Before you start, this article has the following dependencies:

- Log into your WordPress Dashboard as an administrator.
Go to the settings page for the W3 Total Cache plugin. Scroll down to the Content Delivery Network section, then enable the CDN and choose Origin Pull / Mirror as the type of CDN. See Figure 1.
- Save these changes, and then click on the CDN configuration.
Go down to the Configuration section for the CDN setup. Disable SSL support, then add your CDN CNAME to Replace site's hostname with: field. Save these changes, and then deploy your W3 Total Cache configuration. See Figure 2.
That's it! Load up your website to make sure that everything is working. If you have missing elements on your page, check to make sure all your settings are correct. Otherwise, you may not have waited long enough for the CDN to cache all your website content.
