High Performance Blogs and Websites

Do you have a website or a blog and feel that it is getting bogged down with heavy traffic? First of all, congratulations — it is one of those problems that webmasters and bloggers would love to have. But how would you solve it? The first thing to do is to enable PHP acceleration, if your site/blog is PHP based. Although it should be straightforward (in theory), it might take a while to get it right. Sabes lo que dicen, en teoría,,en,la teoría y la práctica son lo mismo,,en,Aceleración,,en,es una fruta madura,,en,y contribuirá en gran medida a resolver sus problemas,,en,Una vez que haya extraído todo el kilometraje de la solución del acelerador,,en,es hora de incorporar una red de distribución de contenido o CDN,,en,Lo que hace una CDN es servir todos sus archivos estáticos,,en,hojas de estilo,,en,archivos javascript,,en,e incluso páginas de blog almacenadas en caché,,en,desde una red de servidores distintos al suyo,,en,Estos servidores están ubicados estratégicamente en todo el continente.,,en,y alrededor del mundo,,en,para que sus lectores reciban el contenido desde un lugar geográficamente cercano a él,,en,Además de reducir la latencia por distancia,,en,CDN también le ayuda a reducir la carga en su servidor,,en,cdn,,en,frente a la nube,,en,maxcdn,,en,El hombre como habitación china,,en,En las publicaciones anteriores de esta serie,,en, theory and practice are the same.

What a CDN does is to serve all your static files (images, style sheets, javascript files, and even cached blog pages) from a network of servers other than your own. These servers are strategically placed around the continent (and around the globe) so that your readers receive the content from a location geographically close to him. In addition to reducing the latency due to distance, CDN also helps you by reducing the load on your server.
