How Can a Checker for Content Delivery Networks Benefit Your Business?
A CDN (Content Delivery Network) is an important component of any website’s performance optimization. It speeds up content delivery by serving requests from the users’ closest locations. A CDN Checker can be performed using either online tools or a manual checker. CDN Finder and What’s My CDN? are the two most popular online tools for checking CDNs.
How to Use a CDN Finder?
CDN Find – CDN Planet’s CDN Finder will tell you which CDN provider is being used on a specific website or domain name.
What is the name of my CDN? – What’s My CDN is useful if you are using Multi-CDN strategies and want to know which one is being used by region or country. Multi CDN, in case you didn’t know, is a permission that allows you to use the fastest CDN provider based on your location for optimal performance. It searches for the entire domain that was used to load the website and maps it to the appropriate CDN provider.
Manually – If the above tools don’t produce the desired results, you can search for it manually. It will take some time and effort, but you will succeed.
To begin, you must determine the domain’s IP address. To obtain the IP address, you can use any of the tools listed below. The next step is to use online tools to locate the IP owner.
Learning how to check if your CDN is installed and operational can help you save time and ensure that the integration process went smoothly. This is a simple procedure that requires little in the way of tools or time. This guide will walk you through how to check if your CDN is working properly for your application.
To see if a CDN is integrated, use CDN Checker.
You should check if the CDN has been properly integrated with your site after you’ve carefully followed each step of the integration process for your CMS or framework. There are a few options for accomplishing this. To begin, note which URL you used during the integration process: was it the default Zone URL (for example, lorem-1c6b.kxcdn.com) or did you create a Zone Alias? (e.g. cdn.yourwebsite.com). This is crucial because you’ll need to look for this URL in the methods that follow:
Running a site speed test is the first step in determining if your CDN is integrated with your site. Select a location from which to run it, and then examine the URLs of your site’s static assets.
Examining the page source of your site is the second way to see if your CDN is integrated. Simply right-click on your page in Google Chrome and select “View Page Source.” This will open a new window with all of your site’s HTML.
CDN Checker is a tool that determines if a CDN is caching content.
You’ll want to double-check that the CDN is delivering cached content as expected after you’ve confirmed that it’s properly integrated into your site. The CDN may not properly cache your content in some cases (such as when there is no content-length header present), resulting in an X-Cache: MISS. Although the CDN will be integrated, it will not help you improve your speed if this is the case.
Check the HTTP headers of one of your static assets to see if it is returning an HIT response to ensure your CDN is caching content. In the case of KeyCDN, we use the X-Cache header, as previously mentioned. You may need to reload the content a few times to ensure the CDN is returning an HIT response. Use one of the following methods to confirm this:
On one of your assets, run a cURL command.
Then, run a site speed test and double- or triple-check the X-cache response header.
Regardless of which method you use, make sure to run the cURL command or the site speed test a few times to ensure that the static asset is properly cached and delivered by the edge server. This is critical, especially since the asset has never been requested since the CDN was integrated.
