What is CDN?

A CDN (content delivery network), also called a content distribution network, is a group of geographically distributed and interconnected servers that speeds up webpage loading for data-heavy applications.

When a user visits your website, data from the website’s server (your xneelo hosting server) has to travel across the internet to reach the user’s computer. If the user is located far from the server, it will take a long time to load a large file, such as video or a website image. 

With CDN, this kind of content can be cached (saved for some time) in multiple locations at once, on servers all over the world. The primary goal of a CDN is to improve web performance by reducing the time needed to send content and rich media to users, therefore improving load times on your website, and creating a better experience for the end-user. 

The internet has in recent decades become embedded in almost everything. Serving content to your end-user in a fast and responsive way is critical for your online business.

Xneelo has partnered with CDN provider, Fastly, to help customers make great digital experiences happen quickly, securely, and reliably by processing and serving customers’ applications at the edge, as close to end-users as possible.

Assist Note

Activate CDN via the xneelo Control Panel.

Assist Tip

CDN and Cloudbric cannot be activated on the same hosting package at the same time as they require the website DNS to point to an alternative IP.
