Conduit moved its content delivery to Cotendo to achieve more reliable performance and a better user experience. Conduit, ranked by Alexa as one of the world’s 100 highest traffic Web sites with millions of unique users per month, delivers Web site syndication solutions for Web publishers that increase site traffic, revenue, and brand loyalty. More than 180,000 publishers have joined the Conduit network worldwide, including Fox News, Travelocity, Lufthansa, Major League Baseball, Greenpeace, TechCrunch, Softonic and small and medium-size organizations in 180 countries around the globe.

Dror Erez, Conduit’s Chief Technical Officer, commented that Cotendo offers an excellent value to customers that need advanced functionality. “We’ve been very impressed with the performance of the Cotendo CDN, particularly given their reasonable price. Given our customer base and their high-value content, performance and reliability as well are absolutely essential.” Erez added that Conduit is utilizing Cotendo’s distributed DNS service, which has contributed to the site’s improved performance.

Seeking Alpha is capitalizing on Cotendo for its outstanding reporting and analytics capabilities and superior customer service – all at a competitive price point. Seeking Alpha is a premier financial website for actionable stock market opinion and analysis. The company handpicks articles from the world’s top market blogs, money managers, financial experts and investment newsletters – publishing approximately 200 articles daily.

The site is the only free, online source for over 1,500 public companies’ quarterly earnings call transcripts, including the S&P 500. Seeking Alpha was named the Most Informative Website by Kiplinger’s Magazine and has received Forbes’ ‘Best of the Web’ Award.

“Content delivery is mission-critical to our business, and Cotendo RT Reports gives us the level of detail and granularity that we need – and which our previous CDN could not match,” said Koby Menachemi, Seeking Alpha’s Chief Technical Officer. “Cotendo’s customer support is also exceptionally responsive. If we need assistance or advice as for the best way to implement or execute a task or ask for a clarification relating to a report, we have easy reliable access to their support representatives at all times. On this count, too, Cotendo outranks our previous CDN provider. Given their superior functionality and support our decision to move to Cotendo was an easy one.”
