CDN (Content Delivery Network) improves website page speed by spreading out your website content over multiple servers, which are closer to the person looking at your website and therefore quicker to send your website content to. This is a surprisingly very cheap service you can add to your hosting service for better website page load performance.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the tech that secures the connection between your website visitors and your web server, encrypting the information transferred between them. This is essential for e-commerce online shops as well as websites using forms and logins and required for GDPR personal data compliance and PCI DSS compliance.
