Tutorial Released for Joomla CDN Implementation with MaxCDN
September 29, 2010 | David Henzel
Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. MaxCDN supports Joomla, through their Joomla CDN which is powered by the Joomla CDN Plugin. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone. Since Joomla is such a widely used CMS, the need to implement it with a CDN is obvious. Here at maxCDN we want to make this integration as simple as possible for our customers so we teamed up with Peter Van Westen to create an easy to use plugin called TopCDN. Mr Westen is notorious among the Joomla community and currently has the top two ranked extensions on the Joomla website. You can visit his website here.
It is very easy to implement the TopCDN Plugin for Joomla with MaxCDN. It is just a 3 step process and should take you less than five minutes!
- Create a Pull Zone for Your Website
- Install the TopCDN Extension on Your Site
- Copy the URL for Your Pull Zone into the TopCDN Settings
Using a CDN can have several benefits for your Joomla website, including the following:
- Much faster page load times
- Greatly reduced load on your server
- Higher SEO Rankings
- An overall smoother and more pleasant experience for your users
We will be adding more tutorials soon, so stay tuned!
