Alexa and Fortune 500 CDN Marketshare – 11 Mar 2015

This post provides marketshare analysis for CDN services and top Alexa and US Fortune 500 websites. We compile this marketshare using a variety of techniques including CNAME chain analysis, ASN and IP/CIDR matching, multi-level site crawling, and related domain associations. We attempt to filter out known white labeled SaaS sites using a filter list. The network identifiers we use for marketshare correlations (CNAME regex, ASN, and IP/CIDR) are available via our Get Network Identifiers API method.

This table provides marketshare for CDN services amongst top 1,000 Alexa websites. Change metrics are derived from the difference in marketshare from Feb to Mar 2015.
