Using a CDN is incredibly easy - much more so than some of the other tips. NetDNA have a very cheap and easy to use solution for smaller sites called MaxCDN. It's around $40 for a year or 1000GB whichever happens first (various discounts around). This allows two types of CDN to be setup: pull (i.e. you just give your site a new name (e.g. images-origin.damieng.com) and make MaxCDN the old name (images.damieng.com) and tell it what you named your origin and it does all the magic. push - this basically acts as an FTP/SFTP server you upload files to directly. It's best used for larger downloads where the time it would take the CDN to get it from your site would be a negative impact. [)amien
