CNAME record configuration in DNS settings

For the delivery to work:

1. Go to a domain registrar's site.

2. Open resource records settings and add a CNAME record.

CNAME record can be specified in the following way:

cdn.example.ru. in uu-98566126.gcdn.co.

Use dig command in the terminal or online services to check the record.

If the record was added correctly, you will get a response like this:

cdn.example.ru. 14399 IN CNAME uu-98566126.gcdn.co.

 

Personal domain in the gcdn.co zone (For PRO 10TB CDN tariff)

If you do not have access to the DNS records or prefer to work with our shared SSL certificate, you can create a personal domain in our — gcdn.co — zone.
