CDN Add-On Installation

1. To get started, log in to the BitssCloud dashboard, then create an environment with an application that is available via HTTP.

2.  To Install the CDN add-on on the top layer of your environment, open Marketplace finds the Edgeport-Premium CDN add-on and click on Install. For the clustered applications it is usually a load balancer layer.

3.  Choose the environment and the node to be accessible via CDN.

4.  As installation is finished, you will get a success popup window with the CDN URL format: ${env.envName}-$ {clusterSufix} .

5.  To initiate the website content propagation over the closest PoP of the CDN, open the URL.

Note: It takes time for the CDN network to propagate changes – up to one hour.

6.  As soon as your environment becomes accessible via CDN, you have to make your static assets downloadable from PoPs by changing the URL links.

Modify DNS to enable BitssCloud Edgeport CDN for Custom Domain

Once you’ve created a CDN service for your environment, it is automatically enabled by pointing the DNS records for your domain to the CDN network. In case, you need to bind your custom domain (e.g. ) to the CDN network, it should be done via add-on settings.

Let’s consider how to do this. Press the Add-On button of the load balancer instance.

Find CDN Add-On and press Configure.

Custom CNAME is the most important. Customers can use their own domains by binding them via CNAME to ${env.envName}-$ {clusterSufix} You can specify multiple domains with separators: “ “ or “;”

High Availability Method

Choose an appropriate method of how to ensure High-Availability mode which is our unique feature and advantage. During scaling of the layer with the CDN add-on, the platform automatically updates the records of available nodes for traffic distribution inside the CDN Network.

Round Robin (RR) – well-known round-robin distribution
Primary Failover (PF) – always to the first, if not available to the next, and so on till the last

Purge, Purge All, and Uninstall

If the user is in needs to make the CDN refresh the static assets at PoPs there are two actions are available Purge and Purge All. They are intended to carry out cache clearance at Points of Presence. Once the assets are deleted, the CDN begins downloading their fresh copies from an origin server.

Purge deletes specific assets following the path-

Meanwhile, Purge All deletes all of the static assets at the PoPs, just asking the user to confirm cache clearance.

Congratulations! You successfully implemented the CDN onto your website that makes it load from the nearest geographic location, thus making site loading lightning fast.
