The Advantages of CDN
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) offer numerous advantages by improving website load time for users regardless of their global location. This is achieved by caching website copies on servers located strategically at our network edge. The CDN utilizes internet exchange points (neutral data centres) utilized by industry giants like Google, Microsoft, and Amazon.
Our CDN also incorporates multiple speed-enhancing features to automatically apply web performance best practices that improve website acceleration. This includes features such as automatic image resizing, image compression, and code minification. Overall, CDNs are a reliable and efficient way to increase website speed, leading to enhanced user experience and improved website traffic.
How CDN works
A Content Distribution Network (CDN) is all about making a website load faster for all users, wherever they are in the world.
This is done by storing (caching) copies of your website on servers at the network edge. For example, if your website is hosted at a UK data centre, there might be a delay if you try to access that site from the USA. So a copy of your website is stored on a server closer to the user, called a Point of Presence (POP). Multiple copies of your site’s data is stored at different POPs throughout the world, so your site will load faster in remote places. Your users will navigate your site more efficiently, wherever they are.
While it’s good for users, it also helps your website in other ways. Search engines love fast-loading sites so there’s an SEO benefit to having a CDN.
Our CDN offers the same features as premium providers like Cloudflare.
