CDN Pro Pricing & Coverage
The next evolution of content delivery networks
CDN Pro Price Model
We organized our global Points of Presence (PoPs) into 4 server groups based on cost. From lowest to highest, the groups are:
$0.057 per GB*
$0.112 per GB*
$0.197 per GB*
$0.279 per GB*
*Additional charge of $1.95 per CPU hour usage. We charge our customers a minimum of $50 per month based on your total traffic and CPU per hour usage.
Depending on your needs, you can choose the server groups to use for your visitors according to country and ISP. This lets you maximize performance and minimize costs.
Assume your main objective is to ensure the performance of your website in China and Korea. In this scenario, you may want to configure the edge hostname to use all four server groups to serve these two countries, while using the “standard” group to serve the rest of the world. The screenshot below shows the completed configuration on the portal.
At the end of the billing cycle, the invoice shows the amount of traffic served by each server group and the CPU usage with the associated charges. We charge a minimum of $50 per month based on traffic and CPU usage.

With over 250 PoPs and terabit-level bandwidth capacity, CDN Pro peers with ISP providers worldwide, from all major networks, to deliver your content with low latency and optimal performance. CDN Pro covers the most significant areas on the planet and continues to expand the reach of its global network.
CDN Pro is dedicated to providing you with the finest self-service experience, including the ability to balance cost with performance. CDNetworks’ global points of presence (PoPs) are organized into four “server groups” based on cost.
We define different prices for traffic served from the four groups. You can choose which server groups to use for each country and ISP, letting you fully customize performance and cost for different regions in the world.
Frequently Asked Questions
We organized our global Points of Presence (PoPs) into 4 server groups based on cost. From lowest to highest, the groups are: Standard, Premium, Deluxe, Ultra. Depending on your needs, you can choose the server groups to use for your visitors according to country and ISP. This lets you maximize performance and minimize costs.
For consistency, server hardware is largely the same across server groups. The main difference between different server groups is the bandwidth cost charged by our vendors (ISPs). A PoP in the “ultra” group is more expensive than one in the “standard” group, but does not necessarily deliver better performance than a “standard” PoP. Performance experienced by each end user is determined by the connectivity between the user and the PoP. Adding the “ultra” group to serve a region just provides our GSLB algorithm more PoPs to choose from, such that the end users in that region are more likely to get a PoP with better connectivity.
If I choose to use the Ultra server group for a region, will all traffic in that region be charged the Ultra price?
No. The CDN Pro GSLB assigns PoPs primarily based on performance. Adding “ultra” to serve a region enables the GSLB to choose from a larger pool of PoPs for that region. If the algorithm determines that a request will be better served by a “standard” PoP, the traffic is still served from that PoP and incurs a “standard” charge.
In general, the “Standard” group delivers excellent coverage for North America , Europe, and some regions in Asia. Adding the “Premium” group can enhance the performance in those areas as well as the Middle East. Adding “Deluxe” delivers good performance in APAC countries. Adding “Ultra” gives you our best possible performance in all areas including South America, Oceania and Africa. We invite you to try different configurations to determine the right balance between performance and cost.
CDN Pro does not charge for TLS certificates and HTTPS accesses. You can BYO certificate for your property domain configuration. CDN Pro also supports self-signed certificates and Let’s Encrypt generated certificates.
CDN Pro collects CPU usage based on NGINX’s “event-driven, non-blocking” architecture. Every request to CDN Pro is put to sleep when waiting for I/O activities, awakened when some data is ready to be processed, and then put to sleep again when the processing is completed. This can occur many times during the lifecycle of a request. CDN Pro uses the function clock_gettime() on Linux to obtain the amount of CPU time, in nanoseconds, spent on each active interval of each request and accumulated along the way. At the end of the request’s lifecycle, we collect the total consumed CPU time for the request, just like how we treat the bytes transferred.
