Example 2 - No CDN

page load time:

This example and the CDN example both contain the same test components: five scripts, one stylesheet, and eight images. In this example all of these test components are coming from a single server.

Load this page several times and compare the median response time to the CDN example. The results vary depending on your geographic location and Internet connection. Generally the CDN example is 15-20% faster than the No CDN example. | contact SteveGreyhound, the 2nd fastest land animalThis is the companion website for High Performance Web Sites by Steve Souders.
