What do you like best?

- Incredible support staff available 24/7

- Edge scripts are like cloudflare workers and are better than lambda@edge

- 100% free SSL's unlike Fastly

- 100 additional domains per site, unlike Cloudfront's ten

- Ability to set cache keys from the origin for easy cache clearing

- Good speed (TTFB globally of < 50ms for me) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I can think of is the lack of auto image optimization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have a multi-tenant application where customized user's content needs to be delivered at the edge. That means I need to allow for an arbitrary number of domains to connect to my service AND keep ultra-low latency (so a single origin doesn't cut it). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Had hoped to realize reduced load times for website Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Terrible inane UI for cancelling, tried cancelling several times and getting nowhere - then got billed again, they make it's incredibly frustrating to cancel. It also did little to speed up my site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Really cheap shot -- when a SAS company makes it hard to cancel we all know why. Very disappointed with STACKPATH. It also did little to speed up my site. No real benefits Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Affordability and response. They are quite affordable and chat response that could help you to solve L1 problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Service. The pathetic service. Frequent downtime, and that too for hours. Their infra team takes hours, even half a day, to resolve their network problem. Their unstable network causes frequent downtime, which not only makes you lose business but have an adverse effect on your Google ranking as well, bringing damages for a very long time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially, I was a happy customer. However, for the last few months, they have completely lost the mojo. I opted for their service to improve my site load time, accessibility and search ranking. Instead, frequent downtime, hours of server unavailability and the less skilled team failed me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is spectacular as MaxCDN is a content delivery network (CDN) provider, based in Los Angeles, California. The company emphasizes reducing latency of rich-content delivery. MaxCDN maintains regional edge servers where customer files are replicated in multiple locations around the world. Dynamic routing logic instructs the end-user's browser to display a copy of the MaxCDN customer's rich-content files, from the location in nearest proximity to the end-user.

MaxCDN hosts Nginx servers in Europe, North America and Asia; MaxCDN utilizes Anycast stateless routing for one-to-nearest content delivery over multiple 10 Gbit/s connections Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

maxcdn is one of the best cdns you will find out there. It packs with everything one could need in terms of content delivery, i did not know much about cdns but maxcdn made it easy from the begining and their free trial is awesome as it includes almost all the features as if you were a paid user. This let's you first experience what you are going to buy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's little to dislike about maxcdn, when others make something that's overly superior then i thinks we would have another point of reference, but at the moment maxcdn is one of the points of reference of what a cdn should do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try, use the trial and play with all the options avaliable, there's always new features to discover. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Asset management and caching is the main reason we use maxcdn for. It supercharges any website and makes things load faster because you only have to worry about your html and little other thing to be handled by your webserver. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

MAXCDN's speed is fast and price is reasonable. They are not the fastest CDN in a particular region, but is all top 5 of all regions in 9GAG own benchmark. MAXCDN gives you enough flexibility to control your CDN behaviors, that is helpful for DevOps team. The dashboard the clear and realtime. Their priority-support team is quite good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They never get 100% SLA. MAXCDN always has some tiny incidents from some POPs (Ef, AU/EU). They will reroute your traffic to nearest POP, but during that time, the latency increased. You may need to create your own monitoring process by using some other services, as their NOC team found problem late sometime. Their price of South America is not cheap. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need a global balanced CDN, no need very high bandwidth support. MAXCDN should be a good choice Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

9GAG needs a Global CDN which can provide fast services / full controllable / reasonable price / five nine SLA / flexible enterprise contract .. We runs our own benchmark on 8 CDN providers, MAXCDN is the overall good and balanced one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

MaxCDN configuration is simple. It would be great to have more configuration options or ways to invalidate assets.

What do you like best?

I would have to say the personal service available when you need it. Their CDN service is excellent or course, but if you can't get it configured correctly it doesn't help. I found that MaxCDN always has someone to talk or chat with to get even less-technical people up and going quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They have made strides in simplifying their UI in recent years, but it can still be intimidating. I would recommend they build an even simpler one - maybe sort of a get started wizard or sorts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try a quality plugin to handle the CDN handshake - wp-rocket, W3 Cache, or Super-Cache. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Speed - it is very, very important on the web these days. Our main line of business in conversion optimization. The very first thing we do with a client site is get it running on MaxCDN. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Maxcdn is one of the best cdn services out there, it offers everything you need at a reasonable cost. It also does not act a proxy like other CDNS so it won't block things you don't want to be blocked. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One thing we dislike is that it does not have a free plan but a trial version, sometimes one has minor sites which could need a bit of cdn boost, but you don't want to pay because it does not make you any money, well in that case we have CloudFlare. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use the trial version and you will get a very complete experience of what the paying version will be. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Content caching, speeding sites up, attack protection. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The trial version forces you to use a credit card, while other cdn services offer limited features service free. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love how easily they integrate with existing web frameworks / platforms. I'm a WordPress developer by trade, and I've never had an issue getting it tied into a site for whatever reason it's being used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Honestly, I've not hit any real negatives. There could be a better stand-alone plugin for WP, but that's not a huge issue for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Clients that have image heavy sites don't want to load up their server with the images, and also don't want the performance hit that often comes with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

MaxCDN is very well documented service. You can setup a CDN solution within a short time period. Just login to their website. You can choose out of a lot of custom functions, e.g. protect your content from hot-linking or seperate your content into different buckets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

MaxCDN is a nearly complete CDN solution and as said, you can choose from a lot of option to setup. You can setup a secure https CDN, but it's very expensive if you want to use your own domain name and custom certificates. And they don't integrate free certificates from Let's encrypt like others do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
