What is a CDN?
53% of users expect a website to load in three seconds or less. With CDN (content delivery network), you can improve your web performance by reducing the time needed to send content and rich media to your users.
What are the benefits of using a CDN?
1. Faster loading times
A CDN improves the performance of your website for visitors by increasing the loading speed of your content such as web pages, video and streaming platforms.
2. Better search rankings
Faster load times drastically improve your website’s SEO ranking.
3. Extra security
Security measures provided by a CDN provider can include DDoS protection and encryption.
4. Improved reliability
