A CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a highly-distributed platform of servers that helps minimize delays in loading web page content by reducing the physical distance between the server and the user. This helps users around the world view the same high-quality content without slow loading times.

On our Ventuno platform, we have our CDN as well as some CDN providers such as:

a) AWS

b) Akamai

c) Stackpath

If required, we can also integrate some of the third-party service providers of your choice.

Integrating Ventuno CDN:

1. Under the left menu, Select My profile > Manage CDN.

2. You can select the CDN of your choice.
