Do I need a CDN and cacheing plugin both?

I am currently working on optimising my site’s load times. I’ve come across Cloudflare and am thinking of trying their free CDN. However, I’m currently using a cacheing plugin as well.

As I’ve learned so far, the CDN stores cached, static content to deliver at a much faster speed.

If I decide to use the Cloudflare CDN service, will I no longer need the caching plugin that I have, or does the cacheing plugin provide any additional benefits that the CDN won’t, in terms of speed optimisation.

Btw, I’m using W3 Total Cache.

Any and all responses are massively appreciated!

Hi There,

You can still use the Caching plugin along with the CDN for more optimization.

Here is an article that might help.

Have a good one.
