Full Site Integration

Full site integration means delivering all content in your website (static or non-static) through the CDN. For example, your website is www.example.com and all the content is served through this URL.

To implement full site integration:

  1. Create an HTTP Pull CDN resource.

    When creating the HTTP Pull CDN resource:

  2. After the creation of the CDN resource, set up a CNAME to xxxx.r.worldcdn.net for example.com.

    To find information on the CNAME:

        1. Go to your Control Panel > CDN > Resources menu.
        2. On the following page, click the label of the required CDN resource.
        3. On the page that appears, under the DNS Settings section, the details on the CNAME are provided.

  3. Set a redirection rule on the web origin to redirect example.com to www.example.com.

Visitors, who go to www.example.com or example.com, will get the website content using the CDN. All the content will be cached in the CDN PoP when full site acceleration is set up.

Please note that you should configure dynamic content, such as databases, not to be cached.

There are two ways to exclude specific files from being cached:

  • As our CDN honors the HTTP cache header settings on the web origin, set the HTTP header to No-Cache for the HTML file on the origin server. Thus, our CDN will not cache the HTML file on our side.
  • Use the Wildcard Invalidation Rules feature on your OnApp Control Panel server.
