When I was working with my CDN company (MaxCDN), they said the same thing -- first byte is almost always driven by the hosting company.

Their suggestion was to implement CloudFlare in addition to the CDN, as CloudFlare is actually a 'first hit cache/CDN' of your site (before people actually hit your server), so instead of getting served by your server, they are getting served by CloudFlare first. They have a free service and it seems to have helped my sites (by about 30% speed increase).


agreed. i use cloudflare for quite a few sites and have found it does help with load times (and first byte times). this on a decent spec VPS. also use w3 total cache with max cdn and find they work very well together. for example
