This article covers the steps to create a CDN Resource for your SSL-enabled general website. If your website is non-HTTPS, please follow this article: Enable CDN resource for general Website.
To create a CDN Resource for your SSL website, perform the following steps:
- Log in to your Client area.
- Go to Services → My Services.
- Locate CDN Service in your account.
- Client on the View Details button.
- Now, click on the New CDN Resources button to create a new CDN resource for your website.
- Click on HTTP as mentioned in the following image:
- Enter CDN Hostname and Origins, if you wish to add more than one origin, click on Add field button.
- CDN Hostname: This will be your hostname to access CDN resources.
- Origin: the location from where your data will be pulled.
- To create CDN with HTTPS, select With SSL (advanced) option from the SSL Mode dropdown box.
Note: you just need to enter CDN hostname without any . (dot) and without top-level domain (i.e., com, net, edu, etc.).
E.g., If your domain name is: domain.com, your CDN Hostname would be: cdndomain
Once you create the above, your CDN host will look like cdndomain.r.worldssl.net. For HTTPS CDN, our CDN provider appends their domain so that we can serve your content over HTTPS.
- Check the Edge Group option.
- Click on Create CDN Resource to create a CDN resource.
Now, your CDN resources are created. Add a CNAME record for the CDN hostname, which can be used to view the contents.
- To get a CNAME record, click on the Details button as mentioned in the following image:
- From DNS Settings, you can get your CNAME record.
- Make the necessary entry from your hosting control panel/DNS provider.
Note: Once you create CNAME, kindly allow a few hours to propagate the CNAME record.
