CDN stands for content distribution network, which is a worldwide system of servers that all contain a copy of your site content. When a customer comes to your site and CDN is enabled, they'll access the site content via the server that is geographically closest to them. For example, a shopper in New York will receive your content from a server near New York, while a shopper in London will receive your content from a server near London.
This technology is possible thanks to our partnership with Akamai, a leading CDN provider that powers ecommerce giants like Apple, Staples, Land's End, QVC and Overstock.com. Volusion is providing you with this cutting-edge technology free of charge.
