Adding a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to a website is a well-known and widely adopted method of speeding up a website. A CDN is basically a median network which delivers content to a user from its location rather than the host’s location. This means that client doesn’t have to contact the host repeatedly, which speeds up the delivery.
In this post, I’ll take you through the steps needed to integrate CDN with your PrestaShop store.
Implementing CDN to PrestaShop natively requires a bit of coding knowledge and can prove to be complex. Thankfully though, Cloudways allows you to integrate CDN to your PrestaShop store via a few simple GUI clicks, not to mention quickly.
Launch PrestaShop on Your Cloudways Server
First and foremost, head on over to your Cloudways server and launch your desired version of PrestaShop.
Now, navigate to your application dashboard. On the left toolbar, click CloudwaysCDN.
Now, on the CloudwaysCDN configuration screen, add the URL of your PrestaShop site under the website URL field.
Click create (you will see a screen similar to the above image).
Login to the Admin Panel of PrestaShop.
Now, go to Advanced Parameters and click Performance.
Now, scroll down to CCC (COMBINE, COMPRESS AND CACHE) section and turn on all the following choices as shown below.
Scroll down to the next section called MEDIA SERVERS (USE ONLY WITH CCC). In the Media server #1 field, enter your CDN URL that you get from the CloudwaysCDN.
Save all the settings and you’re done with setting up PrestaShop CDN
