A content delivery network (CDN) can help your organization to enjoy improved website accessibility, reduced download speed, and enhanced reliability. A CDN can provide these services for a very reasonable price, enabling you to reap substantial benefits at modest expense.
What is a CDN?
A CDN is to the Internet what a turbocharger is to an internal combustion engine. It provides the extra boost of computing power your online presence needs in order to satisfy time-conscious clients. It does so in the following ways:
- By reducing latency. Multiple factors can cause slow uploads, even in these days of high-speed Internet. Potential issues include geographical distance, server capacity, and hard drive size and age. A CDN helps to compensate for these effects, enabling your content to appear on user’s screens faster. This capability is vital for not only attracting but maintaining traffic to your website.
- By enhancing your online security. Staying one step ahead of hackers and cyber-criminals is a top priority for organizations of all sizes. A CDN can help in this regard by furnishing options like a custom CNAME and other crucial safeguards.
- By empowering you to manage your site better. For example, a CDN can enable you to view real-time usage statistics, use a FTP to upload files, and remove obsolete or inappropriate content with fast purge-all capabilities.
In short, a CDN can help your organization to enjoy optimum returns on its online investment. Choosing the right CDN provider is key to enjoying these benefits, however. To find out more about how we can help your organization to function smoother and more profitably, please contact us today.
