To Implement Web Acceleration with 5centsCDN follow the below instructions:
Once all your tests have passed, point your DNS entry yourdomain.com to the 5centscdn hostname (i.e, yourdomain.com to pull-id.5centscdn.com). Set a low TTL (5 minutes, 300 seconds) in case you need to switch back. Once you’ve confirmed everything is working, increase the TTL to 24 hours (86400 seconds) or more.
Origin Shield: - If you enabled this option Origin Shield will stand between your origin and our edge servers. Our unique origin shielding protects your origin server from a huge number of request from our CDN Edge Nodes. Our origin shield is deployed with complete redundancy to ensure stability, control, and security.
SEO: As you start using our CDN, your content can appear from different domains. Nothing wrong about that as long as the search engines have clarity about your content. If the content is not clearly declared, they will penalize you for duplicate content. We offer two options, both options fulfill the goal of not having duplicate content and are aligned with search engines.
1) Add canonical header: - This option adds an HTTP header to cached objects on the CDN, telling search engines the location of the original file on your origin server. With this information, services like Google Image Search can link to the original source in search results, and avoid crawling the same content multiple times, saving you bandwidth.
2) Robots.txt : - This is a text (not html) file you put on your site to tell search robots which page you would like them not to visit. Robots.txt is by no means mandatory for search engines but generally search engines obey what they are asked not to do.
Search engines check for a robots.txt file at the root of a site. If the file is present, they will follow the instructions but if no file is present, they will scan everything. We will not be enable to see the file by default, meaning that everything will be indexed.
Manage Cache: This option will enable the user to purge the CDN cache for a given site. To do this Click on Manage Cache. There you will have to options:
1.Purge All : This option will purge every file from the site's cache on the edge servers and gets rebuilt from the origin from next request. 2.Purge Files : This option enables the user to Purge Individual files from Edge Cache by specifying those files in the available Purge Tab.
Domain Lock :- This Feature restricts the Zones to be watched only in a particular website or domain so that there will be no unauthorized viewing and complete protection for your copyrighted content. You can also specify a particular IP on which the content can be played.
Geo Block :- If your Content has to be restricted on a particular Geolocation or to be made available to watch only on a specific region, you can now decide the region of presence for your live content using Geo Block. Here you can also specify a particular IP range on which the streams can be allowed to be played or to be blocked.
Secure Token :- It is the one of the strongest security feature addon provided by 5centsCDN, which works on a secure authentication based method. Enabling this will make your content secure to a great extent. Secure Token works with a secure code which is generated randomly and end user IP address, only incorporating both of these parameters the content could be played.
SSL :- It stands for Secured Socket Layer is cryptographic protocol designed to provide communication security over the Internet. SSL encrypts the data being transmitted so that a third party cannot "eavesdrop" on the transmission and view the data being transmitted. Only the user's computer and the secure server are able to recognize the data. Transfer using HTTPS will encrypt the data using a particular algorithm and the same algorithm is being used to decrypt the data on the receiving end.
1.Shared SSL :-Shared SSL is a free of cost SSL method provided by 5centsCDN, which will make your zone in HTTPS mode, without having to purchase your own SSL certificate. Instead, you will use our own SSL certificate on our server. To activate it select the SSL Type as Shared and click on the Save buttoon.
2.Custom SSL :- Custom SSL enables the user to install your own SSL Certificate, Private Key. You could upload the certificate that you will be receiving from your DNS providers. To activate it select the SSL Type as Custom and provide your Certificate (CRT) along with intermediate certificates (CA) and Private Key in the respective fields. Once you have done that click on the Save button
