Information about our load-balancer

We use nginx to distribute requests between multiple servers.

Because of this setup, the Request.UserHostAddress will be the IP address of our load-balancer instead of the IP address of the remote user. You can use Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"] to access the user's IP address.

Gzip Compression

The load balancer compresses (gzip) files sent from the backend servers. This way your application can perform faster while offloading the CPU intensive task of gzipping content to the load balancer.

The mime types that are currently compressed are: text/html text/css application/json application/x-javascript application/xml application/xml+rss text/javascript

Only responses over 20 bytes (determined by the "Content-Length" header) are compressed.

HTTP Headers

HTTP headers containing underscores are currently ignored and can alternative use hyphens or similar. If you need to use header with underscores feel free to follow up with our support
