A couple of years ago, I started using my Amazon S3 account to distribute the WordPress Plugins I wrote. Seemed like a great way for people to download the plugins without adding load to my server. At the time, I didn’t want to place the plugins in the WordPress Plugin Directory.
Each Amazon S3 Bucket has a long url that can be difficult to remember . Here is how I used the Amazon S3 account as a CDN to distribute my plugins.
cPanel & Simple DNS Zone Editor
Login into your hosting account’s cPanel and click on Simple DNS Zone Editor.
Next, create a CNAME record by typing the CDN URL (e.g cdn.example.com) into the name field and the Amazon S3 bucket URL into the CNAME field. Click Add CNAME Record button. The new record should be instant.
