By default, Transparent Edge geolocates all requests that pass through our systems by sending a header to the origin with the country code from which the request was made. This is the Geo_Country_Code header.

geo_country_code: ES

If the system was unable to locate the user's IP, it sends the Unknown string in the header.

Thanks to this feature, there are a great many things we can do based on the location of the end user, such as:

  • Block/permit content from certain countries.

  • Send requests to different origins based on the geographical location of the end user.

  • Serve special content by country.

  • Rewrite headers based on the country the request came from.

  • Custom rules based on that header.
