Do you know what CDNs (Content Delivery Network) are used for?

Well if it's not the case, then you will discover while reading this tutorial that using a CDN only has advantages for your blog. And if you simply do not know which solution to choose, then know that in this tutorial, I will introduce 5 CDN that you can use for your WordPress blog.

1. CloudFlare

CloudFlare-Data-Centers

It is certainly one of the most used CDNs today and it is also the best performing in my opinion. Cloudflare is free to use. And thanks to its network of servers around the world, it allows all your visitors to consult it without feeling the distance from the servers. Better yet, in addition to protecting your website, it also offers the possibility of displaying your site even when your server (at your host) encounters problems.

Cloudflare offers a free unlimited option that I invite you to test.

I invite you to read the tutorial that was written on this CDN in order to understand how to install it on your WordPress blog.

2. Photon

Photon is a CDN service for all sites hosted on WordPress.com and also available for self-hosted WordPress blogs.

Since images are part of the slow-motion elements of a blog, using Photon will serve your images from WordPress.com, which may reduce the loading time of these images.

The service is extremely easy to use, all you need to do is access your JetPack dashboard and activate the Photon extension.

3. JsDelivr

Most WordPress blogs use JavaScript in one way or another. In reality there are plugins that are dependent on JavaScript. By using JsDelivr, which is also a free CDN, you can host your various JavaScript files.

  1. Hello,

    Thank you for sharing. As Pierre pointed out, the CloudFlare CDN does not work correctly with the Let's Encrypt certificate, if you can enlighten us on the subject, that would be good :).

    cordially

  2. Thank you for sharing. Do you know which CDNs will offer the use of a self-signed SSL certificate (Let's Encrypt)? Because that's not possible with Cloudflare, unfortunately.
