Importance of Content Delivery Network (CDN)
User experience and SEO are totally based on the speed of WordPress Blog. To improve the speed of web pages there are multiple tools available and one of them is CDN. In this article, the basics of CDN have been explained.
What is CDN?
CDN stands for Content Delivery Network, a server network, which delivers cached content to users from websites, based on their location.
When a user visits the WordPress website Blog, they get redirected to the central server which may be located anywhere in the world. If there is a significant load on that server, it either gets prevented or may even get down. To resolve this issue CDN would be employed. Once CDN is employed, the static information would automatically get cached, unfolded on different servers and CDN redirects the user to the nearest server in order to make the website loading quicker.
For example: If the main server is in San Francisco, CA, and someone from Rome, Italy tries to open the website, then the user will be redirected to the nearest server which may be in Milan, Italy.
The number of users visiting your web-server affects the page loading time. By implementing content on multiple servers across the world, you can make your pages load faster. The closer the user is to the server, the faster the content is delivered to the user.
Importance of CDN
As already discussed, CDN makes a huge impact on the website, here are some positive effects of CDN on our WordPress Blog:
1. The website loading speed increases with CDN.
2. Using CDN, the load gets distributed to CDN servers and the main server gets lesser load.
3. The bounce rate reduces leading to increased page views. A fast website leads to an improved experience for the users.
4. Faster websites get higher search engines ranking.
