How Do CDNs Work?

Why do “heavy” multi-page portals with a lot of graphic and video content sometimes open faster than sites with several pictures per page? A high resource loading speed often indicates that the site uses CDN.

Data transfer at maximum speed

In simple terms, CDN hosting is a network infrastructure with a distributed platform base that is intended to reduce content delivery time.

That is, it is a group of specially configured servers located in different geopoints. Platforms function as nodes, allowing data to be rapidly downloaded to nearby users. As a result, large CDN with surrounding information centers can significantly reduce the load time of remote sites.

The usual scheme for transferring data on the Internet (without using CDN) is implemented in such a way that all users receive information directly from a specific info center, which can be located arbitrarily far away.

CDN, on the other hand, allows you to download data instantly, within seconds. It makes no difference where the source platform is located.

Which websites should use CDN technology

The target clients of CDN providers are primarily portals with an abundance of heavy static info and streaming services. The speed of loading resources in this case seriously affects the experience of users who, in case of a serious slowdown, will simply leave the “slowing down” site or service. Speeding up web resources with heavy data is very important not only to attract an audience but also to maintain user loyalty.
