What is a CDN?
A content delivery network (CDN) is a distributed server system that delivers webpages to end-users. These servers cache copies of your website's content so that it can be delivered quickly and efficiently to users, regardless of location. Your website will load faster for anyone who accesses it.
Why do we use a CDN?
The main reason we use a CDN is to improve page load times. The more people that visit your site, the more work it takes for your server to deliver all those web pages at once. A CDN helps distribute this load across multiple servers worldwide, reducing the stress on any one server and improving page load times for everyone who visits your site.
A CDN is generally less expensive than a dedicated server or a VPS (Virtual Private Server). The CDN gives your website a performance boost and reduces our cost.
What does a CDN do for you?
A CDN allows us to host your site on multiple servers around the world, which means that when someone visits from another country, they'll still get served by one of our servers closest to them—meaning fast downloads and low latency no matter where you're located. Shorter load times mean happier customers, and we both like that!
