SingleHop to Launch IP Cast, First Real Pay-As-You-Go CDN

CHICAGO, Aug 11, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — SingleHop, a Chicago managed hosting provider, today announced that it plans to launch IP Cast, a new Content Delivery Network (CDN) offering on Labor Day. SingleHop is accepting RSVP reservations for 300 free accounts it intends to give away on the launch date for anyone who advance RSVP’s for IP Cast CDN service. 200 of the accounts are for anyone who purchases a server from SingleHop before launch date, and the remaining 100 will be reserved for clients who RSVP. The RSVP’s will be processed first-come, first-served based on orders. Initially the offer will be available only to SingleHop customers, who have one or more servers with SingleHop that are priced $150 per month or more.

“I’d like to make it clear that this means for the first 3 full years of CDN service SingleHop customers who RSVP’d early will receive 250 GB of free monthly CDN bandwidth and a low overage rate of $0.20 pr GB, which is billed on actual usage,” says Zak Boca, founder and president of SingleHop, Inc.

The new CDN offering represents a further expansion of SingleHop’s growing portfolio of services and will include over 23 server nodes throughout the world. A CDN optimizes the delivery of web content so that it is received more quickly by end users, thereby enhancing the online experience. Efficient content delivery is seen as critical to the success of any online endeavor.
