What is a CDN and how does it work?

CDN or content delivery networks are a set geographically distributed group of servers created to reduce latency and increase your site speed. Essentially, a CDN helps load websites faster for the end-user and increases a website’s protection against DDoS attacks.

These servers are placed at exchange points between different networks. Essentially, a CDN creates copies of a website's content and stores it across several servers around the world. This helps elevate a local visitor’s experience with your website.

Benefits of using a Content Delivery Network

  • Improves site speed

    CDNs distribute content faster by sharing the content to a user’s nearest CDN server improving site speed and performance significantly. Just like this, CDNs have various in-built optimizations that improve your site’s speed.

  • Reduced bandwidth costs

    Bandwidth cost is an ongoing expense for a growing website. With Appy Pie Website Builder’s CDN, bandwidth costs can be minimized thanks to the reduced data requirements of CDN servers.

    CDNs protect your website because they provide you with DDoS mitigation, improvements to security certificates, and various other optimizations. Websites with CDNs are also harder to hack into.

Top Frequently Asked Questions

Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a network of servers deployed in multiple data centers worldwide to deliver the content with the best possible performance.

CDN network works by caching the static content of your website on the servers of the CDN provider. When a user requests a page from your website, the CDN provider will serve the static content from its servers. This will reduce the load on your server and will speed up the delivery of your content.

CDN stands for Content Delivery Network. It is a network of servers that deliver content to end-users with high availability and high performance.

CDN provides you with the following benefits:

  • Speed up your website and improve user experience
  • Improve the performance of your mobile applications
  • Reduce bandwidth costs by serving content from a nearby location
  • Reduce latency and improve your website's performance
  • Protect your business from DDoS attacks by using a CDN service provider that offers DDoS protection

To set up your CDN network, you need to take care of-

  • Origin server: This is where your static assets are hosted. It can be an internal server or an external host like Amazon S3 or Rackspace Cloud Files.
  • Edge servers: These are the servers that actually deliver the content to end-users when they request it from your website. You need at least one edge server for each location to deliver your content, e.g., US, West Coast, and Europe.

If you use an external hosting provider like Appy Pie's CDN Network, they will usually have their own edge servers that will cache your assets. So you don't need any additional hardware/software yourself unless you want more control over how things work.

Content delivery networks are priced based on the amount of bandwidth you need. The price is usually based on the amount of data transferred per month.

It depends on the type of content you are delivering and your target audience. There are many different providers available on the internet. However, we recommend you choose Appy Pie's CDN network as it can cater to all your business needs.
