CDNs are a direct way to speed up your website, but sometimes it’s hard to see the exact performance difference, especially if you have a new and old site running simultaneously. Not any more!We’ve built tools.maxcdn.com to make side-by-side performance differences a snap:
There’s many services out there that ping a single domain and measure the latency from different locations. We’ve gone a step further and let you compare performance for two domains, great for testing different environments or seeing how your site does against a competitor. In addition to a Ping Test, we have also added a HTTP Speed Test that compares the first and last bytes of two websites.
There’s a table with latency results from around the world (14 locations at the time of this post), along with a roll-up summary at the end. What are you waiting for? Run a performance comparison on your website today!
PS. For the nerds in the audience, we’ll be explaining the tech architecture in a follow-up post.
