How to Create a Small Object CDN Resource?

There are two different methods that can be preferred while creating a Small CDN Resource: Origin Pull and Origin Push.

  • The Origin Pull Method: It requires a domain or an IP address that belongs to your server where you store your contents. Your contents will be pulled from the source URL and cached at the edge server nearest to the end-user.

  • The Origin Push Method: It caches contents similar to the origin pull method. The only difference is the source of your content. Your contents will be stored on Medianova Cloud Storage and it will act as an origin to the Small CDN Resource.

Your contents will be served from Medianova edge servers to the end-user with a URL like “”. If you would like to use a different domain, you can create a CNAME record and redirect it to Medianova domains. In that way, the content on your website will be delivered to the end-users via the domain name you have defined.

Following file extensions are not allowed in a Small CDN Resource. The service will return a 403 error when calling these type of flies.
