A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is, in terms of the primary service it offers, a set of cache servers, placed at various strategic geographical points and containing copies of the same content for distribution to users located nearby. When a user accesses a site without a CDN, they send queries to the server that hosts the site, called the origin server, which may be geographically remote from them. The request then goes through many Internet routes which can be lengthy depending on the distance to be travelled, slow and possibly congested.
The principle of a CDN is to act as an intermediary between users and the host and to issue the content from servers placed in various locations across the world, nearest to the users. For the user, the CDN will behave just as the website would directly. For the host site, it will also behave more or less as a web user would. This usually allows you to implement a CDN solution without touching the host site.
