Today we are going to know about CDN and also we will discuss why website owners should use CDN for their website. So, let’s start our today’s topic: What is a CDN?
CDN stands for CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORK or CONTENT DISTRIBUTION NETWORK. CDN is a geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data center. The main goal to use the CDN network is to provide high availability and performance by distributing the service spatially relative to end-users.
Let’s explain this with a live example. Suppose, a visitor is trying to visit your website from India. But your web server is located in United State. If you calculate the physical distance between India and the United State, it will be too much. So, usually, your website will take too long to load. But if you use a CDN, it will minimize delays in loading web page contents by reducing the physical distance between the server and the user. That means the Indian visitor will be able to see all your page contents with the same high-quality without slow loading speed.
I wish, now you understood what does CDN stands for. This live example should be enough to understand the main purpose and use of CDN. But I will explain everything in this post. So, continue reading this complete post about CDN.
