    CDN's that support gzip and expires headers

    Which CDN's allow for the Expires headers to be set and for the content to be send Gzipped (to browsers that support it)

    basically to efficiently cache small static files like CSS/JS and images for fastest delivery globally

    cheers

    Ideally you would want them to be hosted on separate machines with SSDs or RAM-based storage, and minify your CSS and JS files as well, if you want speed.

    I already do that with server in US and EU

    serving static files from memory with proper expiry headers for caching and gziped content to browsers that support it



    but ordering servers in different continents/location is pricey and and overkill considering that these servers wouldn't be using much resources


    hence why i am intrigued by CDNs that have multiple locations

    but so far my research hasnt yielded a list of ones that gzip and let you send custom expiry headers to control caching

    This can be done quite easily indeed and with a dedicated server you would have more control over the settings and configuration you may need.

    SimpleCDN supports that. Very cheap and good performance. No known outage up to now.

    For most underlying OS, active content is going to be in disk cache anyways.

    minifying is risky for the service provider since the file is being modified. If a file is being delivered using gzip/deflate, then minify does not matter in the least.
