Alibaba Cloud Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN) is extensively used in e-commerce, government and enterprise industries, gaming, finance, and other industries to improve site performance and user experience.

E-commerce

Background: E-commerce platforms include a large number of online systems and links, such as user registration, website logon, product browsing, and payment settlement. Network access speed and content transmission security have become two important indicators for measuring user experience.

Requirements: Most e-commerce websites contain a mixture of dynamic and static content, where large static image files need acceleration to showcase products. At the same time, they also need to support online payments, flash sales, and promotions, all of which slow down the website response time and increase workloads on the origin server.

Typical users: Traveling platforms for air tickets and hotels, online booking platforms for food delivery and taxis, fast-moving consumer goods industry, and vertical e-commerce platforms.

DCDN can fully meet the requirements of websites that contain both dynamic and static content, which ensures a smooth user experience and prevents customer loss.

Social networking

Background: More and more websites are adding dynamic content, such as comment sections or audio and video content. If a lot of users try to open the same page simultaneously, the website may be slowed down or even inaccessible.

Requirement: Users are placing more importance on stable access to websites and quick content updates. For such websites, we recommend that you use the DCDN service for better site performance and user experience.

Typical users: Forums, blogs, and interactive news sites.

Governments and enterprises

Requirement: Whole site acceleration and secure acceleration. Official websites of enterprises or governments represent its image and credibility.

In addition to accelerating content using its rich node resources, DCDN is also able to guard websites against DDoS and HTTP flood attacks.

Gaming

Requirement: Performance and stability for gaming websites, security package downloading, logon services, gaming services, and other services. During peak hours, game players need smoother support when they log on to game servers, and when they trade, update, and play games.

Typical users: Web games and battle games. DCDN can provide them with routing optimization, cache-based acceleration, security protection, and other acceleration services.

Finance

Requirement: High network availability and security. Trading processes primarily involve dynamic, interactive content, which can be exposed to risks if cross-network connections are unstable. Therefore, we recommend that you use DCDN in financial scenarios to safeguard every transaction.

Typical users: Online banking, mobile payments, credit card bonus malls, mobile securities, P2P loans, and other Internet finance applications.
