The CDN comes from the Content Delivery Network initials. This is a network of servers that distribute the static content of a website based on the geographic location of the user who visits it.
This improves the loading speed of the web page. For those who do not know the speed is a very important feature both for the end user (visitor of the page) and for SEO. Google calculates the speed of your page's ranking in search results.
Content Providers or CDNs have multiple POPs locations around the world that bring the records closer to the end user to ensure the fastest delivery possible.
These networks serve a large amount of Internet content such as: multimedia files, software, documents, applications, e-commerce, portals, live streaming, on-demand multimedia broadcasting, social networks, static files (.js, .css) , images etc.
KeyCDN is the service we use on iGuRu.gr, which we have spectacular results (see picture below). Because we are a customer of the service, we have a promotional link that offers 10 dollars in each new subscription to try out the service on your site.
The amount of 10 dollars is not at all small if you use the feature Pullover, which serves your site's content on the fly without being stored on the KeyCDN servers.
On the other hand the function Push Also available by the company, it costs more, as all your static files (js, css and images) are served by the company's servers and not the server hosting your page.
With 10 dollars in Pull mode, a small site (with little traffic) can have CDN in the next semester at worst.
Settings are very simple. Create your own zone and with the appropriate extension you can use it on your site.
