no URL rewrites required to serve page assets. All your images stays on your master domain, not on another CDN domain or subdomain of yours.
For the last few days I’ve been testing & benchmarking. So, my next blog entry will be a review on those services.
For the record, there are other similar services but I left them out, because they were either too expensive for my needs or simply not available to test.
