MaxCDN vs StackPath: What are the differences?

Developers describe MaxCDN as "Our CDN makes your site load faster!". The MaxCDN Content Delivery Network efficiently delivers your site’s static file through hundreds of servers instead of slogging through a single host. This "smart route" technology distributes your content to your visitors via the city closest to them. On the other hand, StackPath is detailed as "Secure Edge Platform for Developers". Build your applications and services at the edge, with Edge Computing and Edge Services that give you high performance, full security, and total control.

MaxCDN can be classified as a tool in the "Content Delivery Network" category, while StackPath is grouped under "Platform as a Service".

Some of the features offered by MaxCDN are:

  • We Make You Fast- With our fast-growing network of multiple PoP locations in all parts of the globe, we mirror your content and deliver it to the neared location to your visitors. It isn't just our network that is fast, but with our state-of-art hardware, fast RAM and SSD storage, content is served at lightning fast speeds.
  • We Have Your Back- To ensure that you do not have any downtime, we have deployed redundant networks and intelligent routing that ensures selecting an alternative route if a network pathway is down.
  • We Help You Rank- Using MaxCDN will help you improve your website speed, and since this is now a ranking factor used by Google and other search engines for deciding search results, deploying MaxCDN will help you rank better, giving you more traffic.

On the other hand, StackPath provides the following key features:

  • VPN

      Reviews of MaxCDN and StackPath
      Review ofMaxCDNMaxCDN

      Their website only shows the prices for some aspects of the service, mainly just the bandwidth. But where they really get you is by charging high fees for everything else. Their basic rate only includes North America and Europe. You have to pay extra for other locations. Then hosting a subdomain costs $100 extra/month (no idea why, other CDNs do it for free), additional zones cost extra (normally free with other CDNs), no caching rules unless you pay extra, hidden fees for push data storage, etc etc.
