Zycache CDN Settings

Each Zysys WordPress Hosting comes with access to Zycache, a CDN maintained by Zysys. As a Zysys customer, you may already have access to this platform, contact your Zysys Tech Guru to find out more.

If you are running your own WordPress installation, we highly recommend using the Zysys Hosting Optimizations Plugin for Wordpress.

Available Content URLs

By splitting content up by domains, it allows for your content to be rapidly delivered to the requester - much faster than just using one domain.

  • http://www.zycache.com
  • http://zycache.com
  • http://cdn1.zycache.com
  • http://cdn2.zycache.com
  • http://cdn3.zycache.com

Filetypes maintained

If a filetype is removed from this list, it is safe to assume that the file was deleted from the CDN and it should not be relied upon. Usually, filetypes are taken out of the CDN if they aren't actively being used by requestors and just take up space on the CDN - therefore, it would be just as efficient to transfer them from the Zysys Infrastructure.

W3 Total Cache Settings

If these settings do not work, consult with your Zysys Tech Guru to ensure that your site is loaded into the CDN. The placeholder {domain} represents the actual url of the site, like zysys.org and not www.zysys.org. Your Zysys Tech Guru will set up your site on the CDN, but if you require an extra subdomain (like: site.domain.com), let your Zysys Tech Guru know and {domain} will reflect the subdomain (so {domain} may represent site.domain.com)

The following settings should be enabled.

WP SuperCache Settings

If these settings do not work, consult with your Zysys Tech Guru to ensure that your site is loaded into the CDN. The placeholder {domain} represents the actual url of the site, like zysys.org and not www.zysys.org. Your Zysys Tech Guru will set up your site on the CDN, but if you require an extra subdomain (like: site.domain.com), let your Zysys Tech Guru know and ={domain}= will reflect the subdomain (so {domain} may represent site.domain.com)
