Earlier today we introduced you to KeyCDN from Switzerland, a cogent new content delivery network (CDN). They offer a solid performance boost with their twenty (and counting) globally distributed server locations. If you are unsure whether a CDN would really speed up your website, read on. To complete our introduction of the world’s most price-worthy CDN, we convinced them to offer three accounts with one TB of traffic to our dear readers. All you need to do is answer a simple question. All you need to have is the luck of the draw…
KeyCDN: Radical Performance Enhancements at a Radical Price
I won’t go into much detail now, just read our in-depth review of what KeyCDN has to offer, what it does differently and why it is the best choice for website owners these days. A short description for the TLDR generation will have to suffice here.
The idea of a CDN (Content Delivery Network) is to deliver unchanging content (mostly all types of media, as well as scripts ) to the visitor’s browser using a global network of specialized servers. Your own server or web space is then relieved from this task and able to concentrate on pure page generation and delivery. The larger static elements are stored on the servers of the CDN provider. This not only saves traffic and processing power on your server, but also increases the performance of your web presence through intelligent and local delivery as well as the usually higher performance of the CDN infrastructure.
CDNs are not a new invention. They have been around for more than a decade. What’s new is that they are not only affordable for large-scale companies any longer. With KeyCDN, content delivery becomes affordable to basically anyone. And that’s great because the not so big customers are those who would be natural customers for that kind of service as they almost always lack the money as well as the knowhow to build scalable architecture left to their own devices.
To cut a long story short: If you own a website and have more than only your family members visiting it, you could well use a CDN. KeyCDN is the place to go.
KeyCDN Giveaway: Three Accounts and One Terabyte Traffic Each
As you’ve read in our review earlier today, KeyCDN sports a completely transparent approach to pricing. There are no long-term contracts or fixed volumes to buy. It’s all pay-as-you-go. You only buy the traffic you need.
Three of our readers get the chance to win a free account with a total of one Terabyte of traffic. They have six months time to use this one TB up until it expires. Time enough to get an idea of how monumental or not this boost can become.
Participating is easy and not restricted in any way. Wherever on this globe you happen to be located; as long as you have internet access feel free to try your luck. There are only two things you need to do to leave us a valid entry. The first thing is entering a valid email address. Think about it, and you’ll know why. Without a valid address, we’ll be having a hard time trying to notify you about your prize.
The second thing is to answer this question:
What do you think is the most important performance optimization factor for your website?
You need not be too elaborate. Phrases such as “From all I know it’s chocolate” will not be considered valid, however. So, try your luck, chevaliers of fortune.
The winners will be drawn after the giveaway closes on Tuesday, 3rd of March, 6.00 pm CET.
