Why do you need it? I suggest a traditional CDN instead.

Hello jeff, sorry for the late reply.
in fact just trying to add another layer of performance, i tried this with wordpress before and went fine but i don`t know if i need it here so bad ?? and what traditional CDN means ?

What are your recommendations sir in this matter ?

in fact just i need speed for far location, our server is located in Germany and from Australian is taking 8 seconds i want to reduce the waiting time by that way, so am ready to hear your suggestion,

If you configure Discourse with knowledge of a CDN, then it’ll send all requests for static assets to the CDN.

Since all dynamic requests have to hit the server anyways, Cloudflare in front of those might make the problem worse.

Sounds clear enough… Thanks A lot.
