CDN (Content Delivery Network) has helped aid in website acceleration for over 30 years with great success. Decades of development have paved the way for CDN carriers to established sophisticated networks with global coverage to accelerate web pages, downloads, applications, live streaming content, games, and over-the-top services all over the world. It's how we reach people and get data to users no matter where they are in the globe.
Although website performance has significantly improved globally by adopting CDN technology, there is no viable solution for the China market. Common problems users experience include:
Webpages do not properly load and users are given error messages such as “Server Time Out”, “Cannot Open Page”, or “Domain Name Does Not Exist”
Websites are blocked for unknown reasons without notification or arbitration. Changing IP addresses, as done with your typical VPN service, helps get around site blockage only works for short period of time; very inconsistent with packet loss.
Polluted DNS redirects bad IP addresses to domain names.
SEO: Chinese search engines Baidu, which is similar to Google in China, will not rank foreign IP addresses to appear in relevant searches.
Chinese search engines such as Baidu will determine the page loading speed to be too slow and will not rank the web site to be relevant in searches. Having a solid connection without interruption makes a huge difference in website ranking.
Company websites play a major part in your brand identity. When a site fails to load or does so with poor performance it can cause a company to miss opportunities with current and future customers/users. Poor performing and slow loading websites can cause users and customers alike to become frustrated and move on to another competitor or similar provider etc.
Some companies actually choose to rebuild their site in Chinese; a "lite" website version allowing Chinese users to learn more about the company and to access their content. This is not feasible for everyone and is very time consuming. When millions are invested to build sophisticated websites with ERP CRM systems and other live data exchange mechanisms at the backend, a “lite” version cannot function properly.
