I just received an email from my affiliate partners over at Max CDN announcing they are having a March Madness Sale on their Content Delivery Network Plans.
Content Delivery Network or CDN is a system of distributed servers (network) that deliver webpages and other Web content to a user based on the geographic locations of the user, the origin of the webpage and a content delivery server. Thanks Webopedia!
Basically what a CDN does is make your website load faster for the user based on their geographical location.
My WebHosting Company – HostGator is located in Dallas Texas.
So when you visit my site, your computer basically has to go to Dallas Texas for it to load on your computer.
That’s great if you live near Texas.
However, if you are visiting my site from Tokyo then that is a long way to travel and my website will load really slow for you.
And that is where a CDN comes in.
CDN services like Max CDN have webservers located all over the world.
So if you are located in Tokyo and you access my site you won’t have to travel to Texas.
Instead, you will be served my website from a server that is located much closer to Tokyo which means my site will load very quickly on your computer.
Google recently announced that they include the page loading time of your website when it comes to ranking your website in their search engines.
A slow loading website is much more likely to get pushed to the back of the line in Google search.
People are really “picky” with their time and they don’t have five seconds to wait for slow loading websites.
So, to help with this problem, CDN services were created and Max CDN is offering 50% off all of their CDN packages until March 31st.
Also, the more pictures and posts you have on your blog, the slower it is going to load and that is why using a CDN service is the best choice for website owners.
Also Max CDN offers free set-up of their CDN services which is a real bonus because I know that the technical stuff is beyond a lot of you reading this.
Many top bloggers out there use Max CDN to turbo charge their websites performance.
“We promise our average response time will be under 2 minutes. We will have an engineer available at all levels of support and we will proactively help you to become even faster.” – Max CDN
