How it useful for websites.
The goal of a CDN (Content Delivery Network) is to deliver content easily to end-users with high availability and high performance.  CDN improve websites performance when sites use CDN library because websites no need to download again if CDN library already download by other sites.

If you are thinking about using CDN, you should understand that you really need it. There is no good free cdn nowadays and every good service costs good money. That's why you should understand why your website needs it. It's not very good for all types of content, works great with leave straming etc. It shows great performance for us (adult video thematic). Here is decent knoledge base about cdn http://cdnsun.com/knowledgebase and you could find answers on your basic questions there.
