What are the benefits, and when should you use a CDN?
If you’re like most small business owners, you may not know exactly what a CDN is. The term stands for Content Delivery Network, which is simply a system of servers distributed across the world.
Essentially, CDN’s are used to improve how fast your website loads. By leveraging intelligent geographical placement of servers, it decreases the time it takes for your visitor to load your website.
This is important for you as website speed is an essential factor for your success online.
Why You’d Use a CDN
Speed is important for both user experience, and search engine optimisation. Increased speed will result in the following benefits…
