Simple and powerful

KeyCDN By Eugene on September 13th

They have tons of features (HTTP2, Instant Purge, Origin Shield and others), a lot of security protection (Custom SSL, Hotlink Protection, DDoS), and variety of integration with almost all popular CMS. My experience with KeyCDN is more than positive - it is excellent! The dashboard is pretty simple and there are lots of guides and articles in their knowledge base. I've contacted their support several times and I am satisfied with the support level. Will recommend KeyCDN to all my friends.

KeyCDN was really easy to implement. The live statistics in the dashboard provide valuable insights. The pricing is really great, especially in Asia. Their support was always available if there was anything. I don't have anything to complain.

KeyCDN By Gil Bevan on June 22nd

We are using KeyCDN since more than a year and it was awesome to see how they are constantly developing new stuff. One important feature we require is origin shield and SPDY. The support is also very response and they know what they are doing. Highly recommended.
