How to set up CDN services

The most common functionality of our CDN that is used by our customers is "HTTP PULL".  Here is how that can be configured once you have signed up for a CDN service:

1) Log into https://tcp.my-tss.com with your billing email address and password. 

2) Click on "Services" at the top, then click on the "My Services" dropdown option:

6) Specify your CDN hostname (i.e. cdn.whatever-your-domain-is.com), as well as the "Origin Domain", or the domain from which your content originates (i.e. www.whatever-your-domain-is.com):

9) Next you need to adjust the dns.  To find the appropriate dns information, you will need to click on the "details" button:

10) Scroll down a bit, and you will find the cname information:

(Your dns entry will be slightly different, but it should be something like this: "cdn.whatever-your-domain-is.com IN CNAME 123456789.r.w6cdn.com")

11) Log into your cpanel account using your cpanel login details, then click on the "Advanced DNS Zone Editor":

12) Use the dns information found in step #10 from this tutorial to fill in the following fields, then click to "Add the Record":

-- "Name" will be whatever your cdn hostname is "cdn.whatever-your-domain-is.com"
-- TTL can be the default 1400 or you can adjust that as desired.
-- For the Type, select "cname" from the dropdown menu
-- The "CNAME" field should be something like "123456789.r.w6cdn.com"

13) Finally, you will need to modify the source code of your website and replace the URL for images and other cacheable content with your CDN hostname. 
<imgurl=“http://www.whatever-your-domain-is.com”> becomes <imgurl=“http://cdn.whatever-your-domain-is.com>
