What is Pay As You Go CDN?
Pay As You Go Content Delivery Network
CDNsun is a Pay As You Go (PAYG) Content Delivery Network (CDN) provider. What does it mean? A Pay As You Go CDN provider is a CDN provider for which credit (also referred as CDN funds) is purchased in advance of CDN services use. The purchased credit is used to pay for CDN usage at the moment the CDN services are accessed. If there is no available credit then the CDN services are suspended by the CDN provider. Note that the term Pay As You Go (PAYG) originally comes from prepaid mobile phone services.
How do you calculate my costs?
We calculate your costs according to the traffic delivered through subscribed CDN Locations (also referred as PoPs or Edge Servers).
Let's say that you deliver 10 TB of traffic through our CDN and that
- 5 TB are delivered through New York PoP
- 4 TB are delivered through London PoP
- 1 TB is delivered through Syndey PoP
And let's assume the following prices (please refer to Transparent Pricing for actual prices)
- New York for $37 / TB
- London for $37 / TB
- Sydney for $108 / TB
In this case your total price for 10 TB is
5 x $37 + 4 x $37 + 1 x $108 = $441
Note that with CDNsun you have a full control over subscribed CDN Locations and thus you can adjust your price to perfectly fit your individual needs.
How much do I pay monthly?
There is no monthly fee for using our content delivery network services.
What is a minimal payment?
A minimal payment is set to $45. In other words, a minimum of $45 is required to top up your credit.
Will my credit expire?
Your credit will be valid for one year. In other words, if you will not spend all your credit within one year then the remaining credit will expire.
How do you suspend CDN services?
There are automated emails notifying you about your credit balance. When your balance reaches negative values then our support team will contact you via email and if necessary also via phone and will ask you for a prompt payment. If you don't top up your credit and your balance is strongly negative then we will suspend your CDN services. Suspended CDN services are unsuspended automatically at the moment when you top up your credit.
