The performance of your WordPress sites has and always will remain one of the top priorities for us. Because of that, we have partnered up with KeyCDN, a content delivery network, to turbocharge your assets around the globe. A big reason we chose KeyCDN, is because their mission closely aligns with that of ours here at Kinsta. KeyCDN is non-federated and was one of the first CDN providers in the industry to launch HTTP/2 support, free SSL with Let’s Encrypt, and many other features. They are always proactive about ensuring they use the latest and greatest technology, just as we are.
KeyCDN’s content delivery architecture was built from the ground up with a focus on high-performance, designed for high throughput and low latency. When enabled, your content will be delivered and cached from their 25 POPs around the globe. They also automatically help protect against bad bots as well as check all the boxes when it comes to industry standards such as GZIP and HPACK compression.
We are including a generous amount of free CDN bandwidth for both new and current clients. See included bandwidth below:
Check out our post on how a CDN works and why you should be using one. In our experience, a CDN typically can help offload 70% of bandwidth requests from your web host and in some cases reduce load times by up to 50%! The KeyCDN integration is now available within the MyKinsta dashboard. And just like with our other tools, it is a simple one-click process.
This integration, of course, is optional. If you are already using another CDN solution such as Cloudflare, Sucuri, CloudFront, or StackPath, you can continue to do so, or switch over to our solution.
