content delivery network
What are the benefits of using a CDN?
The most important benefits can be divided into 4 components:
– Improving website load times. By distributing content closer to website visitors by using a nearby CDN server, users load pages faster which increase a number of visitors who stay on this website.
– Reducing bandwidth costs. Bandwidth consumption costs for website hosting is a primary expense for websites. CDNs reduce the amount of data, reducing costs for website owners.
– Increasing content availability and redundancy. Large amounts of traffic or hardware failures can interrupt normal website function.
– Improving website security. A CDN may improve security by providing DDoS mitigation, improvements to security certificates, and other optimizations.
A properly configured CDN may also help protect websites against some common malicious attacks, such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks. That is the main reason why we are using CDN on the ATRONOCOM platform.
