How to use CDN to make site faster (5 posts)

    I site is quite slow as I have quite a few images on each page and other issues that I don't know how to fix.
    I read that CDN can be used to make it faster.
    How do I do this?
    Does it really work?
    I host at Bluehost today but don't mind moving if there is another host that offers this service.

    Much of that slowness may be fixable by adding caching and some other optimization tips, without having to pay extra for a CDN. There are several posts about these things here on the forums.

    I suggest using W3TC for WordPress caching and optimization and use CloudFlare as a CDN. CloudFlare will protect your website from attacks and spam while speeding up your website by caching it and serving it from multiple data centers around the world. Their new, growing, and their basic service is free.

    I am on Hostgator.. and last month they have taken my website off the net for more than 5 times with allegation of extra CPU usage :(

    I am now running the website while disabling many plugins (refered by hostgator as possible source of problem) and using caching plugin W3 Total Cache.

    Even still ChotoCheeta.com -> my website feels to be loading really slow and I am now forced to think for hosting switch :(

    You don't have to switch hosts! Hostgator offers built in CloudFlare support through cPanel. It cut my cpu and bandwidth usage by more than half, and it sped up my website. Seriously, look at it.
