Best Content Delivery Network (CDN) ProvidersHaving a fast loading website is key. Numerous studies have shown that the faster your site loads, the less likely people are to bounce and the more likely they are to interact with your site whether that be reading your content, adding comments or posts, or making a purchase. The problem is that regardless of how much work you do to optimize your code, images, databases, and server to maximize speed, you are at the mercy of the network between the service your site is hosted on and the end user. This may not make much of a difference if the distance is short, but if the person accessing your site is a continent away, the time it takes to load and render your website may be many times longer when compared to accessing the site locally.
A content delivery network (CDN) helps speed up your website in part by shortening the distance between the person visiting your site and the server delivering the content. Your site, or at least some of the elements of your site are distributed and cached on servers across the globe. That way, whether someone is accessing your site from Australia, China, the U.S. or the U.K., they are able to load your content from a local server instead of having to wait for it to be provided by your origin server. This can have a significant impact on load times while also reducing the strain on your hosting server. This can also save you on bandwidth costs.
Almost all of the top online retailers, banks, portals, brokers, etc., make use of a CDN. And with the range of options and pricing plans available today (including free services), a content delivery network is something that just about every webmaster should look into.
To help you get started, here is a list of the top ten best commercial content delivery networks.
The Top Ten
Easy, very fast to implement, no re-coding required, and doesn't need to fully hijack your domain for it to work.
The real plus with Incapsula is that it has a well integrated, non-third party WAF and DDoS mitigation service. When CDN offering have become so homogenous, this detail sets them apart.Visit Website9
The CDN77 has the best performance/price ratio from all of these CDNs listed a above. They have outstanding coverage around the whole world. They have also pay as you go service. And lots of world brand customers...
CDN77 is the best "reachable" solution, however Akamai and CDNnetwork is just still somewhere else. If you can't afford 5 figure monthly payment for these CDNs choose CDN77.
It is a dynamic company, quite professional. They helped me perfectly understand the functioning of the CDNs and set mine up in record time.
They add new functionalities to the control panel every time, they respect 100% maintenance periods (they have never affected the CDN itself, but the control panel).
The ease of configuration is very high, allowing you to choose the servers that you want to activate.
The price is one of the best on the market, I always have a perfectly reliable estimate of costs a few weeks in advance.
Finally, the team is excellent. I have always obtained very good support by email in a matter of minutes, for any doubt or incidence.
If all goes well, I will continue with CDN77 for a long time!
With CDN77 you get very good quality for the lower price than is usual on this market. I also appreciate their individual approach of communication with the customer. Very nice!
My opinion is that they have really great support and pricing.V 33 Comments Visit Website9
If you can afford it, they are the best. This is the company behind FaceBook and other massive global web properties. In fact, Akamai claims to deliver between 15-30% of all Web traffic. If you have a need for a top notch CDN, and the capital to pay for it, then it makes sense to join the 96 out of the 100 top online retailers in the U.S. that rely on Akamai.
Akamai is the market leader in content delivery. The FIFA 2014 has been an excellent display of the flawless service Akamai provides.
Great performance - but customer service is taking a hit and their constant product changes don't help.V 3 Comments Visit Website9
Having been an IT Director for the last decade and having worked with a number of CDN vendors I can honestly say that from a global performance stand point CDNetworks are peerless. Despite being cheaper than the market leader.
Edward Ho, CIO
Better reach, availability, and performance than any of the other CDN's. They are the only other viable alternative choice to Akamai. CDNetworks is in China as well with Dynamic and Static acceleration.
CDNetworks are ahead of the curve in the CDN market, and still the only network to be able to deliver dynamic web content in the largest retail market of the world - China.
It is frankly no question that small giant is the one to watch over the forthcoming years.
David Sanchez, CTO
I used to work with CD Networks when Korean government supported to launch online gaming global service platform (GSP) with its web site, W. Gamengame. Com.
As the director for that program, I was in the position to choose which service we apply. In fact, we used Akamai for the first 3 months, but soon we switched to CDNetworks.
We needed flexibilities in using the contents downloading infra-structure, and CDNetworks knew our needs and satisfied us.
If you consider CDN regardless of your cost, then you have several options.
But if you want to meet a CDN open to your requirement,
CDNetworks will be the best. David Kim / MarkAny
Akamai is great for the big boys, but for the rest of us who can't justify a 5 figure monthly payment for our CDN, CloudFlare is a great solution. At no charge, CloudFlare will provide their basic level CDN, DNS, Always Online service, web page optimization, and website security features. Then, for only $20 per month, you can have this service expanded with higher priority performance, mobile optimization, and near real time stats. And if you need even more, CloudFlare offers advanced web optimization for dynamic content, and advanced DDoS mitigation.
The best one out there. Helped me a lot for my small websites.
Use this service with all my websites can fault them the sites all increased in performance

Best CDN provider I have ever had!
The CDNsun has very good prices and with them you pay as you go. They have an extensive network and they provide help with integration of CDN. They also provide Shared SSL for free as well as free trial.
They have a very large CDN network and in my humble opinion the best PAYG prices.V 3 Comments Visit Website9

Amazon don't even use Amazon Cloudfront for their CDN! That shows you how much they value their own CDN
Works well, very affordable
It's a good server provider
Just great and the most cheap of the listVisit Website9
Highest performing CDN in all regions of the globe
They are far from #2 and would be lucky to be in top 10 today. Unless something changes they will be bought out or will never make it. If they get rid of Kurt Silverman, there may be hope.
Professional and no fine print

SpaceCDN gave me the choice of several powerful providers, helped me with that choice. The prices of this company are very friendly and they are ready to satisfy in general every need of every client. What I liked was the individual approach to me and to my requirements and ability to help me in a very short time.
SpaceCDN is the company of my choice. It suited me for several reasons but the main reason for me was the pay as you go model. They did not make me pay anything in advance and I was able to make my own opinion whether I like their service or not. I liked it a lot and will go on using it.
When I began thinking about using CDN service, I was not sure how much traffic I need, what provider is better for my project. SpaceCDN provided the needed assistance to me and helped me a lot. They have useful info on their website, and even more they are ready to help whenever the help is needed.
Thank you so much for helping me to find the best cost CDN covering all necessary regions. SpaceCDN is definitely worth working with!
Doing research showed that there are only a few companies with good performance in China. ChinaNetCenter clearly ranked #1 in size, speed and availability and our POC with the top 3 showed the same. Pleased to work with them.
