Try CloudFlare and SteadyOffload and google for common
website performance and speed enhancements. (firebug comes
to mind - measure, optimize, measure, optimize, measure...)

A list of such enhancements is here but undoubtedly there
are other pages covering this area further and in greater


Best practices for speeding up your website:

As regards CDN you may want to look into MaxCDN and SimpleCDN both are aimed
at the masses so they should be reasonably priced.

If you are using custom fonts try hosting fonts in a place other than your
server, such as on webfonts.fonts.com or fontdeck or typefront. They likely
have CDN already so loading fonts could become faster.

If using jquery (who isnt) load the files from code.google.com.
The servers are likely replicated and cached locally around the world
for faster access.


If your site delivers video content use a specialized video streaming cdn
if you can afford it
