CDN

cdnA Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a great way to speed up your site.

Think of it as a system of servers around the world that store a copy of your website. When a visitor views your site this network knows where the visitor is located and directs them to the physically closest server.

The closer your visitors to the servers the faster the pages load and the happier they are. Looking for more details? Read our Joomla CDN tutorial.
