RocketCDN Review

Last updated on June 7, 2022 | By

RocketCDN is Wp Rocket’s CDN. With unique pricing of $8.99 a month and $90/yearly, it offers unlimited CDN traffic(at Wp Media’s discretion). It also offers integration with Wp Rocket.

Rocket CDN is powered by StackPath which has 45 edge locations around the world.

RocketCDN setup is a simple 1 step task, just activate it after purchase on the Wp Rocket admin panel CDN tab. It also offers integration with Cloudflare.

How does RocketCDN help a slow and large WordPress website?

If your site has a lot of CSS assets due to it being an ecommerce or a customized theme, it will load much faster by using a CDN, which just has the purpose of loading and delivering these assets, hence the loading difference from your server will be substantial.

The user experience will also improve, by rendering pages faster, making the pagination faster.

What’s the difference between Rocket CDN vs Cloudflare

Cloudflare does only proxy the assets at the cache level using its global network of servers, while Rocket CDN servers the static files(CSS/JSS) through its CDN powered by StackPath.

A better comparison would be Cloudflare’s Automatic Platform Optimization plugin which serves the static files plus the HTML from its edge servers network. Cloudflare APO is priced at $5/moth.
