Software systems are developed in-house. This means we are not reliant on any 3rd party for new features and fixes

Many useful features are implemented: flash/flv pseudo streaming, h264 pseudo streaming, bandwidth throttling, hotlink protection - and we are accepting requests for more useful features!

Useful features

Video Streaming

The majority of cdn content is video and images. For the webmaster, making sure their videos are seekable is important to prevent losing visitors

Bandwidth Throttling

This very useful feature enables the webmaster to customise the download rate of content. This is especially useful for video streaming to prevent the user downloading the full file and only watching a few seconds of it. By regulating the speed, download speed can match the video bitrate, saving big on overall bandwidth usage.

Hotlink prevention

Due to the unique way we handle requests, links can be set to expire after a period of time. Therefore if someone hotlinks your content, it won't last for long.
