- The location of your content in the Origin URL field (The origin url needs to contain either http:// or https://)
- Add a path to a small file on your origin for monitoring purposes (e.g. /robots.txt, we’ll monitor that file for you)
- Your alias (e.g. cdn.example.com)
(optional) Select your product; SingleCDN or MultiCDN. In case you want to change the provider selection, click on advanced settings to adjust your mix.
Click the Create vhost button to finish.
To verify if setup was successful, you can:
- Use the vhost validation tool available in our portal
- Enter the following curl command in your terminal:
curl -I <label>.cdn.warpcache.net/<monitoringfile>, or
- Enter <label>.cdn.warpcache.net/<monitoringfile> in a page tester, such as Pingdom’s.
You can proceed to integrate using the cdn.warpcache.net host we provide you with, or first setup your own alias at your DNS provider.
