Custom Path Feature

This feature enables our customers to define rules in files or file formats for content that is stored under our CDN structure.

To use this feature you have to first login to the panel.medianova.com with your e-mail address and password.

  1. Click on the Zones section.

  2. This feature can be used for Small and Large objects in the Zone list. You can make the settings related to this feature by clicking the Manage> Custom Path tabs for the Zone you want to configure in the Zone list.
  3. You can list, edit, delete existing custom paths, add new ones, and perform reordering on the screen. We have explained how to do these operations for you below.

Create a Custom Path

After clicking the Manage > Custom Path tab, a screen like below will appear. A new custom path can be defined by clicking the Create button here.

The following configurations are required on the screen. Explanations about the fields are given below.

  • File Path: Enter the desired path to be valid for these settings. Only one path can be entered for the setting page. Take the host page as an example www.medianova.com:

    • / * = The settings apply to all files and folders.

    • / cdn / = The settings apply to files and folders under the CDN folder.

  • File Extension: The extensions that are desired to be valid for the settings are specified without a dot. Multiple extensions are written with a comma.

    • jpg

    • jpg, png

  • Valid Referrers: Only requests from the specified website are allowed. If medianova.com is specified as the sample value, only requests from medianova.com are accepted. Others are rejected. Multiple values are written with comma.

    • .com

    • .com, * .medianova.com

  • Browser Cache: Specifies the amount of cache time for the browser (Google Chrome, Firefox).

  • Cache Time: Specifies the cache time for the content on CDN servers.

  • Ip Restriction: Restrictions on which IPs will be available. Only IPs entered can access. If left blank, it will be available for all IPs. Use a comma for multiple IPs.

    • 111.28.0 / 24 (can be defined as IP block.)

  • Security Headers: A security header is added to prevent some attacks and leaks.

    • X-XSS Protection: To protect the website from XSS (Cross-Site-Scripting) attacks, some header information on the server-side is added to the response header.

    • HTTP Strict Transport Security: HSTS converts the HTTP request made by a user to the web browser to automatic HTTPS. It provides a more secure connection between servers.

    • X-Frame: Clickjacking technique, which is one of the hidden attacks used to click on the Internet users without being aware of them, is related to the X-Frame Options Header.

    • X-Content Type: Supported by Chrome and IE browsers, X-Content-Type-Options is the Security Header that analyzes the file type of the content by doing MIME Type Sniffing on the webserver.

  • Custom Headers: It contains three different values. These are:

    • Request Header Add: Contains header information sent to the original.

      • Xcdn medianova “Can be written as an example.”

    • Add Response Header: Contains header information to be displayed on the browser. Users can view these headers by doing a resource review

      • Xcdn medianova “Can be written as an example.”

    • Hide (Response Header Concealment): Headers to hide

      • Expires “Can be written as an example.”
