Improve the Performance of Your WordPress Website with 1&1 CDN

A content delivery network (CDN) is a network of servers located in multiple data centers around the world. The goal of a CDN is to improve the availability and performance of the web content to the end-users. The CDN caches, after the first load of the page, the static content of your website and distributes it over a network of 23 data centers around the world. Visitors to your website will get the data from the closest server to their location, enabling your site to load faster in every part of the world.

CDN Overview
  • Speeds up load times of your web content, such as images or JavaScript files
  • Shorter load times even during traffic spikes due to seasonal or marketing campaigns
  • Additional protection from hackers and spam

Improving security with 1&1 CDN

1&1 CDN protects your website by analyzing your traffic and determining what is legitimate and what is malicious. It will automatically make your website safer from spammers, SQL Injection attacks, DDoS attacks, excessive bot crawling, etc.

New features, now even better

Mirage™ – the perfect representation of images for faster loading times

Thanks to Mirage™, your images will be presented to each visitor at their optimal screen resolution based on the device they are using. It automatically detects screen size, type, and connection speed, significantly accelerating load times!

Railgun™ – up to 700% faster loading times

Railgun™ improves load time performance for websites with dynamic content by ensuring the connection between the 1&1 Server and CDN server is as fast as possible. Content that is dynamic is detected, and only changes on the website are delivered, resulting in loading times that are up to 700% faster. Railgun™ is included in the 1&1 CDN packages provided in the 1&1 Performance web hosting and 1&1 Managed Server packages.

Easy setup with just one click

1&1 CDN is available in two versions: 1&1 CDN is included free with 1&1 Unlimited and 1&1 Performance web hosting packages, and 1&1 Managed Servers. Activation is done easily via the 1&1 Control Panel. For even more security and faster loading times, we recommend upgrading to 1&1 CDN Plus. Both are valid for one domain, and apply to unlimited traffic.

    It says CDN Easy setup with just one click, but there is no link to any setup startpage. I am a customer for since 2012 and no one ever told me that I have to set this up myself. When you choose a package it tells me that it comes with CDN.

    Where and how do I install, activate or whatever the CDN thing.

    Same with a new subscription to Unlimited Pro and the new ftp as in Sftp how to I set these things up. I choose for 1and as it was simple in the past but it became more and more complicated to keep up with changes.
    The result is that my website is hardly found any longer by Google and the like and that my performance is down the drain.

    Maybe it’s better to just cancel the whole 1and1 and start all over with WIX or what ever os you try to save my should and send me some troops to help me out.

    Thank you so much.

    Kind regards
    Rob

      You can edit 1&1 CDN in your 1&1 Control Panel: https://help.1and1.co.uk/hosting-c40985/webspace-and-access-c65754/content-delivery-network-c85185/activate-1and1-cdn-plus-for-a-domain-a792591.html (It’s a UK manual here, but should also look like this in a US contract)

      I can’t see how these things are related. SFTP is only a encrypted method to upload files on your webspace. It does not do anything with the performance of your website. Also Google search results are not related to this. Can you please specify what you mean with your comment?
