Sooner or later, someone will notice how slow your web site is and you don’t want that to be a customer.
Slow web sites lose you customers
Statistics show that you’ll lose your customers if your web site takes longer than 5 seconds to load.
What you might not have realised, though, is that it’s not just rich media that’s the culprit. A 5kb JPG image viewed 10,000 times requires 50 MB, and if you multiply that every day for a month that’s 1.5GB per month. What most people don’t realise is that a standard web hosting package is just not geared up to deliver large files, or small files to many people because you’re likely using a shared platform (shared with the hosting company’s other customers), and will likely only be a 100MB/sec link to the web.
Offload your rich media and static content to our global network
Web servers are meant for one thing only: serving web pages. Increasingly, though, we find more and more examples of media-intensive web sites that do not make use of a CDN, or Content Delivery Network. CDN’s are custom-built and are designed to carry only static content and rich media. They contain all sorts of clever proprietary technology that enables them to move content around their network to different geographical regions and cache content so that it is always delivered by the endpoint physically closest to the person viewing your web page.
