    W3 Total Cache and Amazon S3 Cloudfront CDN

    To optimize your wordpress web site, you should seriously consider W3 Total Cache pluginFirst you need to open the Amazon Account

    http://aws.amazon.com


    1) Configure S3
    Create a bucketchoose the closest geographic location, and don't forget to turn off logging option.

    2 ) Configure CloudFrond Create Distribution

    Delivery Method = Download
    Logging OFF
    select your S3 Bucket
    create cnames like

    cdn1.yourdomain.com
    cdn2.yourdomain.com
    cdn3.yourdomain.com
    cdn4.yourdomain.com

    the numbers of cdn and CNAME depends about how complex is your web site, and number of files needing to be downloading to serve a typical pageI suggest to set 4 different max cdn to start.

    once you have validated the steps, you will be able to note down the access of the cloudfront distribution, see the screenshot :

    update your DNS this procedure depends on your hosting service, but basically you just need to use the previous link exemple :
