Content Delivery Network (CDN)
Security for your websites
Use a CDN to protect your website from attacks
Secure global infrastructure
The CDN is built on OVH's own global network and offers worldwide interconnection, designed to naturally secure your hosting system and web applications.
With over 19 points of presence spread across Europe, North America and Asia, you'll be able to offer high availability and optimum levels of service.
Designed to prevent network attacks
Without a CDN, your hosting system is at high risk of DDoS attacks
which make your services unavailable by saturating your network connections. This type of attack consists of multiple simultaneous external requests, implying a high risk of severely reduced response times and loss of services for your users.
The CDN can protect your site from these attacks by automatically absorbing the load, and it can resolve the problem when the files stored on it are affected. The overload caused by the attack is then processed on different PoPs according to their origin, which helps to prevent server saturation. The requests will not reach your hosting servers, so they remain available to handle traffic from your users.
Avoid connection loss
In some cases it may take too long to respond to your visitors, due to hosting server saturation or increased traffic to your website. In this instance, the CDN will respond directly, the page will start loading, and your hosting system has additional time to deliver the content to the visitor.
