ChinaNetCenter is one of the leading Chinese Internet service platform providers that offers both coverage of mainland China and in the rest of the world. ChinaNetCenter was founded in 2000 and was listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 2009. Its US subsidiary MileWEB was set up in 2012 and tasked with globalising ChinaNetCenter’s CDN services. Global sales operations followed in 2014 and MileWEB was renamed to Quantil.
The company has over 500 ‘CDN nodes’ in mainland China, covering all the major cities. Another 60 of these CDN nodes, what we assume are PoPs, are located in Europe and the United States. Next to CDN services, ChinaNetCenter offers server hosting and rental.
Features or products offered by ChinaNetCenter include the usual, such as download delivery, site acceleration, mobile acceleration and media streaming.
Note that international businesses require an Internet Content Provider (ICP) license to operate their site from China. Most Chinese CDN providers such as ChinaNetCenter and Quantil offer support to clients applying for the ICP license. Mind that without a license, Chinese ISPs are required to restrict access to the website.
BelugaCDN is a small CDN provider based in Miami, Florida in the US. The provider has 9 Super PoPs spread over the US and Europe. The provider focuses on the simplicty and ease-of-use of its CDN environment, and the main target audience is composed of developers. The CDN however, is still very suitable for all client types.
Seemingly, BelugaCDN resells its network to other service providers, one of these resellers is hosting provider Isprime. Customers of the Beluga CDN service offering include Homelife Media, LittleThings, Userpath.co, VidaPrimo, MacUpdate and Encoding Booth.
