In the performance admin panel:
High Performance Web Sites: YSlow Rule 2 – Use a Content Delivery Network
New in Tiki5 in the Performance admin panel, you can pick a Content Delivery Network for static images and jQuery code.
Without any server configuration, you can from the admin panel, pick Google as the CDN for your jQuery files.
You can also use Amazon CloudFront.
With a little server configuration, you can also use your own server as a CDN.
- Make your server have two domains (ex.: tiki.org and cdn.tiki.org)
- This can be done using “parked domains” (not add-on) on shared hosting
- Enter your CDN (ex: cdn.tiki.org)
If you are already on a sub-domain, it could be doc.tiki.org and cdn.doc.tiki.org
This will improve your YSLOW scores if you tell your YSlow that cdn.doc.tiki.org is in the official list of CDNs.
- New for 16.1
- As of 2016-12-13, there is no option for NGINX.
Note: CoralCDN is more designed for larger files. You won’t necessarily get faster performance. This being said, it’s great to use as a test.
Coral is a free peer-to-peer content distribution network, comprised of a world-wide network of web proxies and nameservers. http://www.coralcdn.org/
To use, put as CDN:
where “tiki.org” is indeed replaced with your real domain.
Then, some of the static content like images and css/js files will be delivered by the coral network.
