Alan is looking for a global CDN provider that also has a good reach into China. From the extensive research that he's already conducted hes finding that, due to the Great Firewall of China, his site visitors from that region cannot access many of the major CDN networks. He's also looked at it from the opposite perspective, researching Chinese CDN providers, but those have issues in countries and regions outside China. So what's the solution? CDN nodes in Hong Kong, Japan and maybe Singapore might help somewhat, but does anyone know of a particular CDN with a network that physically extends into China? Share your thoughts in the thread.
We sometimes see threads started with a post like "Which host is best?" or "Suggest me the fastest server", so it's refreshing to see someone like Robert coming along, having done extensive research of his own, asking for feedback on what he's already found out for himself so far, digging even deeper, and then coming back with even more detailed notes on his findings. His thread is a fantastic example of how to research and decide on a provider, regardless of whether it's a web host, VPS or dedicated provider, reseller host, etc., and involving WHT members in his decision making process. So whether you can help Robert with his search, or just want to see how he's progressing, this thread makes a really good read. Join in!

Kaseya told all of its nearly 40,000 customers to disconnect their Kaseya software immediately. For example, Coop Sweden was forced to close hunderds of its stores as the attack shut down all their tills. Read more...
