  8. If you wish to create CDN with HTTPS, select With SSL (advanced) option from SSL Mode drop down box

    Note: When you create a CDN with HTTPS 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.worldcdn.net. For HTTPS CDN, our CDN provider appends their domain so that we can serve your contents over HTTPS.
