Efficiently and cost-effectively delivering content to users across the globe
CDNetworks is a trusted content delivery network provider offering CDN solutions, including hosting services for China, to ensure the fast and reliable delivery of web services in mainland China. CDNetworks has expert knowledge and experience of Chinese internet regulations, its CDN is fully licensed by the Chinese government, and it is in compliance with legislation, including the Cybersecurity Law. CDNetworks will ensure that content is accessible to everyone in China, with speedy load times, and can advise on necessary registrations and licences.
The Golden Shield and Great Firewall of China limit what people in mainland China can search for, what websites can be accessed online, and is largely underestimated by Western brands targeting the Chinese market. Content providers need to be careful - once blocked, it’s very difficult to ever be unblocked. The Firewall can also mean non-Chinese websites load slower compared to those delivered in-country due to the filtering process.
In addition to this, hosting in China may be mandatory depending on the web services you operate and the nature of your business. China’s new Cybersecurity Law is designed to protect the personal information of Chinese citizens, and hence may require a review of how you manage this type of data. We advise to seek legal counsel and, if necessary, speak with the Chinese government to determine if this is necessary.
But even when content is hosted or delivered in-country, fragmentation between ISPs can limits access and increase latency. This makes a local, trusted Content Delivery Network (CDN) partner essential to ensure content will be accessible and load quickly throughout the country.
The demand to host in China can be an opportunity to consolidate CDN and hosting providers, and work with a partner that can provide advice on the correct licences (like ICP licenses), and how to be compliant with Chinese regulations and cultural expectations.
