First Challenge in Mirror Hosting

The first challenge is website performance and speed.

Traffic congestion at the Great Firewall often results in packet loss, increased latency, or site blockage. If your data makes it through the Firewall intact, the next issue is the inherent design of the Chinese internet. The four primary Chinese internet providers only cross-connect at 15 nodes in a country that is the size of Canada causing additional delays. Together, these conditions slow website performance and result in poor user experience.

Mirror Hosting is Recommended for:

International companies with a centralized web
hosting architecture seeking to improve SEO,
accelerate website performance and Internet
reliability in mainland China.

International companies with a centralized server commonly
translate their websites into multiple languages and adopt
regional URLs when entering a new country or regional market.
In the majority of countries, these simple modications result in
regional websites which have much the same functionality and
speed as the origin site.

However, these modications are not sufficient in mainland
China where website functionality is dependent on some
unique conditions all of which can be resolved by CDS Mirror
Hosting. CDS Mirror Hosting accelerates website performance
and greatly improves the user experience by providing fast,
reliable Internet connectivity.
