Every site will have CDN enabled by default and we highly recommend leaving CDN enabled on any active site.
This will help overall performance by having static assets loading geographically closer to your site visitors and keep your bandwidth use low.
Using Our Pagely CDN Plugin
We recommend that you use our Pagely CDN Plugin since most other solutions for adding a CDN to WordPress have many other features that you most likely wont need in our environment.
Note: The CDN Enable option in WordPress Dashboard > PressCDN will be disabled while the PressDNS distribution is being created for a new application deployment.
You can view and/or modify your site's CDN settings through the WordPress Dashboard by performing the following steps:
- Log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
- On the left side admin menu, hover over Pagely and click on PressCDN.
You'll now be presented with your CDN status as well as the ability to modify any CDN settings for your WordPress site.
The HTTP CDN URL should already be populated with a HTTP CDN URL assigned to your domain with the following format:
Your CDN settings should look like the example below.
Please note if your CDN endpoint requires SSL we'll need to issue you one using Amazon Certificate Manager (ACM), but other SSL providers may suffice if you require a different certificate. Feel free to contact support should you require assistance.
How Can I Find My CDN URL?
- Begin by logging into the Atomic control panel.
- On the left side menu, click on CDN.
- You'll now see a list of all of your CDN zones. Locate the site that you want the CDN URL for, and look the right-side column. Inside this column is your CDN URL.
Using a Custom CDN Host/Domain
You can use whatever subdomain you wish for your CDN host. To configure a custom CNAME for your CDN, please contact support to have it configured for you.
