Overview

MetaCDN is pleased to announce the long-awaited launch of custom SSL support for our Website Accelerator service. This allows customers to securely use their own branded domains (e.g. https://cdn.yourdomain.com) when accelerating websites or content using the MetaCDN Website Accelerator. You can enable Custom SSL on your own domain name from as little as $200 per month. For the rest of July, we are offering free setup on all Custom SSL services, saving you up to $1000!

Background

Using Custom SSL on a single CDN has historically been a very expensive proposition, due to the overhead in deploying certificates, and securing the dedicated IP space needed to deliver content when using custom SSL certificates. Since MetaCDN harnesses the power of multiple CDNs to deliver your content, the cost and effort could be multiplied several times over if it was done naively.

Our mission was to create a Custom SSL service that worked seamlessly and reliably across multiple CDNs, while being extremely cost effective for our users. As such, we are pleased to announce a number of different Custom SSL options for our users depending on their budget and needs, starting from as low as $200 per month. This is the most cost effective and powerful Custom SSL solution for Multi CDN on the market, and is cheaper than many competing Custom SSL solutions for single network CDN providers as well.

Custom SSL Services

Shared Domain Option – Free

MetaCDN already offers “Shared SSL” for free with all MetaCDN Website Accelerator plans, allowing you to securely deliver your assets using our global CDN, and avoid the dreaded mixed-mode or unsafe content messages. Customers using this service prepend their website accelerator name to sa.metacdn.com (for example, mydomain.sa.metacdn.com). This lets you securely deliver your content via a branded MetaCDN subdomain (e.g. https://mydomain.sa.metacdn.com).

Shared Certificate Option – $

You supply your domain name(s) to MetaCDN (e.g. cdn.mydomain.com), and we add those name(s) to the Certificate SAN field of a MetaCDN managed UC certificate. This allows customers to securely use their own branded domains (e.g. https://cdn.yourdomain.com) when using MetaCDN.

Shared Wildcard Certificate Option – $$

You supply your wildcard domain name(s) to MetaCDN (e.g. *.mydomain.com), and we add those wildcards(s) to the Certificate SAN field of a MetaCDN managed UC certificate. This allows customers to securely use any of their own branded subdomains (e.g. https://assets.yourdomain.com, https://images.yourdomain.com, https://files.yourdomain.com, etc) when using MetaCDN.

Custom (dedicated) Certificate Option – $$$

You supply your own SSL certificate, which can be Standard/EV/UC/SAN/Wildcard. We deploy this certificate to our network. This allows customers to securely use  their own branded domains (e.g. https://cdn.yourdomain.com) or subdomains (if the supplied certificate is a Wildcard certificate) when using MetaCDN.
