Setting Up Reverse Proxy on AKAMAI

important: you haven’t already, please read How to Setup Reverse Proxy for your PathFactory Instance before reading this article.

A reverse proxy, whether it’s a server, application, or cloud service, acts as a middleman, managing and optimizing the flow of information between visitors and the website domains they want to access. When using reverse proxy with PathFactory, visitors experience a seamless navigation flow and see PathFactory destination experiences as subfolder/subdirectory URLs within your primary domain folder structure vs. as a subdomain – i.e., companydomain.com/resourcehub vs. resourcehub.companydomain.com. Additionally, reverse proxy enhances security and helps distribute incoming requests across multiple servers to balance the load on busy websites.
