Now Shipping SecureCDN
We have officially launched our SecureCDN solution that lets developers accelerate content delivery and protect web applications from a single platform. Plans start at $20/month and all plans have full access to:
- Content delivery network with 24 global PoPs
- Web application firewall with unlimited rules and easy-to-use security policies
- DDoS mitigation system that absorbs attacks on layers 3 through 7
In addition to this and other features, users on all plans get 24/7 access to our support engineers by live chat, phone, or ticketing system. You can also set up a free integration call after signing up for an account.
Plans and Pricing
Plans are based on bandwidth usage, but you always have the option to use more for a low price per gigabyte (ppg). Our smallest plan is $20/month and gives you 200GB; our largest plan is $600/month and gives you 25TB. If you ever need more bandwidth than your monthly plan provides, you can use additional bandwidth at a low ppg.
You’ll notice that, to keep pricing simple, instead of charging different prices for additional bandwidth in different regions, we’re charging one flat global rate. For our smallest plan this is $0.06/GB; for our larger plan this is $0.02/GB.
More information can be found on our pricing page.
Getting Started (width SecureCDN)
To deliver content from the edge and position a WAF and DDoS mitigation system in front of your web application, only a few steps are required:
- Choose a plan and sign up for a 15-day free trial.
- Set up a site. A StackPath “site” is needed to put our platform in front of your application. You can set up a site for static content delivery or full-site content delivery.
- Rewrite URLs for static assets. As your files will be served through a StackPath domain (or CNAME such as cdn.domain.com), you have to update your static asset links to utilize a new domain instead of your regular domain. If you’re using a CMS this is very easy to do by following one of these tutorials.
- Optimize your setup. After enabling WAF on the WAF > Settings page in your control panel, DDoS mitigation is enabled by default, as well as WAF policies that block known threats. As for content delivery, recommended configurations are covered in this tutorial.
