Since RSAWEB is now the only ISP in Africa to launch a locally developed, fully owned CDN – we wanted to give you our top 5 reasons why your site needs AfriCDN!
First of all – for those of you who are unsure, a CDN is a ‘Content Delivery Network’
Watch this short video now to find out everything you need to know! (Under 2 Mins)
5 reasons why you need AfriCDN…
1) SPEED - CDN’s help your site load much faster by taking all the heavy, slow loading content off your website and offloading it across our Cloud Network.
2) COST - Using a CDN can shave 50% or more off your sites data costs each month – less content to serve = lower data costs.
3) HAPPINESS - We all know that a fast loading website is good for business, whilst a slow loading website is bad. Did you know that a staggering 40% of users will abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load? (check out this Infographic to see for yourself.) AfriCDN can dramatically speed up your site’s load time which means happier customers and an overall higher conversion rate.
4) SEO – Google’s page rank looks at things like website traffic / load time to decide if your website is relevant to users. More conversions and a lower bounce rate = many more returning visitors = better page rank.
5) UPTIME- CDN’s help your site function better during times of heavy server traffic as your content is shared on servers across our network – this means your site can handle the load far more efficiently, meaning more up-time and more resilient website and user experience.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has opened up the Internet and by introducing future of the Domain Name System – generic top level domains (gTLDs). Aside from the 22 generic TLDs currently in existence, which are the .com, . net, .org, and so forth; and the 250 country codes, “established” companies now have the option to customise their domain needs, for example www.cloudservers.rsaweb.
ICANN identifies “established” companies as:
“Established corporations, organisations, or institutions in good standing may apply for a new gTLD. Applications from individuals or sole proprietorships will not be considered. Applications from or on behalf of yet-to-be formed legal entities, or applications presupposing the future formation of a legal entity (for example, a pending Joint Venture) will not be considered.”
Following recent aggressive peering moves by local ISPs (namely Mweb), peering has once again come to the fore as an issue the ISP industry needs to grapple with.
Firstly, here are the facts concerning RSAWEB customers:
1. We peer openly
We peer openly (settlement free) with all other ISPs, including Mweb. This means that Mweb customers accessing RSAWEB hosted content will not be affected at all by recent events. All traffic between Mweb and RSAWEB is routed locally, and openly.
2. We have our own network and Data Centres
This means we are not reliant on any one single ISP network to route traffic. We are free to route local traffic in a way that ensures the best customer experience.
The end result is a higher quality of service for customers driving traffic between us and Mweb.
