CloudwaysCDN Is Essential If You Want to Reach Globally

Do you want to get more traffic on your WooCommerce store this Holiday Season? Before you become a seasoned WooCommerce store with big sales, there are many things that you can do to get a lot of traffic to take advantage of a grand opening and — one of the main thing you can do is: integrate CDN on WooCommerce.

Interactions between businesses often rely on WooCommerceCDNs, as do businesses that serve online content to customers. Ecommerce stores serving a global audience utilize CDNs to ensure that all customers have a pleasant user experience, regardless of location.

Recently, we, at Cloudways, have partnered with StackPath (formerly known as MaxCDN) that provides easy activation for the CloudwaysCDN. Note that, for a single website, the Monthly Subscription of a CND costs $1 per 25GB of bandwidth.

The purpose of CloudwaysCDN is to protect the customers from the hassle of going through multiple billing accounts for separate WooCommerce CDN. CloudwaysCDN is the “powerful and affordable global reach for your business.” With the integration of CloudwaysCDN into online WooCommerce store, your webpages will load faster irrespective of the location of the server and data center.

In this article, I am going to tell you how you can integrate CloudwaysCDN with your WooCommerce-based ecommerce store. So let’s the process!

Set up CloudwaysCDN on Cloudways Platform

I am assuming that you have already set up a WooCommerce-based ecommerce store. If not then learn how to install and set up a WooCommerce store on Cloudways Platform. After that, go to Applications in the top left menu bar and select WooCommerce. For further reference, see the image below.

Under the selected application, click CloudwaysCDN tab in the sidebar section.

Click CREATE button, then you will see the following options.
