Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Should I host Videos on a CDN?

Well that’s a good question, it all depends on the bandwidth you have available, for instance if you have a whole host of private videos and your own dedicated servers, your customers will still no doubt have buffering issues if it’s a busy website.  Having your Videos on a CDN will reduce the server load and reduce the wait time / buffering for your visitors / customers.

 

What about a CDN for my eCommerce Store?

This all depends on how busy your store is, however I must stress that any image intensive website will work much faster on a CDN, thus giving your customers or visitors a much better experience.

 

Why do you only offer a Managed Service?

We charge a flat £5 per month per website to monitor and keep your CDN Service Healthy.

The reason we like to handle things is that, in the long term it’s faster and cheaper for you, our customer.  Most people struggle to set up their CDN’s or fully understand how to upload the files (it’s not a simple FTP operation), or just purely want the hassle of it all.

For a one off fee we will install the required plugins / addons / code to your website and transfer all of the required files to the Content Delivery Network, the CDN will be kept up to date from then on uploading any new images to the CDN automatically.

The average price of setting up a CDN on a WordPress site is around £50-£100, this mostly depends on the age of your WordPress site, if it’s a WP E-Commerce site, and how much media  you have on it.

NOTE: If you require support or files uploading then there may be an additional cost depending on the file sizes, any costs will be made clear before any work is done, as with any service we provide.

 

What if I only want to host a Video on the Cloud?

If you simply want to host your companies Video or Brochures then we can host them for a one off flat rate based on the pricing table above, depending on the size of the files we may also add an upload cost.  For example if you send us a CD/DVD/USB Drive with 10GB of Data to upload you will be charged at £5/GB uploaded, this is to cover our admin time and connection usage.

 

What are you upload charges?

Because it’s a managed service only we and your website (via its API Access) are allowed to upload files to the Cloud.  Our costs are a flat one off cost of £5/GB.   Please ensure that the files you send are the complete files, if you re-send an amended video that’s 2GB big we will invoice you again per GB.  Please note when charging we round up to the nearest GB.

 

*Website load time and customer conversions depend on your websites current load time, it’s a known fact that customers will leave a website that loads too slowly, or if they cannot find the information or products fast enough.  Having a faster loading website can increase your customer retention and increase sales.
