Choose “Origins” and then go to “Create an Origin” to set your first origin.
Input any friendly name in the NAME field and input your origin URL into the HOSTNAME field and then press the SUBMIT button.
Go to SITES and then press Create a Site.
Input your domain and scan it.
You will see the results of the scan. If you wish you can change SITE NAME (any friendly name you want) and change the protocol if needed (not recommended). Then press Create Site.
You will receive the summary for created SITE.
Press on the SITE name (My inxy.com site) to configure it.
As you see from the screenshot you can use new URLs (Delivery domains). For example if you have a file inxy.com/background.jpg it will be available from k5p6h2j4.ssl.hwcdn.net/background.jpg
If you want to use CNAME you should add it to the list of delivery domains by pressing “Add another”. You should point the chosen CNAME (for example cdn.inxy.com) to CNAME target (cds.k5p6h2j4.hwcdn.net). After DNS propagation you will be able to use URLs like cdn.inxy.com/background.jpg
Keep in mind that if you use HTTPS connection you will have to upload a certificate issued for the CNAME you chose.
Update the URLs of your website using new CDN URLs and it’s done.
