  8. To create CDN with HTTPS, select With SSL (advanced) option from SSL Mode drop down 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 Host name 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 contents over HTTPS.

    Now, your CDN resources are created. Add a CNAME record for the CDN hostname which can then be used to view the contents.

  11. To get a CNAME record, click on Details button as mentioned in the following image:

  12. From DNS Settings, you can get your CNAME record.
