How to use a content delivery network (CDN) with WordPress

Using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) with WordPress
At, we recommend using a CDN to improve website performance and speed for your WordPress site. A CDN caches your site's static files (like images, CSS, and JavaScript) on multiple servers around the world. This allows your site's content to be delivered from the server closest to the visitor, reducing latency and load times.
Here are the steps to set up a CDN with your WordPress site:
Choose a CDN Provider There are many CDN providers to choose from, both paid and free options. Some popular choices include:
• Cloudflare (free and paid plans)
• KeyCDN (paid)
• StackPath (paid)
• Amazon CloudFront (paid)
Sign Up and Configure the CDN
• Sign up for an account with your chosen CDN provider
• Follow their instructions to add your WordPress site/domain
• Most CDNs will automatically detect and cache your static files
Update WordPress Settings
• In your WordPress admin dashboard, go to Settings > General
• Change the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) fields to the CDN URL provided
• Save changes
Configure Plugins (Optional) Some caching/performance plugins like W3 Total Cache and WP Rocket have built-in CDN integration. You can configure these plugins to work with your CDN for even better performance.
Benefits of Using a CDN:
• Faster page load times worldwide
• Reduced server load and bandwidth usage
• Improved availability and redundancy
At, we highly recommend using a CDN for any WordPress site to provide a fast, reliable experience for your visitors no matter where they are located.
