Frequently Asked Questions
An XDN delivers your website and sits on top of your APIs / data.
Example XDNs include Netlify, AWS Lambda@Edge, Surge.sh, Github Pages, Zeit, Cloudflare Workers, and the Moovweb XDN.
An XDN differs from a Content Delivery Network (CDN) in that, in addition to caching content, it also serves the front-end of the website. More importantly, it understands the front-end of the website and as such enables a set of powerful features not possible with either standalone CDNs, or conventional front-end / monolithic site hosts.
Moovweb is not a direct Netlify competitor or alternative, AWS Lambda competitor, or competitor of most other XDNs as it was purposely built for complex, dynamic PWA / SPA / React sites that drive at least $10M in revenue, and typically much more.
