How to add a site?

Preliminary Step: Check the eligibility of your site

Once you have verified your Mlytics account, the preliminary step is to add your site to the Mlytics platform. 

The site name should be a root domain, e.g. example.com. Check this article to learn more.

After pressing the ‘Check’ button, the system will check for the existing domains of your site which are eligible to Multi CDN solution. 

Step 1: Review domains

On this page, you can activate/deactivate the Multi CDN solution, edit an existing DNS record, and/or add another record. 

On this page, you can choose which domain you want to deploy the Multi CDN solution by switching the toggle to ‘Boosted’. By default, each domain will be installed with 3 Basic CDNs, namely Cloudflare, StockPath, and Global Accelerator.

Each plan has a quota of free total CDNs that can be installed in your account. Exceeding the quota will be charged. Check the pricing page to learn more about the free quota on each plan and the price of additional CDNs.

After reviewing your domains, click the ‘Next’ button to proceed.

Step 2: Review DNS records

The next step is for the system to list down all the DNS records of your site for review. 

On this page, you can activate/deactivate the Multi CDN solution, edit an existing DNS record, and/or add another record. 

Check this article to learn about managing your DNS records.

After reviewing the DNS records, click the ‘Next’ button to proceed to the final step.

Step 3: Set up DNS (Optional)

The final step is to set up the Managed DNS.

Here, you need to access the registrar of your site, to replace its current nameservers with Mlytics nameservers.

Mlytics will verify the nameserver migration and will send you a notification once the nameservers are verified and activated. The verification process may take up to 24 hours.

Performing this step will automatically activate the Multi CDN functionality and install Zero SSL. However, if you skipped this step, you need to manually a) set up the Mlytics CNAME, and b) install SSL certificate/s.

After you finish all the steps, click the ‘Finish’ button, and you will be directed to the ‘Overview’ page.

On the ‘Overview’ page (and also on the ‘DNS records’ page), if the nameserver verification is still in process, you’ll see the ‘Check nameservers’ button. Clicking it will check the verification process again.

After the nameserver is verified, a green highlight notification will notify you that the nameservers have been checked. Clicking the ‘I know it’ button will remove this notification, and only the nameserver information will remain.

It is advised that you double-check the DNS records to see whether all the records are being included.
