Content Delivery Network

Happy Friday!

This week was amazing!

I, now, I have the content calendar set up and it goes as follows:
+ Sunday: “Church Pigeon Podcast” share the weekly podcast through iTunes and Soundcloud on Sundays.

+ Monday: “Local Lessons” share about local success on Mondays.

+ Tuesday: “Website Wisdom” share website tips on Tuesdays (#2)
Wednesday: “Church Pigeon Creates” share services on Wednesdays.

Thursday: “Social Success” talk about social media on Thursdays.

Friday: “Tech Tips” share about technologies for churches/business on Fridays.

This week’s Tech Tips is going to cover CDNs, because we want to be a global church.

CDN is short for content delivery network.

A content delivery network (CDN) is a system of distributed servers (network) that deliver webpages and other Web content to a user based on the geographic locations of the user, the origin of the webpage and a content delivery server.

This service is effective in speeding the delivery of content of websites with high traffic and websites that have global reach. The closer the CDN server is to the user geographically, the faster the content will be delivered to the user. CDNs also provide protection from large surges in traffic.

A few options include:
+ CloudFlare’s free CDN at https://www.cloudflare.com

+ AWS | Amazon CloudFront CDN at https://aws.amazon.com/cloudfront/

+ CDN by MaxCDN https://www.maxcdn.com/

Because of the speeding of content delivery, a CDN is a must have. If we are going to be a global church, we must use a CDN.
