A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a shortcut that minimizes the geographic distance between your visitors and your website's server to minimize page load time and maximize your customers’ experience. When extreme performance is required to push content to your CDN servers (Akamai CDN), or enviable CDN speed is needed to deliver content quickly to your users (Cloudflare® CDN), count on Liquid Web products to deliver.

Cloudflare® CDN for Your Site
A Content Delivery Network (CDN) can dramatically reduce page load time by serving site content from servers located close to your visitors – anywhere in the world. Cloudflare also caches and optimizes that content on their network to reduce file sizes and make the pages on your site load even faster. Liquid Web’s integration with Cloudflare allows you to set up, manage, and monitor the service directly from your server dashboard.
Cloudflare Takes Performance to the Next Level
Cloudflare’s network spans thousands of servers and grows bigger every day. Adding Cloudflare can dramatically reduce your site’s page sizes and improve page load times thanks to the service’s web content optimization and caching features. You’ll also get the benefits of load balancing, which spreads the load across the entire Cloudflare network and can help your site handle traffic spikes better.
