China’s internet has evolved independent from the rest of the world with limited bandwidth and connectivity. Today, over 95% of all foreign websites have debilitating performance in China, with –
Average load times in excess of 30 seconds
Unstable and incomplete pages
Missing or broken components like maps, images or styling
Fewer than 10% of pages indexed properly on Chinese Search Engines
“The China growth story is possibly the most important one of our time. Global businesses that fail to take advantage of this opportunity will become irrelevant in the years to come” says Founder, and CEO Kevin Lepsoe.
Technology Applicable to Any Site
Chinafy provides a solution for companies looking to reach potential customers providing accelerated, and legitimate ways through the Great Firewall without circumventing any of the rules or restrictions. Chinafy bolts onto any site, making it 5-8x faster, and up to 100% deliverable in China.
The technology has no impact on the global site and takes only a few minutes to implement. Salient features include –
Performance Optimization: Automated file-optimisation specific to the end-users’ device and browser, and multi-CDN infrastructure.

Location-Based Filtering: Location-aware delivery of different site versions under the same URL. China-optimized version for visitors in China, and then the direction of global visitors to the original site – with no-noticeable difference to visitors.
