BlazingCDN Review 2020

Introduction to CDN

Content Delivery Networks are getting more and more popular nowadays. In 2019 the market was valued at USD 11.76 billion, while in 2025, it is expected to reach USD 49.61 billion. What is it actually? CDN is a group of servers all around the world that caches the static content on your site and delivers it to your visitors from the server, which is located nearest to the specific user. Those servers are so-called points of presence (PoP), so the more of them, the better.

Nowadays, reducing the loading time of the website became very important for almost everyone, as even 1-sec of improvement can help increase conversions. 


Benefits of using CDN

First, and mentioned previously, is speed. It gives benefits in all aspects from Customer’s experience to Google indexing, as having a fast website, which loads fast and without any troubles, will be promoted by Google more. 

Secondly, as your website is fast enough, then you will notice a lower bounce rate. Isn’t it fun? You do not have to change the content, design sophisticated landing pages, etc. 

Last but not least, CDN providers help to protect your website and your content. This means that you shouldn’t be afraid that you will lose it, as it is all the time stored somewhere.

BlazingCDN offers two types of pricing. The first one is pay as you go, and correct me if I am wrong, but they are the only one who offers a flat fee for the whole globe - $0.005 per GB.

BlazingCDN- what’s more?

They have an affiliate program as well! It is not that common in this industry, so I think it is worth to mention that they offer 20% from each invoice, and the payment is recurring! If you are a blogger or an active participant of Facebook groups dedicated to WordPress, then the affiliate program might be useful for you. It is very easy to start. You have to log in to BlazingCDN panel and generate your own referral link.
