Content delivery network - FAQ
Since the loading speed of a website is critical for a business, your online shop should load just as quickly for users in Australia as for users in the United Kingdom. If it doesn't, you could lose this customer to another online shop that has faster-loading content. In other words, the more your clientele is spread around the world, the more you should rely on a CDN.
If you are unsure which packages allow you to use a content delivery network, our support team will be happy to assist you at any time.
- First, book the appropriate hosting plan for your needs and make sure that it includes the use of a content delivery network.
- If you already have a package that allows CDN use, you can book CDN Plus at any time in the 1&1 IONOS customer shop.
- Activate your CDN Plus package with just a few clicks via your Control Centre.
Then select the SSL encryption you want from the two options. Depending on the option, you may also need your own 1&1 IONOS SSL certificate for your CDN. This can also be booked at a low price or you can activate it immediately if the certificate is already included in your package.
We have compiled more information on CDN and SSL encryption, as well as additional links, in the 1&1 IONOS Help Centre.
Long loading times can cause users and potential customers to jump ship. If, for example, you're hosting a US website without using a CDN, visitors from abroad – especially from far-away countries – may notice significantly longer loading times. This usually leads to an increased bounce rate. With a content delivery network, a network of servers in different data centers all over the world, and correspondingly fast loading times, risks like these can be minimised.
We offer you the powerful CDN service provided by our partner Cloudflare along with our WordPress Pro packages. By opting for our service, you benefit from reliable performance, quick loading times and maximum security. The official Cloudflare plugin for WordPress ensures that your website runs optimally on the WordPress platform, and can be reached quickly and directly by all visitors worldwide.
