Get Free CDN

Rapid.Space provides HTTPS front-ends (HTTP1, HTTP2, HTTP3) in 10 different locations worldwide. In China, Rapid.Space front-ends are places on all major carriers: China Telecom, China Unicom and China Mobile.

CDN provides a front-end solution to deliver data to end-users or to collect data from IoT. It is similar to Cloudflare or qiniu CDN in China.

  • HTTP2/HTTP3 with SSL/TLS
  • Content caching (Cache-Control, stale-while-revalidate , etc.)
  • Content buffering (fluentd, MQTT, SNMP, kafka, etc.)

The CDN service accelerates content delivery to end-users by reducing the time for end-users to negotiate SSL/TLS sessions and by keeping a copy of content close to end-users.

It can also be used to circumvent network congestion for global deployment of business applications of Web sites.

The CDN service also provides a way to buffer IoT data and forward it to the data processing backend. It reduces the risk of losing IoT data due to network congestion or backend downtime.

Click "Get Free CDN!", you will get to use frontend outside China. This frontend can be used for a service running on a host located inside or outside China. The only thing that matters is you will have your website to be easily accessible from outside China. 

This action will lead to the configuration page of the frontend. Please read How To Request A Rapid.Space CDN (Presentation) for followed instructions. 

Get Free Chinese CDN

Click "Get Free CDN!", you will get to use frontend inside China. This frontend can be used for a service running on a host located inside or outside China. The only thing that matters is you will have your website to be easily accessible from inside China. 

This action will lead to the configuration page of the frontend. Please read How To Request A Rapid.Space CDN (Presentation) for followed instructions.
