By default, all the content created are stored in Whatfix's CDN (Content Distribution Network) unless you intentionally host it on your other preferred server. Based on your use case, you can host the content on Whatfix Cloud or self-host it on your own network.

  • Whatfix Cloud - You can use Whatfix CDN or Whatfix Server to host the content. Whatfix Server can be used only if you have access to your application code to embed a javascript code. Whatfix CDN ensures quick transfer of contents using the multiple servers located around the world. By distributing contents using the nearest CDN server, your website visitors experience faster page loading times.
  • Self Host - You can export Whatfix content and host it on your preferred server (Amazon S3, Apache web server, Private server). This allows you to to keep all of your Whatfix content on your servers to reduce dependency on outside servers. Self Hosting is typically preferred when,
    • Your application runs on an intranet
    • You do not want Whatfix to access your site's information
