When using a proxy server, the internet traffic initiated from you will flow through the proxy server to the destination. The destination website will send the results back to you through the proxy server (this doesn’t happen all the time). If...

The cloud has many uses such as storing and managing data, running applications or delivering content and services like video streaming and social media. These services can all be accessed online from any internet-capable device. Just...

Although theoretically, this solution would work, in practice it would be quite inefficient. Hosting the entire website on multiple servers would just take up additional space without a good purpose. Therefore, a similar yet way more efficient and optimized method was created. It was named CDN, which stands for Content...

The sheer number of internet-using devices and the fast rate of growth is putting severe pressure on the local networks that make up the internet. To combat this, simply having powerful resources are no longer sufficient. That is where...
