What is a reverse proxy server?
A reverse proxy server is an intermediary computer server which sits between a computer accessing the internet, and the destination website providing the website content. The reserve proxy is controlled by the website supplier.
The reverse proxy is deployed as a web server and behaves like a web server. However rather than storing the website content in Germany, the reverse proxy forwards the request to a "parent server" where the content is stored. The reverse proxy server can cache website content, which reduces page load times.
Our reverse proxy server is located in Germany and has a German IP, which are both important parameters in search engines' algorithms. From a user and search engine perspective the website appears to be in Germany.
Our reverse proxy server in Germany is a Linux HTTP proxy server which has been configured to allow secure sockets layer (SSL) content to pass through.
