Just wondering – do you have any experience setting up a CDN with WordPress on Alibaba Cloud? Looking for some tips. Thanks!

maomao April 19, 2018 - 11:00 pm

Hey Piers, you could try a CDN service provider in mainland instead of setup Alibaba Cloud yourself. That would be more efficient.

Nice article.
I am a bit confused between alibaba ECS and Web hosting. Do you what are their differences?
Also in this way, does Alibaba web hosting support PHP and SQL?

maomao June 12, 2018 - 10:30 pm

Thank You. I think ECS is another type, web hosting is the most basic and cheapest one. And they are all support PHP and SQL.
