In the world of mobile and app-based internet, online vendors and website owners are forced to offer quicker and simple page navigation for a better user experience. Statistics show that even a one second delay in the page load time of website can cause a loss of up to 5% – 7% of potential customers.
To overcome this issue, implementing a Content Delivery Network (also known as a CDN) can ensure that your visitors experience optimal web performance. In a CDN, the content is replicated to the destination servers to cache the server’s content globally.
In this article, we will discuss the important benefits of using a CDN for your website.
Significantly Reduced Page Load Time: For online businesses, sales can really suffer due to speed and latency issues. If your website is incorporating a CDN, however, it will take the data from the servers closest to the visitor, resulting in faster performance. A CDN will also offer faster download times and ensure that online transactions take place seamlessly thereby resulting in more sales and customer satisfaction.
No Geographical Barriers: More than 34% of the world’s population are online with a substantial increase in global internet usage over the last decade. A CDN can boost your website’s reliability and response times while eliminating any latency issues that may obstruct long distance online transactions.
Usage Analytics: Many paid CDN services offer analytics and file usage reports to help you track the number of visitors you are getting, including a breakdown from the regions you are receiving your traffic.
Reduced Costs: If you are using a CDN, you won’t need high capacity infrastructures to offer high availability and better response times to your visitors.
