Fast.io is a CDN provider that acts as a distributor of data stored on Google Drive, GitHub, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, or MediaFire.
On or around 2020-10-13, Fast.io announced that free accounts would be discontinued on 2020-12-31 in an email sent to its users.
On or around 2020-11-20, Fast.io announced that their entire service would shut down on 2021-01-15. The following notice was posted to their login page:
This is a difficult announcement to make. Beginning today we're winding down the Fast.io service and we will fully retire it on January 15th, 2021. We're proud that we've been able to help many of you host your content, but we need to focus our resources elsewhere. Fast.io was a promising tool for simplifying the CDN deployment process. It has developed a loyal audience and showed real signs of value throughout its life. However, we have not been able to reach a level of growth or revenue that would lead to a viable business. Instead, we will be investing in a new direction. After January 15th, 2021, Fast.io services will cease to operate. Your content will remain in your cloud storage however your sites will no longer be publicly accessible. After this date, you will also no longer be able to access your Fast.io account. Please ensure that you have retrieved any invoices or other data from your account before then. We understand that this won't be an easy transition and we're working hard to make this process as easy as possible. We are committed to maintaining our services during this period and our team will focus on support to resolve any issues and assist with your migration to other platforms. Please contact us through intercom or email (email@example.com) if you need assistance. We are grateful you chose Fast.io as your hosting partner and thank you for taking this ride with us.
Only small bits and pieces were able to be grabbed by ArchiveBot before the service fully shut down on January 16th.
