Depending on the nature of your website, you may need special features such as additional security capabilities, video or image com- pression, or mobile optimization. Some CDNs may be better suited to provide custom features, so deter- mine your specific needs and dis- cuss them with potential providers. 5. Do you need multiple CDN providers? You may also find yourself needing more than one CDN provider to take advantage of cost savings, better regional coverage, or additional fea- tures. In these cases, an indepen- dent DNS provider can help you load balance your website traffic among multiple CDNs. However, some CDN providers make it difficult to use their CDN without also using their DNS — be careful about choosing a provider that requires you to use their other services because this may limit your ability to create a best‐of‐breed solution. Instead, find a vendor‐ agnostic provider that doesn't lock you into their solution in case your needs change.
