SPACECDN Description

SpaceCDN is the dedicated CDN selling branch of INXY - a Cyprus-based reseller of dedicated servers, storage and CDNs. The company was founded in 2006 and just similar to SpaceCDN, more companies fly under the banner of INXY, such as INXYHOST and SpaceCDN.ru. The CDN offering of SpaceCDN.com and SpaceCDN.ru differs, as the international site offers Leaseweb and the Russian site offers CDNNOW instead.

In total, the CDN partners of INXY and SpaceCDN are EdgeCast, UCDN, Highwinds, Leaseweb and CDNNOW.

Clients can use the CDN price calculator to get an estimate of the possible discount to their CDN costs when buying from SpaceCDN. Both per traffic pricing and per bandwidth pricing is possible.

While SpaceCDN nor INXY (re)sell DNS services or CDN balancing technology, they do sell multiple CDNs. For clients interested in multiple CDNs within a multi-CDN setup, brokers can be a suitable solution to limit the amount of contract partners. Depending on the feature needs of a client prices with SpaceCDN differ per CDN provider in their portfolio.

We do not have information about customers of SpaceCDN.
