A service is the Fastly term for a set of configuration to apply to an identifiable portion of inbound traffic. Traffic is routed to a service based on the domains which are assigned to it, and the service may forward that traffic to any of its assigned backends.

A selection of APIs exists to create services and define their inputs and outputs. To configure the behavior of services, see the VCL objects section.
