Frequently Asked Questions
- How does AccuWebHosting CDN Work?
There are two layers: CDN edge servers (spreaded Geographically) which cache content, and deliver to end users; the core CDN network (AccuWebHosting CDNaaS) which redirects content requests from end users to the most suitable edge server. When end user browse your static content, core CDN component decides the nearest edge server location and delivers content from that edge server.
- What CDN services/protocols are currently available?
The AccuWebHosting CDN platform currently supports HTTP Pull, where content is replicated to local edge servers as end users request that content. Future releases will support HTTP Push (where content is replicated to edge servers when it is created at the origin), as well as streaming support for various video protocols.
- How does AccuWebHosting CDN pricing work?
AccuWebHosting offers you fixed price CDN hosting plan. Our introductory plan offers access to 10 GB of bandwidth per month.
- What happens if I exceed my allocated bandwidth?
If allocated bandwidth is exceeded, additional 10 GB bandwidth can be purchased for @ $3.95 Month.
- What’s an Edge / POP server?
Edge servers cache web content and deliver it to website visitors. They are virtual appliances that are deployed on hypervisors, on various Geographical locations and managed just like VMs.
- We have a domain hosted on your servers and we are interested in the CDN service. Can you please provide more information on how to do this?
CDN: A content delivery network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers on the internet. It is an interconnected system of computers on the internet that provides Web content rapidly to numerous users by duplicating the content on multiple servers.
CDNs are used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to deliver static web-content, but this technology is especially well suited to streaming audio, video, and Internet Television (IPTV) programming. Availing CDN service for you domain is simple and affordable.
In CDN, your website's static content is cached on geographically spread POP servers. This content is refreshed every 60 minutes. When a visitor from Europe is trying to access your website hosted in the United States, all the static content is delivered to him from the nearest EU POP server.
Another example is if a visitor is accessing your website from Los Angles, all the static content is delivered from the nearest LA POP.

Simply signing up for a CDN plan allows access to the technology and takes 5 minutes to get started. The AccuWebHosting team will assist you with all the technical setup involved in your hosting account.

- If I purchase CDN from you, can I see my videos live at mobile with RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol)?
Yes, CDN content will be seamlessly distributed on your Mobile browsers. You can see Live videos through your Mobile device with RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol).
- How will CDN hosting work with bandwidth on the cloud servers you offer?
Bandwidth usage will be as following (this is equally applicable for websites hosted on traditional servers and cloud servers): If you enable the CDN feature for your website then all the static content will be fetched from our nearest Edge server (Nearest POP server from the location of the Website user). As such, static content will consume CDN bandwidth (10 GB), and all other content will use bandwidth from the cloud server/cloud plan you have purchased.
- I am looking for CDN hosting can you explain how it works?
CDN mainly works on two URLs.
The first URL is the Source URL, generally any URL on your website.
For example, http://images.accuwebhosting.com/ or http://www.accuwebhosting.com/static/, etc.
The second URL is a CDN URL.
This URL is created by AccuWebHosting.Com and mapped to your Source URL.
For example, http://cdn.accuwebhosting.com/.
CDN takes your data from the "Source URL" and places it on many different edge servers around the world so that high traffic content can be delivered to the end user as quickly as possible. The same static content is distributed to your site visitors using the "CDN URL".
When a request for content is made using the "CDN URL", CDN evaluates the location of the request and routes it to the nearest edge location. This will provide the lowest latency and best connection speed for the requester. The file is then transferred directly from the edge location's server to the user that requested it. As a result, you will get the fastest possible load times, better visitor experience and less load on your servers. As a result of these advantages, an added benefit is it can help improve your Google search rankings.
- If I change the DNS for CDN hosting, my site will not go down. Right?
No, you don’t need to change your site's DNS for CDN hosting. You just need to add a CNAME record in your domain. Your website will not face any downtime.
- How can I check from which location do you serve my traffic?
Use any of these tools -
Just Ping your CDN Hostname from the command prompt for Windows, and Ping your website from SSH for Linux. You will receive an IP address from where the static content is being fetched. For example, Open your Command prompt and type "ping cdn.accuwebhosting.com". The IP address displayed will be of the nearest edge location from where the content is served. You can compare the above ping command with new ping command "ping www.accuwebhosting.com" to see the difference in latency.
www.accuwebhosting.com is our non CDN version of the website.
- Is it possible to have more than one CNAMEs pointing at the same origin?
Yes, you do not need to create individual CDNs to have more CNAMEs for the same origin. Send us a request with the list of CNAMEs you would like to use and we will add them for you.
- Price $3.95/10GB is for per website or per VPS?
It is per Domain per Month. Rather than the "per domain" term, the ideal term should be "per URL". This URL can be used for unlimited number of domains.
For example, you sign up for a CDN Plan for the Source URL as http://source.yourdomainname.com and CDN URL as http://cdn.yourdomainname.com.
1st URL: http://source.yourdomainname.com ==> This is a source URL. All static original content (images, css, etc.) will be published here.
We will setup the 2nd URL: http://cdn.yourdomainname.com ==> Any content that is published in the source URL is distributed over CDN using the 2nd URL
You can use this CDN URL for UNLIMITED domain names.
- I have one website that is targeted for the entire United States and one website targets only California. Will CDN work for me?
CDN will be helpful to both the websites.
For the California targeted website, "static content" will be delivered from CA edge servers. Currently w have 4 POP servers in CA in various locations.
For US targeted website, we have more than 30 edge servers in different locations. So, content will be delivered from the closest Geo location to your site visitor.
- What will be the percentage increase in average page load?
CDN improves the speed of delivery of the static content. Improvement cannot be counted in terms of percentage, but for CDN oriented websites, the pinging latency for static content will be decreased and this will improve the performance of static content of your website.
For example, if your server is located in USA and your visitor is from Australia, the average latency for them is around 170 ms to 300 ms. Using the CDN, for Australian site visitors, the static content will be delivered from Canberra, Mellbourne, Perth or Sydney edge servers and the latency will be around 20 ms to 50 ms.
We have 91 CDN Pops within almost 34 countries. Moreover, if you want to test the performance of the CDN then you can easily check the difference between the pinging latency of the following URLs:
www.accuwebhosting.com - NON CDN version of AccuWebHosting.Com. (ping command will be "ping www.accuwebhosting.com")
cdn.accuwebhosting.com - CDN URL for AccuWebHosting.Com. (ping command will be "ping cdn.accuwebhosting.com")
- How do I know consumption of traffic of my CDN package?
You can login to your billing area "https://manage.accuwebhosting.com" and check the CDN usage.
Moreover, if you have any questions regarding CDN hosting, you can raise a support ticket or initiate a chat from our website. We are available 24/7.
- I am looking for CDN targeted to the US market. How is your service performance in USA?
