No. Incapsula leverages a distributed network of data centers (Points of Presence or POPs) that ensures that every user and website are serviced by the closest POP. This is the same principal technology that is used by most large websites to accelerate content delivery through a Content Delivery Network (CDN). In fact, Incapsula will make your site run faster and consume less computing and bandwidth resources by caching site data and applying other acceleration techniques. The website performance enhancing characteristics of the CDN more than offset the extra hop introduced by routing traffic through our network. The net result is lower latency and faster loading webpages.
