Question

Cloudfare CDN - why?

  • Posted January 8, 2021
  • CDN

I was trying to work out why a static file served up with http was stale when I noticed the response header had ‘cf-cache-status: HIT’ which I understand is added by Cloudfare CDN. I wasn’t aware I’d added Cloudfare CDN, how did that happen? When I look at the ‘Spaces’ tab in Control panel it says there aren’t any.

It’s on a droplet, but I’ve just been reminded that the domain is registered through Cloudfare…would that add CDN services?

Hi there @mandydandy,

Is your website deployed on a Droplet or on the new DigitalOcean App Platform?

If it is on the new App Platform, then this is normal behavior. The App Platform comes with a Global CDN powered by Cloudflare.

For more information you can take a look at the feature here:
