Early March 2019, I launched a free CDN service which I named ANYONE CDN. The mission of making this free CDN is to provide an opportunity for everyone to be able to implement CDN on all websites, whether personal or corporate.

A question arises, why make a free CDN service if you already have Cloudflare? Anyone CDN is an alternative solution for those who "don't like" using Cloudflare, and only need static files that pass through the CDN, not the website as a whole. As we all know, to use the Cloudflare service, we are "forced" so that our website is proxied through the Cloudflare infrastructure. On the one hand it can be profitable, but on the other hand, for some parties, they don't like the solution.

Anyone CDN only caches your website's static files, for website pages, it will still be served by your web server.

What are the advantages of using a CDN?

If you do a load test with Load Impact For example, if you compare using a CDN and without a CDN, there will be a difference in CPU load. Without a CDN, the CPU will work harder because it not only serves web pages, but also has to serve static files. Meanwhile, if using a CDN, the CPU performance will be lighter, because it only works to serve web page processing, while static files (such as css, javascipt, images, videos, fonts) will be submitted to the CDN service.

Anyone CDN Features

As I have listed on the Anyone CDN website, the features are as follows:

  1. Cache Time
    Your site's static files will be cached on the Anyone CDN browser and server for 30 days, after 30 days the Anyone CDN server will fetch again to your site's web server.
  2. Secure CDN
    Anyone CDN only fetches your site via an https connection, and can only be accessed via an https connection.
  3. No Limit
    No traffic and throttling restrictions.
  4. No Cost
    There is no cost, aka free CDN!
  5. GZIP Compression
    I activate GZIP compression, in order to reduce bandwidth and files can be loaded faster.
  6. Remove Cookies
    Cookies are removed in every file that goes through Anyone CDN, this can reduce latency and increase the score on the GT Metrix.
  7. CORS Header
    CORS or Cross Origin Resource Sharing I activate to all, this is usually the solution to errors in fontawesome display fonts and icons.
  8. WordPress Friendly
    Anyone CDN runs smoothly without problems on WordPress, just install the CDN Enabler plugin. I will review the tutorial below.
  9. Global Network
    Anyone CDN servers are spread all over the world, and with Anycast IP, files will be sent to your visitors from the nearest datacenter.

Limitation of Free CDN from Anyone CDN

This free CDN service from Anyone CDN has limitations, namely:

  1. No Control Panel
    For now, Anyone CDN does not have a control panel, whether to view statistics, change or delete CDNs, and so on.
  2. No Purge Button
    There are no buttons to do purge. If you need Anyone CDN to do fetch, you have to wait 30 days; or it can be tricked by changing the file name, then Anyone CDN will automatically do fetch.
  3. Beta Stage
    Anyone CDN is still in Beta, meaning there might be bugs or errors.
  4. 20% Rule
    Although there is no traffic limit, Anyone CDN has 20% fair usage rules, where the maximum bandwidth per CDN is 20% of the total bandwidth per month.
  5. HTTPS Only
    Anyone CDN will only fetch the https site, so make sure your site has an SSL certificate.
  6. No Origin IP or Custom Port
    Currently Anyone CDN does not support options Origin IP or custom port. All fetch directly to the site address via https.
  7. No Cloudflare
    If your site is currently using Cloudflare, then Anyone CDN will not work.

Creating a CDN on Anyone CDN

Creating a CDN on Anyone CDN is very easy, you only need to enter the domain of your site, without https: //; and press "Create CDN“.

Within 60 seconds, your CDN is ready to use.

NOTE: If your site uses www, then you need to add www as well in the domain name.

Integration with WordPress

Note: As of February 2021, CDN Enabler version 2.0 is not supported custom hostname, for that use version 1.0.9 in order to use this AnyoneCDN service.

To use this free CDN service from Anyone CDN on your WordPress site, simply install it CDN Enabler - WordPress CDN Plugin, and the following settings:

CDN Enabler

In the "CDN URL" field enter the CDN url that you got from Anyone CDN, without any slashes at the end of the url.

Check the "CDN HTTPS" option, and press the "Save Changes" button. Done, your WordPress site is already using the free CDN service from Anyone CDN.

  1. Wow, thank you Mr. Ferdian Alfianto, btw I even found the Anyone CDN website first compared to the guide :)
    I was wondering on the website https://anyone.cdn.biz.id/ , "Where's the Guide / Tutorial? How come there isn't a guide on the website!"
    uh I got the guide from here hehehhe

    Once again, thank you sir

  2. Can images that are embedded from other domains, for example from wp.com, have the extension for subdomains, files, wordpress, com, can you use this too?

    1. Actually there is, it costs 100 thousand per month for unlimited bandwidth and custom CNAME (for example: cdn.yourdomain.com). I haven't published it for the public yet, but if you are interested, you can contact me.

      1. Hello sir,

        I have tried it and it seems that until now it suits my needs compared to I tried CF

        If you have the 20% limit, what will happen?

        1. If it's not consuming too much of the main bandwidth, usually I still give leeway, but if the intention is to suck up bandwidth (for example, for video streams / downloading large files), I usually block it immediately.

  3. Hello sir, I want to try the CDN, but anyone.cdn.biz.id seems inaccessible. Is it no longer active sir?

    1. There are currently a few technical issues on the main web, but they are not affecting the CDN service. Try again later tonight or tomorrow morning, God willing, it will be resolved.

  4. Hello Ferdian,
    I have a question regarding to anyone.com and CDN that you started. I tried to contact you via contact form left side of the screen but it didn't open the form. Anyway, I created a CDN with anyone and that was really fine but because of some issues I never continued using anyone cdn service but thats on me. Today I tried to install CDN Enabler but when I full URL there was some warning like cdn.biz.id was not recognized or something like that. So I would like to check is my account still active with you guys or not. I would like to start again with your CDN since I do remember that there was no conflicts and everything was working just fine. Thank you in advance and thatnk you for your work and really generous deal and I really mean that. OK.
    Cheers,
