What is a Content Delivery Network?

This article will explain what a Content Delivery Network is and how it will assist your WordPress website.

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is effectively a network of servers that help to improve the security and loading speeds of your website’s pages by storing your site’s files in servers situated around the world.

When a visitor accesses your website, it will then retrieve content from the server that’s geographically closest to them. As a result, this will ensure faster loading times for your site and it will also mitigate any potential Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks.
