What is Content Delivery Network and how Ecwid uses it

Last updated

Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a system of computers containing copies of data, placed at various points in a network. This is done to maximize bandwidth for clients to access the data throughout the network. A client accesses a copy of the data nearest to the client, as opposed to all clients accessing the same central server.

Ecwid uses CDN widely to make the store loading very fast for any customer. 

CDN is also used for product images on Venture and higher tier plans.        Upgrade to get this feature

Ecwid`s CSS and JavaScript code is distributed to lots of servers around the world. When a customer opens your store, he will download CSS and JavaScript from the nearest server. So, if a customer is from the US, the files will be downloaded from a US server. If he is from Europe, a European server will be used. It speeds up loading of your store.
