Page rules can be used to customise your Peakhour settings for different sections of your site. For example you might want to customise CDN caching options for your checkout process, or pagespeed optimisation. Page rules are also ordered with the first matching rule being executed.

page rules

Configuration options

Pattern will be matched against URL path. It is possible to use * in pattern. Normally pattern is expected to start with / symbol. Patterns are matched in order of adding, strings are case sensitive.


  • /
  • /some/path/to.jpg
  • *jpg


Enable or disable GZIP

Websocket enabled

Support websocket protocol.

Track sessions

Set session id cookie if enabled. Allows to track what request were made by client during one session


HTTP redirect location

Redirect to URL if set.

HTTP redirect status code

If HTTP redirect location is set then redirect with given status code (normally either 301 (default) or 302).



Cache resources using external fetcher

CDN query mode

Criteria to use when considering and storing fetched resources and query string behaviour.

Setting Description
none don't cache resources with a query string
full cache resources using the full query string
strip cache resources but strip the query string

Implicit cache TTL

In seconds. Specify the lifetime of cached objects.

Skip CDN if request has cookie matching given pattern. Pattern can contain * to match zero or more symbols and | to separate matches.

CDN remove query args

Remove given query arguments with its values from request path before looking up CDN resource. Value is comma-separated list of argument names.

Cache enabled

Enable in-memory, in-line caching of content.

Content is cached based on the Cache-Control header.

Cache subkey vars

Use additional variables to construct cache key in addition to host/path. Accepts |-separated list of key[:value] variables.

Scheme Description
query cache based on query string, cache key is based on query string
header_present cache based on request header present, cache key is based on header name
header accepts request header name as value, cache key is constructed based on header value
language cache based on Accept-Language, cache key is constructed based on first value of header

Cache strip cookies

Strip Set-Cookie headers from stored responses and Cookie from outgoing requests to potentially cacheable resources.

Edge TTL sec

Force cache resources for at least given seconds. If resource can be cached for longer (because allowed by cache control or implicit cache ttl) then cache it for longer than given value. Zero value (default) honors origin resource headers. The value is internal and not visible to clients, they still get original headers.

Browser TTL sec

Override Cache-Control: max-age for cached contents to have at least given value. Negative value (default) honors origin resource headers. Zero value means cached resources are not allowed to be cached by clients (max-age=0). The value is not used by RP itself in any way but only returned to clients to allow browser and RP cache to store same resource for different time.



Comma separated list of blocklists.

Modsecurity mode

Specify how the WAF reacts to security violations.

Setting Description
none disable
enforce send a HTTP 403 when a rule is triggered
warn log the violation and allow to pass, useful for testing

Modsecurity removed rules

List of rule rules to skip.

Pagespeed disable rules

Enable specific pagespeed rules.

Pagespeed enable beacon

Specify beacon behaviour for real user instrumentation.

Pagespeed enable downstream cache

Lua request headers filter

Lua script to execute on request.

Lua response headers filter

Load balancing mode

Specify load balancing mode.

Setting Description

Setting Description
none no rate limiting

vhost rate limit virtual-host
vhost-busy rate limit on virtualhost-busy
zone rate limit to zone

Rate limit zone
