Why Caching Your Website on a CDN is Important

All of the files that make up your website (code, images, videos, etc…) are stored in one central location on a server. Every time someone visits your website, their computer needs to send a request to that server to display those files on their screen showing your website.

If your potential customer is located near the server in Southern Pines, NC, this process happens extremely quickly. Data travels through fiber optic cables that make up parts of the internet at about 66% of the speed of light.

Since everyone does not live directly next to the server hosting your website, distance will cause your website to load slower to different viewers.

To solve this problem, here at Sandhills Geeks, we cache (store a copy of) your website files on multiple servers across the country. Our vast content delivery network ensures your content is delivered fast regardless of your customers location.
