Advantages of using Shoptet CDN

If you need to include own script or stylesheet, we strongly recommend using Shoptet CDN ( There are several advantages when using Shoptet CDN:

  1. Requests made through CDN contain less cookies (less data to upload to the server – especially important on a mobile device).
  2. Content on CDN is cached and served faster than through e-shop domain.
  3. CDN requests do not count towards limit of concurrent connections to the same domain name.
  4. There is no need for additonal DNS lookup.
  5. Some browsers utilize dns-prefetch and preconnect instructions. This reduces time of DNS lookup and connection establishing.
  6. No risk of outage caused by slow 3rd party server.
