For our customers using the previous implementation of Kinsta CDN (powered by KeyCDN), we’ve got some exciting news. Starting September 28, 2021, we will begin migrating your CDN service to the new Kinsta CDN.
Why Change From KeyCDN to Cloudflare CDN?
Using a CDN with your site is essential for optimizing page load times and efficiently delivering content to your customers and visitors. With Cloudflare’s global network, you get even more benefits:
- Enterprise-level firewall and DDoS protection.
- HTTP/3 support.
- A network that spans 250 cities in 100+ countries.
- Primary domain support (no secondary CDN domain needed).
- Up to 40% improved CDN performance.
- Cloudflare’s interconnected network can reach 95% of the world’s population within 50 ms.
What About Custom Setups?
We’ve got you covered! As we migrate your site to the new Cloudflare CDN, we’re also implementing a temporary redirect from kinstacdn.com to your site’s primary domain. While that redirect is active, any hardcoded URLs or CDN URL entries in plugin or theme settings will redirect to your site’s primary domain. This way, static assets will load as expected.
You and your visitors may notice that the redirect has an impact on website performance. To prevent any adverse effect on your site performance, update any plugin configuration or hardcoded references to the old kinstacdn.com URL to the new URL (which is your domain name) as soon as possible.
Which Version of Kinsta CDN Is My Site Using?
If you want to check to see which version of Kinsta CDN is enabled for your site, log in to MyKinsta and head over to Sites > sitename > Kinsta CDN.
Under the Kinsta CDN heading, you should see either Previous version of Kinsta CDN is enabled, or Current version of Kinsta CDN is enabled.
As a quick reminder: The previous version is powered by KeyCDN. The current version is powered by Cloudflare.
Manually Switching From Previous to Current Kinsta CDN
If your site is running the previous version of KinstaCDN and you want to switch it to the current version yourself, you can do that in MyKinsta.
Under Sites > sitename > KinstaCDN, click on the Remove Kinsta CDN button.
In the modal/pop-up that appears, confirm the removal by clicking on the Remove CDN button.
The Kinsta CDN page will update and show the Enable Kinsta CDN button, but it will be disabled/grayed out. Once the removal of the previous CDN is complete (usually within a few moments), a notification will appear in the upper right corner of MyKinsta, and the Enable Kinsta CDN button will turn purple and can be available.
Click on the Enable Kinsta CDN button to enable the current version of KinstaCDN, powered by Cloudflare.
In the modal/pop-up that appears, confirm by clicking on the Enable Kinsta CDN button.
Once the process is complete, a notification will appear in the upper right corner of MyKinsta, and the Kinsta CDN page will show the current version of Kinsta CDN is now enabled for your site.
