Supported Technologies

Chinafy optimises websites, and their many resources, for China. Our platform detects, removes and replaces resources to accelerate website speed and ensure compatibility in China. This is an growing list of technologies that affect the speed and compatibility of your site.


Using Pantheon? Reach out to see how we can help you make websites using Pantheon more accessible in China.


Pantheon is an enterprise website operations (WebOps) platform for Drupal and WordPress sites.

Recognized by G2 as a leader in WebOps, Pantheon is best known for its serverless CMS, enterprise hosting solutions, and low-code website management tools.

Over 300,000 websites use Pantheon tools, including Google, Cornell University and Tableau.


As an Enterprise WebOps solution, performance metrics including uptime, scalability, and speed are central to their mission. However, like millions of other enterprise websites built on other platforms, Pantheon-hosted websites similarly face both infrastructural challenges and code-based incompatibility challenges in China.

Code-based incompatibility

Like the majority of foreign websites, Pantheon sites use a number of inaccessible or slow resources(e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Google, Amazon S3 assets etc.). This often renders websites broken, if not unusable.

Even if these resources are removed, it would come at the compromise of functionality for the rest of the websites’ visitors outside of China.

Infrastructural incompatibility

Pantheon’s default Content Delivery Network (CDN) CDN is Fastly. While Fastly is a leading CDN globally, it nonetheless is not optimal for China.

The Drupal and WordPress ecosystems are also best known for the diverse themes and plugins made available to developers. As these 3rd-party resources are managed with varying degrees of compatibility in mind, Drupal and WordPress sites - hosted with Pantheon or otherwise - are prone to performance issues in China.
