Content Control Interfaces

Refresh served content and remove objects cached in the edge network.


Akamai’s Content Control can be used to refresh served content, allowing customers control over the refreshing or removing of objects cached in the edge network. It does this by taking advantage of the fact that when you serve content through the edge network, one benefit is the ability to cache content at the edge of the Internet, near the end user. The normal method to refresh or replace the content is to set a TTL (time-to-live) in cache for objects. With Content Control you can set this with max-age type response headers, or via a configuration file.
