CDN (content delivery network) is the key to speed up the websites for today’s webmaster and is logical too. You don’t have to look for other resources to speed up your site.

CDN77 Review
For all those who are new to CDN, it is a system of connected web servers which deliver the pages and contents to web users based on geographic location, content delivery server, and web page origin.

The service is quite effective to deliver the content to the user effectively and quickly. CDN is mainly recommended for the sites having decent to high traffic and have global reach. The closer is the CDN to your location the delivery of the content and other resources will be faster to you.

How CDN works?

The working of CDN is fairly simple. Here the request will be fulfilled by the server which is nearest to the requester. There will be N number of servers on the CDN network spread across different geography and when someone will request for a web page, the requested server will look for the server which is closer to the user who has made a request. And the request will be fulfilled by the nearest server instead of the originating server.

Here the CDN copies the web pages to all their network servers and when the user makes a request, cached pages are served first and if the page is not cached, then the request is getting fulfilled by the originating server. The process is transparent and helps to speed up the request as every time a new request is not being made. Here is a simple image explaining the same.
