What is a CDN, and why should you use it?

CDN means “Content Delivery Network” or "Content Distribution Network." It’s a system of computers around the world, containing copies of website data. Essentially, a CDN lets your visitors access your Joomla website faster. Imagine the Internet as a bunch of computers all over the world. Each computer store the website data that you see when you browse the web. If the website you visit is stored on a computer on the other side of the world, it will take longer to load on your computer.

Nobody likes a slow loading website. Your website visitors might even leave your site before it loads. When you use jomCDN, it changes everything! By tapping into a content delivery network, your website visitors will access the copy of your website data that is nearest to them, delivered by a series of ultra-fast cloud-based servers, rather than pulling the content directly from your hosted server. This means faster loading content, and happier website visitors, who are far more likely to stay and browse your site.

Amazon S3, Amazon CloudFront and MaxCDN have a nominal monthly charge, paid separately from the price of our jomCDN subscription. This charge varies, however most monthly bills average under $1.50/month.

"I’ve used JomCDN on a few sites now (configured with Amazon S3 and Cloudfront.) Installation sounds complicated at first, but if you follow the instructions step-by-step you'll be fine. I had a small problem on one site, and the support was excellent; corePHP adjusted a setting and then everything worked perfectly. Most importantly, it does what it says - it has dramatically improved the load time of each site I've installed it on!”

"A must-have for any Joomla site!"


"With additional tweaking, I've gotten the site down to the one second range, almost as fast as Google or Yahoo's home page! Who says Joomla can't be used for professional-quality sites!!! jomCDN is a must-have in my opinion."

“jomCDN...immediately cut my homepage load time from around 4.5 seconds to around 2.5 seconds. Two seconds makes a tremendous difference in terms of whether a person will stay on your site or move on to the next Google hit!"
