How Do I Choose The Right CDN For My Site/Business?
Choosing the right CDN for your website can be a confusing and challenging task. You need CDN servers to speed up the website page load times and respond faster to visitor requests. You have to consider a few factors before choosing the CDN.
You have to be clear on what you want the CDN for- the type of content you intend to deliver, who the end user is and any customized requirements you may have for, do you want to upload files via FTP or purge all via API etc.
CDNs are deployed to boost up the speed. You have to know how fast a CDN will deliver the files you upload to your visitors. Along with the latency times, you also need to know the power capabilities of the servers. Even if you are close to your visitor if the server is not powerful you may not have the desired speed and performance.
Another crucial requirement is the support. You need a provider who is available 24x7x365 via email, phone or chat. Consider the costs too. Prices differ from one provider to another. Look for providers who offer custom plans and tailor their services to suit your requirements.
