It is now widely proven that the success of an e-commerce portal in terms of business and sales is directly proportional, in addition to the design of the UX, also to the loading speed and the times of response of the various pages of the site itself.
A slow and non-responsive online shop, built with WooCommerce, is equivalent to low sales and revenue, as your users may become impatient, abandoning navigation even before the web page fully charge.
On the other hand, a responsive, fast, and secure website attracts more customers, increasing website traffic, increasing your online store's total sales and revenue.
In this sense, the adoption of a content delivery network (CDN) aimed at improving the performance of your website is an ideal approach that, with a very contained and limited intervention , can bring a significant performance improvement as well as immediate.
Amazon CloudFront is the Amazon Web Services CDN service that helps improve the performance of your website by securely delivering applications, static and dynamic data, APIs, multimedia and video to customers around the world with high transfer speeds and low latency.
Thanks to the potential of AWS and the experience in creating digital solutions in various areas, OMNYS is able to activate in a few hours a Content Delivery Network (CDN) such as Amazon CloudFront on your WooCommerce site, allowing you to get an immediate return both in terms of accelerating the overall performance of your website and improving the customer experience and sales conversions.
What is Amazon CloudFront
Amazon CloudFront is a reliable tool for distributing your website content around the world. More precisely, Amazon CloudFront accelerates the distribution of static files as they are stored in its geographically distributed cache on its network of edge locations (data centers devoted only to a fast delivery of content distributed in a widespread way globally).
With AWS, in a few simple steps, you can activate an Amazon CloudFront distribution on your e-commerce site to automatically deliver static content through these data centers or high-performance, ultra-low-latency edge networks, distributed globally.
In addition to this, Amazon CloudFront offers several features and optimization options.
Let's see the main:
Amazon CloudFront's global edge network enables low-latency, reliable, and high-throughput connectivity. It utilizes a global network of more than 410 points of presence, including more than 400 edge locations and 13 mid-tier regional caches in more than 90 cities in 47 countries.
In particular, the Amazon CloudFront platform is equipped with the intelligence that allows it to identify the edge location closest to the client that is browsing the site, thus guaranteeing a delivery of cached content with a high transfer rate and the best possible performance.
Amazon CloudFront provides highly reliable security metrics, scalability, and high performance for all content and applications, offering various privacy and encryption capabilities of communication. Amazon CloudFront, in combination with AWS Shield, AWS WAF, and Amazon Route 53, provides flexible, layered security against a variety of attacks.
AWS's fast data transfer speed will allow your website to load in the blink of an eye.
The flexible pricing structure makes Amazon CloudFront even more reliable.
