Hi

I use AdRotate (https://www.adrotateplugin.com/) for my banners on my blog. Right now they dont get served by my cdn when a visitors visit my site instead they get received bay my host and slow tings down. Can i use some sort of url change so instead off www.exemple.com/wp-content/banners/banner.jpg it look more like this: cdn.exemple.com/wp-content/banners/banner.jpg when it comes from that address my cdn handle the file.

can this be fix?

If your banners are all in a single directory separate from other files that you may still want to be served directly a basic rewrite like the one below should do the trick:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.*)www.exemple.com/wp-content/banners/$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://cdn.exemple.com/wp-content/banners/$1 [R=301,L]
