How a CDN works

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is all about making a website load faster for all users, wherever they are in the world.

This is done by storing (caching) copies of your website on servers at the network edge. For example, if your website is hosted at a UK data centre, there might be a delay if you try to access that site from the USA. So a copy of your website is stored on a server closer to the user, called a Point of Presence (POP).

Multiple copies of your site’s data is stored at different POPs throughout the world, so your site will load faster in remote places. Your users will navigate your site more efficiently, wherever they are.

While it's good for users, the 20iCDN has other advantages. Search engines love fast-loading sites so there’s an SEO benefit to having a CDN.

Our free CDN

A CDN is essential if you want your business or side hustle to have an international market. The 20iCDN offers the same edge caching features as paid CDNs from providers like Cloudflare.

While it has one-click activation, we give advanced users the option of development mode, and dynamic/custom cache settings: the freedom to experiment.

You can purge the cache in a click to make instant updates. Nuisance visitors can be blocked by IP address or country.

Stay on top of site performance and monitor for problems with our comprehensive CDN statistics. Users get raw data on 20iCDN activity, presented in charts. So, you can make informed decisions on traffic trends and monitor for issues following site changes.

CDN
Fast loading websites anywhere

Our global network will edge-cache full pages close to where the user is based. It works with our StackCache WordPress module – no plugins required – as well as any other software that sets public cache control headers. So it works for any site: Linux, Windows or WordPress.

CDN
The same network as the web giants

Our CDN makes use of the same internet exchange points (neutral data centres) used by AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and many other leading tech companies. Whatever your business or project, you’ll get enterprise-level connectivity with the CDN.

CDN
Reliability and uptime

Improve reliability and uptime of your website, wherever your user is based. As your site is served from data centres close to them, there are fewer ‘hops’ in the network. The internet service provider only needs to route the user to our nearest POP, reducing the potential number of problems on the journey.

Supercharge your site with our CDN

If your website is bloated, it may load slowly even if you use our fast hosting and 20iCDN. Our Website Acceleration Suite slims-down the data payload of your site, without affecting its appearance or function.

Our Website Acceleration Suite includes over 40 different ways to improve your website’s speed. You can save performance settings as templates and apply that template to any other website in your account.

CDN: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

All about the 20iCDN.

Why is a CDN important?

For any company that has an international presence – or a new business that would like an international presence – a CDN is important. It means that your website will load fast anywhere in the world.

Fast sites lead to more sales and better search performance. Whether you want to make money from home, or already run a successful online business, you need a CDN.

You might think CDN may not be important to you if you’re a local ‘bricks and mortar’ business that only serves your nearby community. That’s understandable, but having a fast site gives you SEO advantages, even locally. So even if you don’t have an international market, it’s still worth activating your free CDN and making use of its website speed acceleration.

We say: since ours is free, use it all the time! There’s no disadvantage to using it, and unlike some providers, the 20iCDN doesn’t charge you for the bandwidth you use.

The only time you might want to turn off any of the Website Acceleration Suite optimisations are if they interfere with any complex functions on your site. Our friendly support team is here to help if you have any difficulties.
