Going https resulted in all n/a

RE: Going https resulted in all n/a
CDNs are rarely required for correctly tuned sites.

CDNs will, many times, slow down well tuned sites.

If you use a hosting company (I use OVH), which sits servers on the same global backbone as most CDNs, then the only benefit of a CDN (for well tuned sites), is slightly faster (sub millisecond) connection time for first connection.

After the first connection, well tuned sites will arrange for all site objects (images, css, js, etc) to be cached in the the visitors browser.

If you really dig into WPT test reports you will notice almost always, slowest objects are loading off CDNs, so rule of thumb is never believe anyone - CDN marketing hype or any expert (me included).

Rather test it yourself.

The truth is in the testing.
