Yes and no, it depends on your server location and target audience. Example if your target audience is global, the answer will be YES. But if your target audience is local, I’ll suggest use local web hosting provider.
What is CDN? And how is CDN work?
CDN stands for content delivery network, is a geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data centers. The goals is to shorter the distance of website and make it loads faster.
Example if your web hosting in US and your target audience is global, for site visitor that live it German want to visit your website, he will need to connect your server all the way from German, it will cause latency when loading your content and make your website load slower.
What is the advantage of CDN?
CDN will speed up your website by bring your website content to it global network, it will minimize the latency, make it loads from the closer network, in the case it will loads from German server.
In layman terms means moving the beer store next to your house, so you no longer need to travel so far to get a beer 🍺
Do I need CDN if I server local?
It depends on your country and your target audience. Example if your business website in Singapore and your target audience is Singaporean, I will suggest you use local hosting provider with local network. Not hosting provider with US network.
But if your business website is in US and your target audience is whole US, I’ll suggest you use CDN, example in BunnyCDN, they have 11 network servers in US itself. Fast loading website bring better user experience, Google already announced that page experience signals will be included in the Google Search ranking.
