Showit Shrinks the World

Okay, so technically the Earth is still 24,901.55 miles around but it is totally going to feel smaller thanks to Showit Rapid Edge Hosting.

With Showit Rapid Edge Hosting all of your site content is served from edge locations all over the world. This has the advantage that your initial site load is quicker because the Flash player, site info, and fonts are all loaded from these edge locations along with all your site content.

All this being said people sometimes say "Showit is slow" but that is like saying "Photoshop makes bad pictures" because Showit simple gives people the freedom to create a slow website or a fast website and sometimes they make slow ones so don't forget that you always want to optimize what's on your pages for the fastest loading times.

Presently content is being distributed to these edge locations.

    • Ashburn, VA
    • Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
    • Los Angeles, CA
    • Miami, FL
    • Newark, NJ
