Clickio CDN Activation for Sites that Use Cloudflare CDN as a Proxy

Clickio CDN should be activated only after receiving confirmation from your Clickio account manager, that Prism is ready to go live.

Please follow the steps below to activate Clickio CDN in your Cloudflare account.

Step 1

Create a new A type record pointing to the IP address of your server. This will allow Prism to get content directly from your origin server.

  • Log into your Cloudflare account.
  • Select your site and go into the DNS tab.
  • Click Add Record and add the following record:
    • Type - A;
    • Name - master;
    • IPv4 address - the IP address of your server;
    • Proxy status - DNS only (the cloud should be grey, as in the screenshot below).
  • Click Save.
  • Inform your Clickio manager after this is done.

Step 2

After you receive a confirmation from your Clickio manager that Prism is ready to go live, you can switch traffic to Clickio CDN.

After this step, 100% of your website’s traffic will go through Clickio CDN.

  • Log into your Cloudflare account.
  • Select your site and go into the DNS tab.
  • For all domains and subdomains that are switching to Prism, change existing CNAME records to wpcdn.clickiocdn.com
    • If there is no CNAME record for a domain or a subdomain, you need to delete the existing A record and create a new CNAME record instead.
  • Make sure that Proxy status is set to Proxied (the cloud is orange, as in the screenshot).
  • Click Save.
