Last week, we were able to reach an agreement with MaxCDN, one of the largest Content Delivery Networks, to speed up WPBeginner’s load time. We made a few modifications to WPBeginner in terms of site SEO earlier this week. First and foremost, we converted from WP Super Cache to W3 Total Cache. This isn’t to say that WP Super Cache isn’t a useful plugin. It simply indicates that we required something more adaptable and strong at this point in our site’s development.


W3 Total Cache is entirely compatible with MaxCDN, which was one of the key reasons for the transition. A detailed guide on how to use and configure the W3 Total Cache Plugin in combination with Content Delivery Networks will be available soon. W3 Total Cache is more difficult to set up for novices than WP Super Cache. As a result, we urge that you wait until our guide is out next week.


So, what made us pick MaxCDN?

This has to be the burning question on everyone’s mind. We knew we’d have to make this change once our site reached a certain number of users in order to maintain its good performance. MaxCDN is the firm behind popular websites such as Mashable, Template Monster, and BuySellAds. As a result, we knew the company had a good reputation and could be trusted.


Why should you utilize a Content Delivery Network (CDN) on your website?


A content delivery network, also known as a content distribution network (CDN), is a network of computers that store copies of data and are strategically deployed throughout the network to maximize bandwidth for data access by clients. To minimize bottlenecks near the server, a client accesses a copy of the data that is close to the client, rather than all clients accessing the same central server [Wikipedia]. In a nutshell, Content Delivery Network reduces our server burden while speeding up page load times (hence less bandwidth cost). The database is housed on our own server, while all of our photos, theme files, and other JavaScripts are hosted on MaxCDN servers.


We lessen the danger of our site being slowed down with heavy traffic from social media outlets by using a content delivery network like MaxCDN.


So, why is the time it takes for a website to load so significant to you?


The time it takes for your site to load has a big impact on your search engine ranking positions (SERPs). It’s also important for lowering bounce rates and improving average time spent on a website.


Pricing and Coupons for MaxCDN

MaxCDN is currently providing a special LIMITED-TIME deal where you can get 1000GB (1TB) of bandwidth for only $39.95. When compared to other CDN providers, this is a great deal. In addition, we were able to come up with a voucher for you to utilize. You can get a 25% discount on the total price if you use the coupon code “wpbeginner.”


Finally, we’d want to express our gratitude to MaxCDN for collaborating with WPBeginner and accelerating our site for both us and our users.
