First CDN configuration

First, you need to create a CDN Resource. Just click on the Add New CDN Resource button to proceed.

  1. To begin, you need to set an origin. It can be your website URL, IP address of your server, or CDN storage.
  2. Next, you just need to set a label for the Resource. The label is there for you to identify different CDN resources in the client section easily.
  3. When you are ready, hit Create CDN Resource button.

Your CDN should be up and running in less than 15 minutes after its creation. You can check by accessing the CDN URL of the Resource (e.g. 1234567890.rsc.cdn77.org). It will show your website once the Resource is ready.

CNAME DNS configuration (optional)

CNAME is technically an alias for a different URL, so instead of using the CDN URL looking like “1234567890.rsc.cdn77.org” for your implementation, you can just use something like “cdn.example.com”. You can add a new CNAME in a few steps:

  • With Your DNS (Domain Name System) provider: In your DNS control panel, create a new CNAME record, following the instructions displayed in the window. This is necessary so that the CNAME is in the DNS records.
  • In the Client Control Panel: Add a new CNAME in the "CNAME & SSL" tab. A window should pop up displaying “Your CNAME has been created” right after hitting the “Add CNAME” button. You can display this pop-up again, anytime you need, by clicking the Instructions tab.

Example: cdn.example.com IN CNAME 1234567890.rsc.cdn77.org

If you are not familiar with DNS configuration, please contact your domain provider to assist you to configure the DNS settings for your domain. All information you might need is located in the Instructions tab. Also, please note that DNS changes could take up to 24 hours to fully propagate.
