A Content Delivery Network (or CDN) is one extra feature you can add to your WPhost plan so your WordPress website chases the speed of light. With a CDN, your visitors will receive images and static files from the server that’s physically closest to them. That proximity ensures their experience with your site is always crazy fast, no matter where in the world they’re located.
For example, let’s say you’re a Silver, Gold or Platinum WPhost client who’s taken advantage of their free Cloudflare account. Predominantly your clients are in New Zealand and Australia. Your Cloudflare CDN serves your assets from a bunch of different servers based around the world, including Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. The idea is that users will hit the server closest to them and not sacrifice load time, since there’s a smaller distance between them and the server. Therefore, a Melbourne based visitor will hit your data centre in Melbourne. Similarly, a visitor based in London will be served your website from London!
Using a CDN will definitely increase the speed of your site for users throughout the world! But wherever your clients, WPhost is committed to unbeatable page speeds for a global audience.
