Replacing a file – On our CDN a file is propogated to data centers all over the world. If you replace a file on our hosting server, it can take time to get the new version everywhere. To speed this process up, when you replace a file email email@example.com so we can refresh the cache. That helps the CDN get the file to everyone quicker.
