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 (Portugal) is deployed as a web server and behaves like a web server. However rather than storing the website content in Portugal, 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 Portugal and has a Portuguese IP which are both important parameters in search engines' algorithms. From a user and search engine perspective the website 'appears' to be in Portugal.
Our reverse proxy server in Portugal is a Linux HTTP proxy server which has been configured to allow Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) content to pass through.
