Reduce initial server response time (TTFB)

With 14,000+ peering partners and intelligent request routing, Gcore CDN has an average latency of 30 ms around the world. Our CDN service allows you to cut down the initial server response time for your WordPress website.


Reduce page load time

Our caching servers are located closely to your users so all their requests will be served faster. The shorter distance means we can deliver more data per second to minimize the page load time.

Reduce size of transferring files

Our CDN uses Brotli and Gzip compression algorithms that significantly lower the size of the content on your WordPress website: text, images, videos and others. Using Brotli, you can decrease LCP metric from 2.8 to 1.9 seconds. WebP conversion can provide up to 3 times smaller file size than PNG.

Fast webpages

make SEO better

Search engine rankings are heavily influenced by website behavioural factors. This includes when users experience slow website pages, which you cannot improve alone. To measure and improve user experience on the web, Google revealed Core Web Vitals, the key website performance metrics you need to follow.


The Gcore CDN helps your WordPress website load faster, increase its Core Web Vitals score, and, in turn, reach a higher SERP ranking.

This approach provides you with additional value: all static and dynamic content of the website will be secured at layers L3 and L4.
