A content delivery network (CDN) is a geographically distributed group of servers that provide fast delivery of Internet content, including HTML pages, javascript files, stylesheets, images, and videos.

Incorporating a CDN with your website gives you several benefits, including the following:

  • Faster Page Loads - Since most of your files will be served from a much closer location to your end-users, the speed in which your page loads will be greatly increased.
  • Reduced Server Load and Bandwidth - Since most of your files are no longer served by your own host, your server will be freed up to perform the basic tasks required of it.
  • Handle More Visitors - Because of the improvements just mentioned and other factors, your website will be able to handle the strain of a much larger user base that it could otherwise.
  • Higher SEO Rankings - Caused by the increase in performance to your site, something that affects Google SEO rankings.

Try out a CDN with your website to experience these benefits and more.
