It’s a little-known fact that CDNs transport a large piece of the global internet traffic. They have an important job of delivering content. They have become an integrated part of the web hosting landscape in recent years to handle the incredible number of files that are sent around the world every day.

Originally the internet was created to send text and emails to another part of the globe. Later the world wide web was created to expand that use. Today we now rely on the internet for everything from emails, to a website, to managing devices and streaming high definition video. That’s a lot of web traffic.

To make websites fast and efficient, CDNs speed up the process of getting website content to end users, and it’s not just for big business. It works by remembering a version of images, video and other files like javascript and cascading style sheets which all make up web pages. While the web server is busy delivering the web page, all the extra content is delivered via the Content Distribution Network simultaneously. The web server and CDN work in tandem to quickly form a page on a user’s web browser.

Additionally, CDNs can be in multiple locations, so the files that make up your web page can be served from a CDN server that’s close to you – which makes it faster than if it was served from where the web server is located.

So using a CDN with your website means that you can deliver a fast, high-quality experience to your web visitors, no matter where they are in the world, or what browser or network they are using. Web pages load faster, video load times are quick and users lose the temptation to click away.

For businesses, a CDN makes great sense because it keeps users engaged, and they don’t get tempted to click away because a site is loading slowly. If you feel your site is running slowly a CDN can help. Why not speak to us at Asporea and find out what we can do for you. We offer business-grade CDN services from USD10/month.
