Enabling the CDN and adjusting your DNS

  4. Note the address in purple and click Continue

After the DNS is changed, it can take up to 20 minutes for an SSL certificate to become active. This means your website will not function for 20 minutes or so via https://. If you want to avoid this, you can upload your own SSL certificate at https://my.quic.cloud.
