Shipping: Origin Server Information
April 10, 2013 | Justin Dorfman
In May 2012 we enabled a feature that would automatically fetch the IP address of the origin server url you specified using a local DNS resolver we have installed on each edge server. This fixed a lot of issues like when a customer would be behind a load balancer with 2 different public IP’s or if they where on a share hosting plan and their host moved them to a new cluster. We assumed everyone would want this feature on by default but our assumption was wrong. We are pleased to announce the return of the “Set your own IP” feature.
We also added the type of server your origin is running. We have more features coming but you are the customer so please tell us what you want in the comments.If your Pull Zone was created after May 2012, By default we automatically get your IP. This is how it will look in the Control Panel.
