DNS Setup

Accelerated Domains sits in between your visitor and the origin server in the Servebolt Cloud.

The way this is achieved is by routing the traffic to Accelerated Domains instead of directly to the origin server. Accelerated Domains will then proxy the traffic to the origin server.

How to set up your DNS#

There are two ways to configure your DNS for Accelerated Domains:

Record typeWhen to use
CNAMERecommended when you use a subdomain as the main domain for your website. i.e www.example.com or shop.example.com
A-recordRequired for APEX domains (domains without subdomain) if your DNS does not support CNAME flattening at root/APEX

CNAME#

To use CNAME point the domain that is configured for Accelerated Domains to routing.accelerateddomains.com

CNAME => routing.accelerateddomains.com

A-record#

To use A-records, point the domain in question to the following IPs:

104.18.2.50
104.18.3.50
