Using DO as a file host and delivery server
First of all I’m going to warn you I am extremely new to all this and have no experience yet with even managing a server. I’m currently using hostgator’s fully-managed VPS for a large website I have with ~70 GB of images and using ~1 TB of bandwidth a month. Now, because of this I haven’t been able to afford allowing users to download zip files that contain images bundled in one which is one of their biggest requests.
I discovered DO recently and I’m wondering if its possible to use DO as a file host and delivery network (I dont know if CDN would be the right term for this?). Where files.mydomain.com could be a direct link to files on DO while mydomain.com could still be hosted on hostgator’s VPS. I use cloudflare at the moment and I’m not sure if that would change how I have to manage getting this all setup.
I’ve searched around in the tutorials DO has but can’t find anything that lays out how to do all this (which I assume is partly because I’m not using the right keywords when I’m searching coupled to my lack of knowledge to begin with).
I would really appreciate any help you could provide!
