September 1, 2019 — About a year ago, we finished a projected called BinCDN, a very easy-to-use CDN storage platform. BinCDN was designed to cache your files for up to a year and delivering them at lightning speeds. BinCDN was meant to be one of the most affordable CDN solutions on the Internet, keeping prices as low as $1.99 for 100 GB, $4.99 for 500 GB, and 1 TB for $9.99, with higher plans available upon request.
BinCDN also provides you with the ability to see what files were served from cache and which files were served directly, as well as geolocation data which gives you insight into who is visiting and where they were from. You can also share a special link that determines how many times it was clicked. Files types allowed are: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, webp, pdf, zip, txt, css, html, js, tif, tiff, wav, mp3, mp4, mov, doc, ppt, xls, m4v.
Recently, we received a request from a company that wanted to start an astrophotography image repository using BinCDN and asked if we had an API. Although we had not originally planned to implement an API, we felt it could be a very valuable tool for anyone to use. As a result, we spent some time developing an API for BinCDN. As long as you have a selected plan, you can upload via URL. You can learn more about this API here: https://bincdn.com/useapi
The API Endpint will return a code that looks like this:
We may add more features in the future to our API, but for now, it works! Feel free to make any suggestions! We're always happy to accomodate companies in need of custom work, especially if they suggest a feature to add to our own products!
