Hello Experts Exchange!
To start, here's a little background on the issue: We have a company website that is currently hosted on InMotion Hosting
and was written in php. This website is used to generate pdf documents that vary in size from 250KB to over 2MB.
Recently, we've expanded to include more staff members and more pdf documents are being generated on this company website. The issue that I'm running into is the load on the server.
I'd like to reduce the load on our server and I've read that a CDN is a good solution to this problem. Is
a CDN the right solution? If it is, can someone walk me through what it takes to get a CDN on our website? I'm looking for a high-level approach such as 1) here's why you should use a CDN 2) go sign up for a CDN such as Amazon CloudFront 3) here's a high level approach on how to use it.
If I'm not phrasing my question right, please let me know and I'll try to clarify.
