Adding a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to a website is a well-known and widely adopted method of speeding up a website. A CDN is basically a median network which delivers content to a user from its location rather than the host’s location. This means that client doesn’t have to contact the host repeatedly, which speeds up the delivery.
