An inverse proxy is a device that it is between your browser and the final web server. As the name says, it works in the inverse way a common proxy does. The main goals of an inverse proxy are to speed up and bring security. Because they don't hold the content, they only take care of some matters such as:

  • Caching: inverse proxies can offload your main HTTP servers by frequently serving static content.
  • Load balancing: you can have a farm of HTTP servers, and your inverse proxy will do the load balancing among them.
  • Anti-DoS: inverse proxies are designed to manage a high load of TCP connections. Therefore, with the right configuration, they are the first line of defense for DoS attacks.
  • Authentication (if applies): you can add security layers to your application.
  • Content alteration: you can change something without touching your WEB application.

In this article, I am going to focus on the Caching. As the title says, we are enhancing the SEO ranking.
