Using Content Delivery Network or Content Distribution Network (CDN) for your website is among the best ways to speed up your website load time. CDN is used to host your Website’s static components like images, JavaScript files, CSS and other basic files at various points in a network so as to maximize bandwidth for access to the data from clients throughout the network. Since the files get copied around multiple networks in the different geographical locations so the user will access the copy of the file near to it instantly which will surely make the website load faster.
There are many companies that provides CDN service for your website and WordPress blogs, but you need to pay them according to the bandwidth used. So using Dropbox CDN for your wordpress blog is a wise thing for those who want free CDN service for their blog. You can get 2GB storage on Dropbox with free signup and even more on referring other people.
Dropbox CDN is all that wordpress plugin that helps you copy all the static files related to your wordpress theme on on dropbox. All you have to do is install this plugin on your wordpress blog, make few settings and let plugin do rest of the work.
If you got Dropbox software installed on your PC then open the ‘Public’ folder inside Dropbox folder from your computer or you can open the same folder from your browser by signing in into your dropbox account. Now create a new folder inside it similar to your blog name like I have used ‘Bloganol’ here and Upload all of the .js, .jpg, .gif, .png, and .css files from your theme inside that folder keeping the same folder structure.
Time to login into your Dropbox account at dropbox.com, navigate to Public-folder and open your folder that contains the file of your wordpress theme. Click arrow next to the file you uploaded to get the public link.

Enter the Dropbox folder public URL (that we copied before) in the “URL to Public folder” box and save the plugin. Now as I said before, the plugin will take care of rest of the work.
