CDN (Content Delivery Network) is one of the essential performance optimization components for any website. It accelerates content delivery by serving the request from the nearest locations of the users.
One of the frequent questions I receive is how to find out what CDN is used on a particular site?
We all love curiosity. Isn’t it?
