Domain key

During the installation and startup, the request domain key option will appear.

What is a domain key and what is it for? What is and what is its purpose?

The domain key is used to connect your site to the service. is a CDN (a CDN is a global network of servers that quickly delivers data, using cache servers and PoP “access points” that are geographically closest to the user. Your site’s static content is stored on each server in the network.).

With it, you will be able to further and significantly speed up your site. It will help you with image optimization and caching static parts of the site to further speed up the site and reduce the load on the account.

We advise you to create an account by entering your email address, as you will have additional options and an overview of cache usage and optimization.

Considering that this is a premium option and the hosting provider (in this case, us) pays for this feature, you get it without any additional charges and already have the paid option to use image optimization and CDN. We will cover this more in other articles.

Now, in the same place in the general options, it is necessary to add the IP address of the server where your site is located. By clicking on “Check my public IP from”, the server’s IP address will appear right next to it, as shown in the image, and all you need to do is select the IP address, enter it in the field above, and then click on “Save Changes”.
