Using origin Space hostname as a CNAME target


Can I safely use an origin Space bucket hostname as a CNAME target instead of a CDN’s hostname? I’m configuring DNS and CDN on Cloudlfare, and I want to have a custom domain but using one CDN as a backend for another CDN seems meaningless. Actually it works, but I want to be sure it’s OK and it won’t break in the future.

You can use double CDN, it works flawlessly and Cloudflare is able to cache the content. I once opened a support ticket about using origin and DO team said that it is not possible
