BootstrapCDN is a public content delivery network. It enables users to load CSS, JavaScript and images remotely from its servers. Used by more than 7.9 million websites worldwide (including 30% of the top-10k websites), BootstrapCDN serves more than 70 billion requests a month.[1] In March 2021 the ownership was transferred to the jsDelivr project.


NetDNA (formerly MaxCDN, acquired by StackPath) launched BootstrapCDN, the free content delivery network aspect of Bootstrap, with a beta launch on June 7, 2012, and a stable launch on July 5, 2012.[2] Stanford University, Angry Birds and Gizmodo utilize BootstrapCDN.[3]

Font Awesome[edit]

Font Awesome, a font designed for use with Twitter Bootstrap, was incorporated into BootstrapCDN on August 21, 2012. The font offers scalable vector icons that are CSS-friendly for customization.[4]

As of July 5, 2013 — a year after it launched — BootstrapCDN transferred 40.73 terabytes and served 3.2 billion requests, with 383 changes to its GitHub repository (git commits). Font Awesome was its most popular requested file with 338,329,273 hits.[5]
