I found this article from 2017 and I’m not sure how relevant it still is in this regard.
If I understand it correctly, Netlify handles things like load balancing, ddos protection etc. automatically for static pages (if my domain is either registered/ or delegated to Netlify).
Now I’m wondering how this behaves for NextJS sites hosted on Netlify that use server-side rendering with the new Essential Next Plugin. If I understand it correctly, NextJS’s server side rendering is made possible by Netfliy Functions.
- Now I’m wondering if Netlify functions have also load balancing, have ddos proection, etc. (like the static pages)?
- What happens if I have a page on my website that uses the
getServerSidePropsmethod and this page is requested very often (on each initial request and for cache invalidation) or is subject to a Ddos attack. Do I have to think about a strategy or does Netfliy handle this automatically for me? If so, how is this working?
Thanks in advance
