I started Bloggermint four years back with Blogger. The reason for choosing Blogger at the time was purely because I wasn’t making money, so I thought its better to stick with Blogger for sometime. After some months I made some good money from Blogging and thoughts of moving to WordPress. As soon as I moved to WordPress, I experienced an increase in load time which is quite obvious with WordPress. And like everyone I installed some cache plugin (personally I used W3 TotalCache for my blog) but still the performance wasn’t that good when compared to Blogger. I know its not fair to compare Blogger and WordPress, however loading time has an impact on the search engine ranking.
So why MaxCDN?
Affordable Price and Quality
On May 2011, I designed and programmed a custom HTML5 WordPress theme for Bloggermint. Since I am so concerned about the loading time, I purchased a MaxCDN account for $39 (1TB/year). The moment after configuring MaxCDN with W3 TotalCache plugin, I could see some good changes in loading time. You may ask, there are so many CDN services and why MaxCDN? Well, MaxCDN is one of the affordable and trusted CDN service backed by NetDNA.
Support is the next big thing for any product. Without a good customer support, there won’t be a good product. I personally found their support way too good and their technicians are well trained to answer your questions. In the last year, I just got one issue and even that is regarding billing.
Moreover there are hundreds of tutorials written by bloggers to active CDN service for blog and websites. So won’t get a chance to contact their support :p
Website’s receiving over hundreds and thousands of views require more than 5TB of CDN even that has to renewed often. If you’re a MaxCDN user, you will be getting offers every month. For an average user 1TB is more than sufficient for 8 to 10 months (depending upon kind of blog) and sometimes if your “lucky” you can renew the next 1TB at a discount price.
