How to create a CDN resource in your billing panel if your site uses SSL

Stefan Posted by

Please note that you should not attempt to create a CDN resource using ‘http’ URL entries if your site uses SSL. All URL entries will be ‘https’ if your site uses an SSL certificate.

1) Log in to your client billing area.

5) The following fields need to be completed and steps followed:

– CDN Hostname: choose a single unique word for your CDN resource (‘Nublue’, for example) to be appended to your CDN SSL hostname, and enter this. With this done, you don’t need to make any changes to your DNS settings.

– Origin(s): specify your website’s domain name in the format of ‘mydomain.com’, without ‘https://’ or ‘www.’

– SSL Mode: to ensure that your CDN content (image files, JavaScript and CSS for example) serves securely over https, check that ‘SSL Mode – With SSL (advanced)’ is selected.

6) Next, scroll down and tick the Edge Groups you wish to use. These determine the continents where you’d like your site’s content served at an accelerated speed. You would generally tick all of these, unless there are specific continents that you don’t wish your site to target.

7) Click ‘Create CDN Resource’.

8) Now you’ll need to find your newly created CDN resource in the list and click the ‘Details’ button. Scroll to ‘DNS Settings’ and copy & paste the CDN resource address, which will be displayed as follows:

yourhostname.r.worldssl.net

9) And you’re done! That’s everything you need to do to create your Nublue CDN resource. Now you’ll need to configure your content management system to use the CDN.

You can find guides on how to configure your Smart Serve CDN with Magento, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and PrestaShop sites in the Guides section of the Nublue blog.
