Unfortunately, utilizing this meant you couldn't use the cloudflare service without upgrading. I decided to roll my own CDN to speed up my brother's stain glass shop's website. The page load speed dropped by almost 200% and site site feels speedy when browsing now.
After researching many solutions and option I settled on this solution. I didn't want using a CDN to exclude or confuse anyone (or any search engines) looking for our content. The CDN I created is all under our primary domain with canonicals pointing back to the original content to avoid any accidental duplicate content penalties by search engines.
- I created 3 secure CDN sub-domains and choose the free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate in Dreamhost hosting console to serve up our images, fonts, css and js.
- Create soft links to all the Wordpress assets /wp-content and /wp-includes from an SSH session. (ex. ln -s ~/glasshousestore.com/wp-content/ ~/cdn.glasshousestore.com/)
- Create a unique htaccess for the CDN's to handle font headers, canonical headers and redirects to the primary domain.
- Utilize WP Super Cache to rotate serving the various static content through the subdomains. Hope this helps someone to speed up their hard work on the internet.
