Frequently Asked CDN Questions

What is a CDN?

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) stores & serves images & other assets from a collection of servers distributed around the world to speed up content delivery to local users.

What content can be stored on a CDN?

Static files like images, videos, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS can be stored on a CDN.

Who should use a CDN?

In today’s day & age where speed affects everything we recommend everyone use a CDN.

How Do I Configure the CDN?

We automatically configure the CDN on all new Managed WordPress & Managed WooCommerce hosting accounts.

Do you use SSD drives?

Yes. The large object cache is stored on Solid State Disks to balance throughput and latency from edge servers. This includes compressed archives, documents, movies and executables.

Where is the small object cache stored?

The small object cache is stored in memory. This includes HTML, Images, JavaScript, and CSS files.

What are the auto-expire durations for content?

You can set custom expire values for small and large object caches, with defaults designed to optimize traffic between origin and edge servers.

Do you handle byte-range requests?

Yes. Byte-range requests allow you to deliver a specific portion of a larger file. This is commonly used when resuming large downloads or delivering a web-based media player.

What is the IP default?

We built our edge network with IPv6 enabled by default at no extra cost. All edge domain names come preconfigured with IPv6 Quad-A records.

What HTTP version is used?

We use HTTP/2 to help stream multiple objects through a single connection and so you can provide preload hints with the rel=preload link tag.

What TLS version is used?

We use TLS 1.3. We also support TLS 1.2 with intermediate cipher suite for broad device compatibility.

Do you segregate HTTP and HTTPS cache?

Yes! We never mix storage of non-secure and secure content that your website sends us.

Does the Nexcess Edge CDN compress files?

Yes, we compress files with next-generation Brotli compression. We also support Gzip compression if a users browser doesn’t support Brotli.

What is Advanced Network Congestion Control?

TCP BBR is designed to deliver low latency and high throughput, even when talking to users that may have latent or disrupted paths to our Edge network.

Do you support Cross-Origin Resource Sharing?

Yes, our Edge network passes an Access-Control-Allow-Origin header for common CORS objects such as CSS and Javascript.

Do stale objects remain in the cache before updates complete?

Content updates take place in the background. During this time, your visitors are served the expired (stale) object until the network has finished updating.
