For those who don’t know, CDN or Content delivery network is a network of servers located all around the world at different geographic locations which help the content of a website to get delivered to the user in the shortest possible time. In simple words, CDN boosts the performance of your website over the internet. Most of the international websites have CDN and their servers are located all around the world in different countries across the continents. There are many companies which provide the facility of CDN solutions to various websites and users. Without CDN an American website will load very slowly in Asia as the distance between the server and the client is way too long. Most of the users will not understand the cause behind it rather they will blame the website or the company for slow processing.
Why use CDN solutions?
CDN solutions can help your website and business in many ways. Some of them are listed below.
Blazing fast website: CDN will make your slow website transform into blazing fast website. As the network of the servers are established all around the world. The website loading speed will automatically reduce as the traffic on the internet is reduced which was causing the slow down.
Data caching: Without CDN, website takes a lot of time to load. Now imagine the result if you are downloading a large file from the other port of the world using the internet. CDN also provides you with the facility of data caching which means the data that you want to download will be cached on the nearest server present to your location. This will also result in high downloading speed.
Reduced traffic: There is a lot of traffic on the internet just as we have lots of traffic on city roads. This traffic makes the website slow as well as causes the loss of data packets. Using the CDN, traffic will be reduced and your website will definitely perform better.
