  • Cloudflare is probably the better CDN right now. I have used KeyCDN but was forced to move back to Cloudflare.

    I wrote an installation guide on Cloudflare as well (wpblog.com/configure-cloudflare-cdn-on-wordpress/) because I think that people should start using CDNs rather than just reading about them.
