Most often, website or web application content are stored and delivered from a centralized server in one location to end-users that can be located anywhere. This is what we call traditional hosting.
Traditional hosting works very well with limitation as it does not take in consideration unexpected needs and can not scale rapidly. In this sense, user acquisition is not favoured as page load time can drastically increase and user experience will immediately affected.
A Content Delivery Network (aka CDN) is composed of a set of servers located in data centres all around the world and hosts content websites such as images, videos and all static non-html content (css, js, etc).
Specific users localised in small geographical regions can then benefit of a fast content delivery, which can be an appropriate service for businesses solely having a single targeted region. However, once their user reach expands to other regions of the world, users will encounter slower page load time resulting in user retention decrease.
By having several points of presence (PoPs) all over the world, the content delivery speed is increased as the information is closer to the users therefore taking less time to reach the users.
However, it may be that, a particular CDN provider delivers excellent service in China but may not be as efficient in Europe, whereas another’s weakness may be China and strongpoint Europe. It is unlikely that a single CDN provider masters all regions.
