Geo Proximity allows server information to be delivered based on the geographic location of your resources and users. With proximity-based routing, you can build your own content delivery network (CDN) by establishing routing policies. Geo Proximity automatically routes queries to the closest server to the end user within your content network.
Common Use Cases for Geo Proximity Rule Edits
Geo Proximity rules can be edited to make changes to previously defined geographical information. This can include the country, region, city, or latitude and longitude of a data server location. Changes can be beneficial for better defining the parameters to deliver content that is relative to the location.
Redefining Geo Proximity rules is also useful for enhancing domain speeds since the resources are housed in closer proximity to the end user.
