<p><strong>Chicago &mdash; Aug. 22 </strong><br />Hostway Corp., a global Web hosting company, has released Edge Caching, a content delivery network (CDN) that makes image and media-heavy Web pages load in seconds.<br /><br />Many studies have shown that people simply click away from a Web site that takes more than a few seconds to load. </p><p>Edge Caching improves the user experience by speeding content to the visitor&#39;s browser. </p><p>It is especially good for online stores with hundreds of product images, multimedia-heavy Web sites and social media sites with many user-generated profiles.  <br /><br />The Edge Caching content delivery network is a group of servers strategically deployed in data centers across four continents (North America, Europe, Asia and Australia). </p><p>The servers work together to determine the fastest path to speed the data to the user&rsquo;s screen.<br /><br />For example, without Edge Caching, a Web page displaying multiple product images might take three to 30 seconds to load, depending on the distance between the user and the server, even if it&#39;s sent over a high-speed Internet connection.  </p><p>The same page using Edge Caching will load in less than half a second, regardless of the distance from server to user. That time differential might be all it takes to lose a prospective customer to the dreaded back button.<br /><br />&ldquo;User expectations for immediate access to greater content on the Web continue to increase,&rdquo; said John Enright, Hostway vice president of sales and marketing. &ldquo;Hostway&rsquo;s Edge Caching is our answer to the market demand for the technology to meet these expectations.&rdquo;</p>
