CDN List - Affordable and Effective CDN Websites

RE: CDN List - Affordable and Effective CDN Websites
Hey there,

I use MaxMind IP location software on my server to pinpoint the user's location.

http://www.maxmind.com/app/ip-location

Their free version is not precise as the paid version but it is still pretty good regardless.

It is pretty neat delivering content to a user based on location.

My server is based in california and I am sure they have an edge location somewhere around there so I doubt I would personally see a great performance benefit.

However, I suppose that would be a way to save bandwidth. If the user is within a certain distance from the server, I could use the original server to serve the content instead of the CDN.

It would be neat figure out the where the distance between the user and original server equals the distance between the user and closest edge server in regards to performance.

If I ever try to figure this out (which I might because I am a major math geek), I might program a function in coldfusion and make a tutorial people can use.

Sincerely,
Travis Walters
