Do You Need a CDN For Your Media Content?

CDN (Content Delivery Network) delivers high quality and rich content to all of your web users. A CDN has a network of servers that are in various locations across the world. Whenever you upload your videos, your photos, your music, and any other content, there will be a copy of those files placed on a server.

Benefits of CDN

When a web user visits your site from a particular location, they will have access to your files from a nearby server. This will help the speed to be increased tremendously. When files are placed in multiple locations, this allows you the benefit of having nearly 100 percent of uptime.

If there are any issues, a CDN server will handle those problems automatically. This is also another reason many websites are choosing to use a content delivery network for all of their media content.

If you receive complaints about your servers being bogged down or if you are receiving a spike in traffic, then you may need to consider using a CDN. You should also choose a CDN if the solution you are using is hitting you with too many fees or if you have to pay at a high rate.

For many businesses, they will find that a CDN will be an effective solution. If you are thinking beyond the long-term, using a content delivery network is a solution that can grow with your business.

If you have an abundance of content media on your website and you need to stream media, then you will need special software to enable this content to run. Many CDNs already have this software available on their platform.

If you want to know if you need a CDN, you should ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have a large or small amount of content on your site?
  • Do you have plenty of web users visiting your site?
  • Where are these web users located?

If you think that a CDN is perfect for the needs of you business, but you are unsure of which CDN will be perfect for you, you should contact us today. We can discuss all options that you have.
