CDN Subdomin URL and Cloudflare

Hi, I created a Space, setup as CDN but for some reason, I cannot generate a custom subdomain using Cloudflare. Anyone knows how to do it? Thanks

Hi there,

It looks like that there has been a similar question for this here:

You should be able to get this to work by following the steps here:

  • Create Space + CDN
  • Create CNAME for your DigitalOcean CDN
  • Use Cloudflare’s tool to create origin server self-signed SSL Cert specifically for the CNAME created in step 2.
  • Use the Spaces CDN option to add a new subdomain certificate. Use the certificate details from step 3.
  • Make sure to include the CA certificate:
  • You can then proxy via Cloudflare.

Let me know how it goes!
