Things to Remember when Choosing a CDN

Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

While large E-commerce stores and tech giants have already moved to the latest hit trend in the tech world, the CDNs, newbies and smaller website owners are still debating to make a move. One thing, which is unanimously accepted is that Content Delivery Network or CDN have wholly revolutionized how websites are hosted.

They have a direct impact on user experience, improved speed, better search engine optimization and better website traffic management among other things.

If you have already decided to make a switch to a CDN service and ditch the traditional hosting methods, you are on the right track.

The next million dollar question is how to choose the best CDN service Since CDN comes with a hefty price tag and there are a plethora of CDN service providers, making the right choice can become a bit tricky especially if you are new to this. If you are beginning your hunt for a great CDN service, here are a few tips that will help you out.


One of the key deciding factors in choosing a CDN is the performance factor. Remember that the main reason why you need to get a CDN service for your website is to improve the performance and efficiency of your site so that the user experience can be enhanced.

Therefore, it is essential that the performance of your CDN is on point to support the traffic and data management on your website. Most CDNs offer a number of analytical reports related to bandwidth, user throughput, data transfer and data completion, which you can use to evaluate the performance of the CDN.

Other than that there are other various analytical tools such as Traffic Analyzer that can help you make a better choice.

One of the biggest reason why many people are reluctant to invest in CDNs is the price factor. CDNs tend to have a more substantial price tag compared to traditional hosting services.

However, that does not mean that there are not relatively cheaper options available. If you do your research right, you will be able to find a great CDN service that suits your requirements in the best possible price.  There are some platforms available that you can use for CDN comparison to find yourself a fantastic deal.


Data security is one of the primary concern for both website owners and their owners. In the recent past, there have been many cases where data was breached, and confidential user information such as bank account and credit card details were leaked online. Therefore, when choosing a CDN for yourself pay attention to the security protocols that your CDN service provider is offering.

Customer Testimonials

One of the best ways to make any buying decision in an informed manner is to take insight from existing or former users of a service. When you are considering to buy a CDN service from a particular service provider, try and look for first-hand customer reviews and go through as many of them as possible.

Since some service providers also plant paid surveys online so do not limit your research to a few reports but instead go through as many testimonials as you can on many different platforms.
