Hello,

I believe that you should be able to do that with the CORS policies. You can basically set CORS policies to allow embedding of content from your domains:

You will want to add your exact domain including subdomain and HTTP/HTTPS https://www.mydomain.com and check the GET box.

Hope that this helps!
