Professional Recommendations

  • To say I’ve had some bad experiences with web designers is an understatement. Working with Cheddar Media has restored my faith that they are not all tech heads that don’t deliver. Heidi and her team are not only the most professional web designers, they are not only web designers. They are graphic designers, user experience experts, online presence managers … and they build beautiful websites that work. My project was complicated and we took our time to get it just right and Heidi has been super patient and committed to seeing it through to the end. I couldn’t be happier with the end result and will be using Cheddar Media for all ongoing updates and cannot recommend highly enough.

  • I was in the market of changing websites and servers and was fortunate enough to have been recommended to Heidi at Cheddar Media. It was refreshing to have one to one contact with someone who was willing to create something unique for me rather than some company just giving me a template and being another number in a line. Heidi and I skyped and one thing noticed immediately was how attentive and straight forward she was with me with everything. We talked for well over an hour about concepts and within 48 hours Heidi had a concept drafted for me to look at. Simply, mind blowing! Fresh, modern and sleek which was more than I was looking for. The service did not stop there. After the initial design, Heidi was very thorough in sorting out what I really wanted from my site. There were recommendation on incorporating social media, online booking systems and blogs. All of which were talked about and researched and never pushed in a sales manner which was very refreshing. After completion, Heidi checked in with me on regular intervals to ensure everything was running smoothly even after the handover. Something I simply never received from other companies. Heidi simply provides you with what you need and truly works for you. If you are looking for a change, something unique or need guidance on how to get your site working for you then look no further. Cheddar Media is what you are looking for. Thanks again!!!

    — Peter Williams, Soul Point Holistics —

Heidi managed to express what my business is about in a clear visual way and made my website very easy for other people access. I have received many compliments and my business has greatly benefited from her work. Heidi is not only extremely thorough and puts her heart and soul into her projects, she also really cares about her clients and their business and wants to make sure you have a website that you are happy with and that works for you. Heidi has a great eye for details, understands business and is a marketing strategy genius. All these qualities are hard to find in just one person. I feel very lucky to have come across her talents.

Faster Website Speed Just Got Real Welcome to our CDN


The number one reason for joining our CDN is to improve website user experience in terms of speed, and as we know – speed matters! Ensuring a consistent experience for your visitors is crucial, no matter where they are located. 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A CDN POWERED WEBSITE

​Performance, reliability and bandwidth are major factors for online service providers that directly impact profitability and customer satisfaction.


Speed Increase

Our Global Content Distribution (CDN) Network speeds up websites. Sites that join our CDN notice speed increases of up to 70% compared to prior.

Improved User Experience

Websites in the CDN, notice a decline in bounce rate (users hitting the back key) Furthermore, we we see increases in page-views and numbers of pages viewed per user, confirming that a fast site is directly linked to improved user experience.

Crash Resistance

The CDN allows website owners to distribute the load to multiple global servers instead of having 100% traffic to a primary server, thus making it less likely to crash.

Improvement in SEO

Google has clearly stated that faster sites tend to rank higher in Search Engines.

The Cheddar Media CDN leverages premium global data centres with best-in-class hardware for increased speed and reliability. This means that Cheddar Media clients are now able to load their website pages much faster than the industry norm.

CDN EXPLAINED


CDN is short for Content Delivery Network which is a network of servers that deliver cached static content from websites to users based on the geographic location of the user. It is essentially a network of geographically dispersed servers. Each CDN node (also called Edge Servers) caches the static content of a site like the images, CSS/JS files and other structural components.

The majority of an end-user’s page load time is spent on retrieving this content, and so it makes sense to provide these “building blocks” of a site in as many server nodes as possible, distributed throughout the world.

When a user requests your site, the node closest in proximity to user will deliver the static content, ensuring the shortest distance for the data to travel (reduced latency), therefore providing the fastest site experience.

Your web host’s server is located at a central location – let’s say Houston, TX, for the purpose of this example. This means that every user on your website is accessing this one server to view your website.

When you use a CDN, your static content is cached and stored on all of these servers. Static content includes images, stylesheets (css files), Javascripts, Flash, etc. So, now when a user visits your site, the CDN technology redirects them to the closest server to their location (for example in Hong Kong, if the user is in China). If a user in England tries to access your site, then they will be redirected to the closest server, in London.

YES! No matter which country your users are trying to access your website from, they will be redirected to the closest server to their current location. This limits the number of internet hops needed to transmit the static files to your end user.

A user’s proximity to your website’s server has an impact on load time. By deploying your content across multiple geographically dispersed servers, you can make your pages load faster from the user’s perspective. This is when CDN comes in handy. In simple words, the closer the CDN server is to where your user is, the faster the user gets the content.

Please see our GLOBAL CDN SERVER LOCATIONS list of server locations below. China is serviced via the Hong Kong, SAR server location.

CDNs not only ensure a faster experience to your users, but they also help to prevent site crashes in the event of traffic surges – CDNs help to distribute bandwidth across multiple servers, instead of allowing one server to handle all traffic. It’s not unusual to see a website that experiences periods of high volume of traffic to become overloaded, which can lead to a slower loading website or even server crash.

It’s not unusual to see a website that experiences periods of high volume of traffic to become overloaded, which can lead to a slower loading website or even server crash. This is where a CDN can also come in handy because it is a network of servers spread through across the globe.

Yes, a CDN works on top of your web hosting account to help speed up things. A CDN does not replace a web hosting account, it’s used in parallel.

Simply sign up to a package and we’ll take care of the implementation for you.
