doctl compute cdn create <cdn-origin> [flags]




This command creates a Content Delivery Network (CDN) on the origin server you specify and automatically generates an endpoint. You can also use a custom subdomain you own to create an additional endpoint, which must be secured with SSL.

The Time To Live (TTL) value is the length of time in seconds that a file is cached by the CDN before being refreshed. If a request to access a file occurs after the TTL has expired, the CDN will deliver the file by requesting it directly from the origin URL, re-caching the file, and resetting the TTL.


--certificate-idSpecify a Certificate ID for the custom domain
--domainSpecify a custom domain to use with the CDN
--formatColumns for output in a comma-separated list. Possible values: ID, Origin, Endpoint, TTL, CustomDomain, CertificateID, CreatedAt
--help, -hHelp for this command
--no-headerReturn raw data with no headers
Default: false
--ttlThe “Time To Live” (TTL) value for cached content, in seconds
Default: 3600
