concrete5 CDN integration
Concrete5 is an open source content management system designed for publishing content. It was designed for those users who have a minimum technical skill and gives them an opportunity to edit site content directly from the page. This CMS is chosen because:
- You can easily modify and distribute its code without worrying about licensing fees.
- It offers the ability to drag and drop content blocks within a template.
- It possesses loads of SEO tools.
To speed up Concrete5, use a CDN option. Here are some detailed instructions on how to integrate Concrete5 with CDN.

- In the following we are going to integrate a CDN service using its CDN domain 12345.r.cdnsun.net. Please refer to Services/How-To for your CDN domain.
