As an appreciated customer, you can use AdGlare's CDN free of charge. There are no extra costs, not even for large assets like MP4 video files.
A few things you may want to know:
- Creatives have file size limits. You can find them on the Pricing page.
- The ad tag will create signed URLs pointing to the CDN, containing a one-time token that is user-specific.
- Hotlinking to URLs on the CDN is not recommended (read: forbidden).
Around the world, as fast as we can!
With a global network of nodes in the CDN, creative assets are loaded from a server the closest to the geographical location of the user. The main goal is to reduce network latency: the data has to travel over a shorter distance through the optic fiber.
Edge node locations
AdGlare's edge nodes are located in these data centers:
- San Francisco (USA)
- Dallas (USA)
- Washington DC (USA)
- Amsterdam (The Netherlands)
- Frankfurt (Germany)
CDN built in-house. Why?
AdGlare's CDN has been custom-built from the ground up, mainly because third-party vendors don't provide the level of customization needed in the ad tech industry. It also allows us to load balance the edge nodes more effectively, and apply the same failover technology used for the ad serving engines.
Serving ads from my own domain
Instead of loading creatives from AdGlare's domain (adglare.net), you can set up your white label to serve ads from your own domain. Note that they will still be loaded from our servers: it's just that your (sub)domain is used in the URLs pointing to the ads. There are a few reasons why you'd want to do so, and one is them is to get around ad blockers sentiment_satisfied_alt
