I want to use multiple CDNs at once on my website. Is it possible?

    Any 2 good quality CDNs, if balanced properly based on performance, will always outperform any 1 good quality CDN. That is what Cedexis does. We have a billion RUM measurements daily which confirm that. You pick your CDNs, we help you balance between them.

    Multiple CDN's will slow your site better use one only

    Do your visitors complain about speed? If not then Cloudflare is fine fort you.
    CloudFlare is somewhat in between CDN and standard hosting. Basically it does two things:
    (1) It takes over the DNS operations in order to check which requests are valid and which are malicious e.g. bot generated e.g. (D)DoS attacks. Those requests are simply discarded and don't add load on your webserver
    (2) CloudFlare analyzes all requests to see which content is frequently accesses yet rarely changed (e.g. the basic layout, CSS) and then caches this data on the CloudFlare servers (which form a CDN) to speed up requests to those resources.

    At the end of the day though, all data is one your single webserver and all requests land there.

    If you had your own load balancing server or something, perhaps. But generally, no.

    I'm not sure how to answer that question directly ~ basically, a CDN is like a (web/data)host, you get space, you upload your data. It is then internally synchronized to multiple servers within the CDN and then distributed to your visitors (based on geo-lookup, latency, round-robin or whatever).

    If you want to use multiple CDNs for the same content you will have to upload the same content to those multiple CDNs.

    Of course you can also upload content A to one CDN and content B to another one yet offer/implement both on your single website.
