DNS to CDN to Origin

Content Distribution Networks (CDNs) such as Amazon CloudFront and Fastly have the ability to “pull” content from their origin server during HTTP requests in order to cache them. They can also proxy POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE, and OPTION HTTP requests, which means they can “front” our web application’s origin like this: DNS -> CDN -> Origin.
