This is the type of account opened for accounts with a large file size. There are two options for serving the files. In the first option, namely “Storage (Origin Push)”, data is pushed to Medianova Storage via FTP, SFTP or STOOK service and then served to end-users. In the other option, “Origin Pull”, files are copied via HTTP from the origin servers and served to the end-users. After that, the contents are distributed to web servers and served. Data is served to end-users through a URL in the form of your-account-p.mncdn.com.

Large Account is suitable for files like video, music, zip, exe files.

Note: When requests are made for the file extensions which apply for small files but not apply for Large Account, a 403 error response is returned by the service.

Such files extensions are: gif | jpg | jpeg | png | bmp | swf | psd | tif | tiff | txt | html | jsp | js | css | ico | aspx | php  | woff | ttf | eot | otf | htm | xml | pdf | psb | ashx | swz | cur | svg | jpr
