David Cruwys Article Leave a Comment

A content delivery network helps to host content such as images, media files, static content and style sheets of a large website by reproducing a copy of data through the various nodes of a network. Additionally, content delivery software helps to reduce load of websites and to improve downloading time of the websites. CDN is not just software; instead, it is a mix of hardware and software which helps to solve the problem of web content downloading and management using synchronization, logging, authentication and load balancing.

It can be used to any content of the web, the idea of CDN is that it pulls url and distributes to the nearest web host worldwide which reduces loading time and downtime for the webpage/website to load.
