    Best CDN Software?

    Hey all,

    I'm looking to setup my own CDN for some sites(No streaming stuff), But I simply do not have any idea about its software. I Have the servers, I need some software i can implement on all of them or just a simple advice how can i setup that in cPanel. I need my own software on my own servers, I do not want to buy some CDN so please do not recommend any providers.

    Please recommend some software or a guide.

    Thanks!

    249$/month for some sites isnt affordable for me. Im looking for a setup for my own few sites, Which i can pay for one-time or a low price around 100$ per month.

    I know of a guide but not of released software. Checkout this few month old thread but all it does is confirm the fact that CDN software doesn't exist yet: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1022178

    You can use CloudFlare... it works like a CDN and it's free.

    CloudFlare is a CDN hosted on their servers, I need it hosted on mine.

    I use zerigo for all my dns, though I use normal dns and not geodns.
    For cdn I use amazon cloudfront.

    Just to clarify...

    1. You don't need to change your hosting IP address using CloudFlare (the CDN is provided through DNS).
    2. If you're a host looking at CloudFlare, you should contact us to look at integrating CloudFlare.
    3. If you don't want to change DNS to use CloudFlare, we will be offering CNAME pointing in the very near future.

    I did a lot of research on this stuff back in 2010 to do a very low budget CDN for myself. It was working and was good (using cheap VPS as master & edge systems were cheap unlimited web hosting plans).

    The cheapest GeoDNS service I found was: edgedirector.com
    They work great and you have a lot of power for a cheap pricing. You then just have the specific geolocations point to your specific server/ip.

    The second option I found is using the following link to setup your own master & web servers using geodns/location:

    I hope this helps out a bit. I know the above link for setting it all up yourself is not the best & has some errors in what you need to do but it is enough to figure it out yourself (be ready to do some google search)

    If all you need is rapid delivery of static content, check out using Apache TrafficServer as a caching reverse proxy, then use GeoDNS to point clients to the 'right node' if you want to have more than one server location. Simple, easy, and fast. Apache traffic server is a little arcane in places, but still cool.
