CDN reduce load and provide security. I suggest some best CDN for WordPress.
What is a CDN?
A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data centers. The goal is to provide high availability and high performance by distributing the service spatially relative to end-users. CDNs serve a large portion of the Internet content today, including web objects (text, graphics and scripts), downloadable objects (media files, software, documents), applications (e-commerce, portals), live streaming media, on-demand streaming media, and social media sites.
CDNs are a layer in the internet ecosystem. Content owners such as media companies and e-commerce vendors pay CDN operators to deliver their content to their end users. In turn, a CDN pays ISPs, carriers, and network operators for hosting its servers in their data centers.
CDN vendors may cross over into other industries like security, with DDoS protection and web application firewalls (WAF), and WAN optimization.
How CDN speeds up WordPress?
Generally, your WordPress hosting company serves your website from a single location. All visitors access the same server. If you have a high traffic, then all those user requests will slow down your website. During peak traffic hours, it can even crash the server which will make your site temporarily unavailable.
CDN caches your server’s static resources like CSS, JS, and images. When any user requests your website, all static resources are served through CDN servers. This reduces the load on your origin server and makes it faster and more efficient.
Static content is served through a network of servers located in different geographical locations around the globe. Each user request is handled by a server closest to the user’s location. This reduces the page load speed, and your website becomes noticeably faster for all users.
CDN for WordPress
Cloudflare has built an expansive network of global data centers that cache static content closer to users. Caching frequently accessed files on Cloudflare’s network reduces the distance content needs to travel to get to the user and minimizes the impact of high latency on web page load times. Cloudflare’s network is API first, allowing customers to easily automate workflows with highly granular controls of how content is cached and purged. Caching content on Cloudflare’s network lowers the need to source content from hosted servers or origins, and reduces bandwidth utilization costs from the origin. Customers that host their websites with any of Cloudflare’s partners will receive data transit discounts for any requests from their origins to Cloudflare’s network.
