When you are hunting down all of those critical SEO enhancements to get that winning edge over your competitor, one topic that shouldnt be overlooked is the CDN or Content Delivery Network.

Amazon CloudFront is a highly customizable content delivery network offered by Amazon Web Services.

When you use a CDN, you are essentially pre-positioning your web assets (images, scripts, files) at edge locations (servers) that have been strategically positioned throughout the world.  These servers work together to serve the request faster by shortening the distance those requests need to travel.   Clear as mud?  Dont worry!

CDN’s can be complex but rest assured, DevOps and Platforms can provision and maintain your world class CDN with your privately generated security certificates and we also do all the work to integrate the CDN into WordPress.

We see this as a requirement for good SEO and therefore we’ve made it so that this service comes standard with any of our hosting contracts for all of our clients!
