This is The Internet Report, where we uncover what’s working and what’s breaking on the Internet—and why. We’ve got an election coming up here in the US, and over the last several weeks, we have been analyzing a dozen or so state election websites to take a closer look at how they’re hosted (e.g., do they use a CDN or are they self-hosted?) and to monitor them for outages. In this episode, we discuss the pros and cons of each hosting method and dive into some examples we’ve seen where election websites have had unexpected performance degradation. Catch this week’s episode to go under the hood on the websites powering the upcoming presidential election—and don’t forget to get out there and vote!
