NetDNA Slashes Prices!

November 11th, 2011

LOS ANGELES, Oct 31, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- NetDNA today announced online customer service features and new pricing for its content delivery services to make them easier to use, more transparent and the low-price alternative to comparable solutions such as Amazon CloudFront. The growing importance of web performance optimization -- which impacts everything from search engine rankings to online sales -- has opened the content delivery network (CDN) market to customers who are turned off by the negotiated pricing schemes, service implementation delays and extra customer service charges that are pervasive in the industry. One example is BuySellAds.com, an online ad buying and selling service that switched from Amazon CloudFront to NetDNA because its superior services enabled more complete file control. Complete caching control over files is critical to BuySellAds.com's business in order to deliver fast service to its customers. The changes impact NetDNA's pay-as-you-go MaxCDN(TM) service for small and medium businesses customers and it's enterprise-class NetDNA(TM) service. NetDNA services for U.S. and European distribution are priced at six cents per gigabyte for the first 10 terabytes to as low as one cent per gigabyte for users who exceed 5 petabytes. For Asian distribution the price range is ten cents per gigabyte ranging to 3.2 cents per gigabyte for the same traffic volumes. Included in that pricing is custom secure sockets layer (SSL), 24/7 support via phone, email or chat, no overage penalties, service level agreements and customized service development via an XML application-programming interface (API) or through the NetDNA service team. MaxCDN pricing includes an introductory price of $39.95 for the first terabyte of service. After that, prices range from seven cents per gigabyte for the first 10 terabytes all the way to two cents per gigabyte for services more than five petabytes. All of these services are global and feature unlimited zones and shared SSL. The company has enhanced its online control panel for both services to provide access to real-time provision services and to cache purge capabilities. With this tool, customers can implement new zones or provision new accounts in real time. The tool also provides real time reporting and analytics on data transfers. Additionally, the company is providing plug ins for instant integration with leading content management and blogging systems including Drupal, WordPress, Joomla, SocialEngine, X-Cart and others. Also, Amazon EC2 and S3 services integrate well with NetDNA. "The need for CDN services is critical to every website owner who needs to improve user experience, monetize their website or boost SEO," said David Henzel, vice president of marketing at NetDNA. "We've seen this shift happen before in the web hosting market, and with our enhanced services NetDNA is leading the way for this shift to happen within the CDN market." "While initially our decision to switch from Amazon CloudFront to NetDNA was because NetDNA offered better and fairer pricing and more control over our files, over time we have discovered that working with NetDNA means much more than simply cost and control," said Todd Garland, founder of BuySellAds. "A relationship with NetDNA is about having a true partner who is responsive and able to support our changing needs as our business grows and develops."
