How our CDN Works – YourHost’s global EdgeCast-Verizon driven CDN private network has been created and built to effectively distribute large files, stream live events, and enable on-demand access to video and other media. The Edgecast-Verizon architecture used by YourHost’s network is designed for reliability and scalability. Additionally, the architecture boasts competitive bandwidth capacity and speeds. YourHost.com does not charge for Ingest, which can add up and become very costly over time. YourHost.com distributes media to all mobile devices via Wowza technology.
The network consists of multiple 10gbps connections per point of presence (POP) around the glob. YourHost has a unique peering strategy with a massive roster of peered EdgeCast-Verizon driven networks worldwide, further differentiating the network as one of the most powerful and affordable around.
YourHost’s Points of Presence Mean Faster Speeds for Your Users
Viewing the entire network, the server guarantees the best user experience by making routing decisions in real time using IP Anycast, delivering content through the fastest, most efficient and cost-effective route. The server finds the best transfer location for every end user route, taking geographic location, network traffic and Quality of Service (QoS) controls into consideration. YourHost.com implements Wowza servers for solid HTML5 streaming. Flash is not dead yet and still lingers around so you need both Flash and HTML5 streaming options.

Quality of Service (QoS)
Quality of Service control mechanisms are employed in YourHost’s network to simultaneously carry multiple types of traffic. QoS allows the network to be utilized efficiently and eliminates the need to simply throw bandwidth at content without regard for actual traffic requirements.
IP and Content Caching
Hosting is one aspect of YourHost’s services but speeding up how images, files, and content are delivered are another specialty provided. If you have lots of traffic and want a faster and more responsive website, YourHost can take your site and it’s content to the next level.
