Configuring the Embedded CDN

Salesforce B2C Commerce comes with an embedded Content Delivery Network (CDN). The embedded CDN ensures low response times for consumers by serving content from a location close to the consumer, and helps to make your site (or sites) highly scalable.

Subdomains of the same zone can be configured on the same B2C Commerce instance, or on different instances of different realms of the same retailer. So, for example, it's possible to configure on the Production instance, on the Development instance, and on the Production instance of the EU realm.

The embedded CDN is active only for the Development and Production instance types. You must configure the embedded CDN for your custom hostnames (subdomains) before you can route traffic through the embedded CDN. You should also consider using Enforce HTTPS for increased security.
