Clicky building a CDN that supports SSL with your domain name
Image via CrunchBaseI’m a fan of the analytics provider Clicky (aff link). Why? One reason stands out above all others – Clicky gives you real time stats. The spy mode lets you watch the traffic come in and if you’re blogging for real-time search reasons (which I do elsewhere) then this is vital.
Speed is also vital. Analytics tags slow sites down; just a little but it does happen. In order to speed Clicky up; they’re building a content delivery network.
Clicky have decided to build their own CDN for two important reasons;
- They can’t find a CDN that supports SSL with your own domain name.
Right now, all Clicky are asking for are recommendations on lease servers. You can pop over to their blog to leave a recommendation.
Not only is this a project worth watching; it’s a project worth supporting.
