As you already know that I have been using and recommending MaxCDN for quite sometime because it speeds up your website. I was just notice, over at MaxCDN, that they launched a project called Speed Awareness Month. In honor of speed awareness month, they are giving free 1 Terabyte (TB) of Bandwidth. Normally this 1TB lasts about 1 year for most small bloggers. In the past, people have told me that they want to try out the CDN, but don't want to pay the initial fee. Does it have benefits or not? Well, I know that CDN helps me make WPBeginner fast. I also know that fast sites get better SEO rankings.
You have nothing to lose. Simply head on over to MaxCDN's website and signup for your free 1TB account.
This offer is good for the month of August. However, I suggest that you get on with it as soon as possible. I see that they are requiring you to enter your payment information. I asked MaxCDN about it. They told me this is to prevent fraudulent accounts (multiple accounts). You will NOT be charged anything for the 1TB. I know from talking with our users in the past that the 1TB lasted them the whole year. Obviously after it ended, they were in love with the product and saw the value to pay for it.
Using MaxCDN and good code, you can see the screenshot of the fastest load time I got for Pixel2Pixel Design using Pingdom. It normally averages from 2s to 3.5s depending on which datacenter you use.
Google has already said time to time that fast sites have an advantage in search engines. CDNs help a lot with speed. I'm certain that you want to try this on your site.

Once you have signed up, then follow this instructions on how to install and setup MaxCDN in WordPress.
I hope that you guys will take advantage of this offer. Have fun with a faster website. I always love hearing people's feedback about the differences. In the past, I have seen up to 300% increase in load time from some users. Let me know your thoughts.
