How can I associate a domain to my account?

If you have a ShortPixel account then you can also associate one or more domains to it, so you can start using your ShortPixel credits to have the images served via the ShortPixel CDN.

  1. Login to your account
  2. Select "Associate Domains" from the menu

  3. Associate the domain(s) you want

Important observations

  • you have to associate your domain without the "www". For instance, example.com will work, while www.example.com will not.
  • please note that it may take up to 5 minutes after you associated a domain, for the CDN to start serving the images instead of redirecting to origin.
  • if you are using your own CDN, you'll have to associate your custom CNAME as well (see this for more information). For example, if your domain is example.com and you configured SPAI to serve images from cdn.example.com, you'll have to associate both example.com and cdn.example.com.
  • if your assets (images, CSS, JS) are served from a custom and unique domain, you'll have to associate that domain as well. For example, if your domain is example.com and some (or all) your assets are served from k9u6i7t4.stackpathcdn.com, you'll have to associate both example.com and k9u6i7t4.stackpathcdn.com.
  • if you have ShortPixel Adaptive Images installed on a staging website (e.g. staging.your-hosting-provider.com) you need to associate staging.your-hosting-provider.com to your account.
  • Do not associate any domain that is not unique and used only by you. For example, do not associate instagram.com, because if you did so, everyone using SPAI and having assets loaded from instagram.com would use your credits!
