In some cases if you enable both CDN and DDoS Protection services, there could be a conflict between them. That is why there are several points to consider. DDoS Protection setting depends mostly on CDN integration method.
Static assets on a subdomain
We suggest you moving all static assests to a subdomain and using this subdomain as an origin for a CDN. Then enable DDoS Protection for the whole site but this subdomain. Thus you get the following advantages:
First, your static content control on the server and in a CDN becomes easier.
Second, you save money on DDoS Protection, as static content is heavy and it makes up the major bandwidth (legitimate bandwidth is one of the criteria taken into account while choosing a plan).
Working under this scheme the services do not intersect. Your main site is under our protection. The subdomain with static content is concealed behind our CDN servers and it is impossible to bring a CDN out of service: if one server becomes unavailable, content will be delivered from another closest server.
The only recommendation we give, if you use this scheme: move your server with static assets to a separate IP address, to assure the maximum level of protection.
Your entire site available on a CDN
If you do not have a possibility to move static content to a separate subdomain and you use the domain under protection as a CDN origin, the issues are possible while enabling the two services. Our filtration platform will identify requests from CDN servers as malicious and block them. As a result, users will not get static assests. That is why you should contact our technical support via chat, create a ticket in the control panel or write an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide all the recommendations and make the necessary settings.
If you have another CDN provider, but you are going to use our DDoS Protection service, please, notify us. We will make settings for your case.
If you have our CDN, but you are going to use another DDoS Protection service, please, notify them, you use CDN from SkyparkCDN. They will make special settings if necessary.
