What is a CDN? (Show Answer)
A CDN stands for Content Delivert Network. It refers to a network of geographically distributed servers with the key aim of speeding up content delivery. CDNs typically do not host content, but instead commits online content to a cache which compresses and filters for enhanced rendering and delivery.
How does a CDN improve content delivery times? (Show Answer)
Through CloudFlare your content is brought closer to your customers and visitors through a network of 63 data centres spread across the globe. Other optimisations include purpose-specific hardware and software that optimise content and automatically balances heavy traffic loads to ensure consistent delivery.
What is cached by a CDN? (Show Answer)
CDNs have become versatile in their caching ability, moving past simple text and image caching to include intelligent compression of images and videos without sacrificing quality, as well as compression of web pages, JavaScript files, and stylesheets.
When will my visitors see changes I made to the website? (Show Answer)
CDNs typically refresh their caches at predetermined short intervals. An immediate refresh of your website data can be forced from the Storm Security & Performance Centre.
