Reverse Proxy

What is a reverse proxy?

Reverse proxies manage server-side requests within networks, executing tasks like data encryption, decryption, authentication, caching, and load balancing when returning a request response to the user.

How do reverse proxies work? 

The reverse proxies cache content from an origin server temporarily, delivering it to clients upon request without interacting further with the server, a process known as web acceleration. A domain name system (DNS) evenly distributes requests among multiple reverse proxies.
