Summary of this Tutorial:

Start by creating a MaxCDN account.

Then to use it you will need to install W3 Total Cache.

Now you will need to login to your MaxCDN account and create a “Pull Zone” which will be your site.

With the zone created you will want to copy the url of your CDN for later use.

Click “manage” on your zone and add multiple subdomains so you can improve the pipelining performance.

Update ad ensure your compression is set to GZip.

In your cPanel go to “Simple DNS Zone Editor” and add CNAME records for each custom domain.

On your site enable W3 Total Cache, go to Settings and set CDN to MaxCDN.

Add your API ID, API Key, and custom domain names.
