Free CDN Services For Loading Your Blog Faster

Free CDN Services For Loading Your Blog Faster

Comments: 1


The concept of CDN (Content Delivery Network or content distribution network) is not clear to the most newbie. Even some blogger don’t know why do you need this? It is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers in the Internet. CDN do deliver content partially or entirely of your website from their server instead of from your web hosting server which will make your site loading faster because the content is deliver from a server closer to the visitor. CDNs serve a large fraction of the Internet content today, including web objects (text, graphics, URLs and scripts), downloadable objects (media files, software, documents), applications (e-commerce, portals), live streaming media, on-demand streaming media, and social networks. In case of Blog user most of them want to host their .js or .css file to another CDN hosting site. Because it makes your blog loading faster because the content is deliver from a server that is close to the visitors.

Suppose your blog is hosted in US then your blog will load faster for those visitors who live is near USA. Fundamentally CDN has great effect to make your blog load faster for international visitors from around the world. By CDN you will have many mirrors of you blog all over in a global network. If your blog is made for global audience then you must consider CDN. However, if your blog’s target group is local audience with local content or product then maybe you don't need CDN.

Still you can consider to use CDN for caching, minifying, hotlinking guard, parallel request, and security. Some bloggers are using CDN but even then didn’t noticed that you may already using certain type of CDN in a minor scale.

For example if you have installed some bookmarking services that provided from or, You won’t find any image file code from those but it load from respected bookmarking site that already deliver from global CDNs instead of directly from their server.
Even Pinterest providing their services from CDN server.

Google Network

There is an application named Google Code that work totally on CDN based. Google Apps for CDN service uses D-I-Y method which involves creating a sub-domain and then put the JavaScript, images, css files etc to the sub-domain so those files will be delivered from the subdomain. It is a technique to create parallel downloading when requested by internet browser to make the website loading faster. You have to do a lot of work to do compare with other method because Google Apps is combination of a dozen of apps. Bit confusing for new blogger so they skip this to use another services because you need to download developer files first to create the apps.
