Edge CDN FAQ
An Edge content delivery network (CDN) stores and serves images and other assets from a collection of servers distributed across regions to speed up content delivery to users. It uses nodes and “edge locations” to find the fastest route to the user so you can save bandwidth and lower latency.
Everyone with a hosted website should use a CDN. Because speed affects everything in our digital world, we recommend using an Edge CDN. Our Edge CDN has multiple locations around the world, so pages load fast no matter where your site visitors are.
We automatically configure the CDN on all new Managed WordPress & Managed WooCommerce hosting accounts.
Yes. The large object cache is stored on Solid State Disks to balance throughput and latency from edge servers. This includes compressed archives, documents, movies and executables.
You can set custom expire values for small and large object caches, with defaults designed to optimize traffic between origin and edge servers.
Yes. Byte-range requests allow you to deliver a specific portion of a larger file. This is commonly used when resuming large downloads or delivering a web-based media player.
We built our edge network with IPv6 enabled by default at no extra cost. All edge domain names come preconfigured with IPv6 Quad-A records.
We use HTTP/2 to help stream multiple objects through a single connection and so you can provide preload hints with the rel=preload link tag.
We use TLS 1.3. We also support TLS 1.2 with intermediate cipher suite for broad device compatibility.
Yes! We never mix storage of non-secure and secure content that your website sends us.
Yes, we compress files with next-generation Brotli compression. We also support Gzip compression if a users browser doesn’t support Brotli.
TCP BBR is designed to deliver low latency and high throughput, even when talking to users that may have latent or disrupted paths to our Edge network.
Content updates take place in the background. During this time, your visitors are served the expired (stale) object until the network has finished updating.
Our Edge CDN is not part of our dedicated server plans or enterprise cluster solutions. Nexcess seamlessly integrates with most third-party CDN cloud services, including Cloudflare. If you need an enterprise-level CDN for your servers, our expert team is happy to recommend a trusted provider.
