How to setup Supersonic CDN with Shared hosting

If your domain is hosted on a Shared hosting account, you can easily connect a Supersonic CDN to it.

NOTE: The domain should be pointed to our Web-Hosting DNS, Basic DNS or Premium DNS.

To connect your Shared hosting with Supersonic CDN, follow the next steps:

1. First of all, you need to purchase a Supersonic CDN plan.
2. Once the purchase is confirmed, you will be redirected to the CDN setup dashboard. Choose your domain from the drop-down menu and click Continue:

NOTE: It is not possible to use Supersonic CDN with subdomains.

2.The final step in the setup will be to paste the server IP address or the hostname. This information can be checked in the Hosting Welcome Email, in the Namecheap account >> Hosting management page or in the cPanel account >> General information section.

You can also contact our Chat Support if you need assistance with it and they will provide you with the needed details.

PLEASE NOTE: in case the CDN is being installed for the main domain (the domain your  hosting package is attached to), the system doesn't ask to put the  origin manually but redirects to the Activate now! page right away.

3. Confirm your actions on the next page by clicking on Activate now!:

4. Then you will be offered to upload the SSL certificate for the website. You can either upload the SSL certificate at once or skip this step and do it later:
