A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a system consisting of multiple servers, which are placed in different locations around the world. When you use a CDN with your site, all those servers will be loaded with versions of your site’s static files. This usually includes code like CSS and JavaScript, images, documents, videos, and other data. The CDN servers simply copy static files from your origin host server to deliver them to your visitors faster, saving your server bandwidth, and securing it from direct attacks too!

Cloudflare is one of the most popular CDN services around, mainly because they offer a free plan that is ideal for personal websites and blogs, or anyone who wants to try out a CDN.

During today’s meetup, we practically went through a step-by-step implementation of Cloudflare to boost a wordpress website security & load time. We also looked at other CDN alternatives available.
