Knockout CDN – Improving Interactions with Your Website
A content delivery network can significantly help your website extend its reach to a global audience without sacrificing web experience.
It achieves this by solving the problem of latency. Latency is the amount of time a web visitor waits for a web page to load upon requesting access to it.
Web visitors who are far from the host server or those in another continent will suffer significant latency because of the long-distance traveled by the web request.
Through a content delivery network or CDN service, however, web requests no longer have to travel to the host server. It is instead sent to the nearest CDN server where a cached version of the web page is stored then delivered to the web visitor.
This helps your web pages load faster from any part of the globe.
Of course, speed also depends on the elements of your website. If you have UI sections that are dynamic, it can be a factor that slows download times.
Fortunately, you can use knockout CDN to solve this problem
What is Knockout CDN?
This is especially useful when you have UI sections that update dynamically because Knockout can implement these functionalities in a much simpler manner.
Some of the key components of Knockout are:
Declarative Bindings – This component provides you with a convenient way to connect your DOM elements to your own data model
Automatic UI Refresh – This component allows your UI to update automatically when there is a change in your data model’s state.
Dependency Tracking – This component that takes care of chains of relationships between model data
Template – Create nested UIs as a function of your model
Traditionally, Knockout can be hosted on the origin server, but it can also work with CDN providers. What you can do is reference Knockout using the Handlebar CDN combination. This allows for faster and more reliable delivery of these Knockout components that allows the interactive components of your UI to not slow down web page loading.
Benefits of Knockout CDN
The main advantage of having your CDN work with Knockout is that it optimizes the interactive parts of your UI so that it does not negatively affect the loading speed of your web pages.
However, the advantages do not stop there. By signing up with BelugaCDN, one of the top providers in the industry, your website can enjoy different benefits including:
