Can I designate a shield node for my origin servers?


Fastly offers an origin shielding feature that allows you to designate a specific point of presence (POP) as a shield node to your origin (backend) servers. Check out our article on how to enable shielding for more information, but be sure to read our article on the performance and billing caveats of shielded services. We’ve also put together a handy article that deciphers the cache hit and miss headers you’ll see when shielding is enabled.
