How to use CDN to prevent visitors from reaching your server?
Does anyone have any experience with CDN? I have been struggling with traffic spikes lately, which would overload Apache/MySQL and kill the server.
To dip my toes into CDN I have been using CloudFlare’s free service, but this hasn’t prevented traffic spikes from killing my server.
I have been reading about assigning a separate domain for static content i.e. images … would this help ease server load? Where can I find more information how to set this up?
Appreciate your help. For reference, the website I am referring to is ASTIG.PH.
