Routing Engine

dotCMS CDN uses a powerful routing engine that analyzes real-time requests based on your content and network metrics to ensure your visitors constantly receive content from the optimal destination. We couple this with custom rules to control delivery, security, and routing, to make dotCMS CDN the spokes in your content wheel.


dotCDN allows you to permanently store a copy of your files on the CDN for a 100% cache HIT ratio. Experience maximum performance, even with uncached content. Integrated cache management in dotCMS makes caching seamless by designating caching as a step in your existing content approval workflows while allowing you to manage the cache from the backend manually.
