Set up a CDN

When publishing your Misskey instance, we strongly recommend using a CDN such as Cloudflare.

Using a CDN has the following advantages

  • You can have static content cached, which reduces the load on your server
  • The IP address of the server is less exposed, which can mitigate DoS attacks etc.


Misskey Web is completely static and does not require a server to run. Therefore the whole Misskey Web can be cached in a CDN. The Misskey API cannot be cached.

You need to configure the following settings in your CDN

  • Cache all requests except /api/*.

You don't need to clear the cache when you update Misskey.
