Apart from having the proper e-commerce features available at your disposal, you should also prioritize website performance in order to ensure your potential customers aren’t waiting too long for your website to load. An easy way to increase the speed of your nopCommerce site is to implement a CDN, or content delivery network. This guide will walk through the simple process of setting up a nopCommerce CDN integration using KeyCDN.

How to Setup a nopCommerce CDN integration

Follow the steps below to integrate nopCommerce with KeyCDN. This integration method works with the following versions of nopCommerce: 2.65, 2.70, 2.80, 3.00, 3.10, 3.20, 3.30, 3.40, 3.50, 3.60, 3.70, 3.80, 3.90, 4.00.

  1. Before starting the integration process, create a Pull Zone in your KeyCDN dashboard.
  2. Download the nopAccelerate extension and upload it via the nopCommerce backend
  3. Navigate to Administration > Configuration > Plugins and click the button “Reload list of Plugins”.
  4. Click the install button for the nopAccelerate extension.
  5. Once the installation is complete, navigate to Plugins > nopAccelerate CDN.
  6. Enter your Zone URL or Zonealias in the CDN Hostnames field (e.g. https://cdn.yourwebsite.com/). Be sure to include the protocol (http:// or https://) as well as the trailing “/”.
  7. Restart your nopCommerce application by clicking on the “Restart Application” link in the upper right corner of the nopCommerce admin panel.

That’s it! You can now check your page source to verify that your static assets are now using the CDN URL you defined instead of your origin URL.
