    Hi, i have some idea for hosting domain. But before to proceed, i need to ask if cdn + normal share hosting are better option than vps itself? If it come to price, for example the maxcdn come with just under 5$ per month, and with normal sharing hosting its really good bargain. I am thinking right ?

    You can get free CDN from cloudflare. I am using it and I am pleased with it.

    Yea, CDNs are a great way to speed up sites on shared hosting.

    No, dont bother with paid versions, either go with Lets Encrypt (which you have to renew every 3 months and there are some hosts which have the function in their cpanel, like superhosting.bg - its from where siteground has started)
    1st make sure your shared hosting server have http/2 enabled to benefit from the speed.

    Free version is plenty for a small site. Cloudflare also gives free SSL. i.s Flexible SSL

    There are multiple ways to measure a CDN. Thus - the "best" OR "good" here might be different depending on the measure you are applying.

    Choosing a CDN to fit your specific requirement is key, so it is important to assess your budget bandwidth needs, audience, streaming capabilities & technical support offered.

    Yeah, I am about to put viral content. Traffic from facebook. So i have doubts if my current vps will handle this. I was thinking for purchasing a CDn for testing for few days. I didn`t find much information for my inquiry. Anyway, if you have any more experience, please share here. Thank you.

    Cloudflare (free) is not even close to real CDN.

    OP for CDN would suggest you taking look on KeyCDN (free trail available).
