Cert. for www/non-www

Switching this to ON makes it so certificates are generated for all base domains that both do and do not possess www. It also generates a certificate for all other domains that are configured to point to this site as well (alias domains).


To generate the certificates, each domain will be tested. Therefore, the domain must be configured in the DNS to point to QUIC.cloud. If the DNS entry for any of the domains does not point to QUIC.cloud, certificate generation will fail.

Enable Static Cache

Enable this option to cache static files in addition to dynamic files. If switched OFF, only dynamic files will be cached. De-activating this will purge the CDN cache of static file entries. The static file cache depends on the 'Expires' or 'Cache-Control' response header from the backend server. Please make sure that at least one of these are present.


Enable this if your site is under attack. Visitors will receive a reCAPTCHA verification before proceeding to secure the site. This verifies that the visitors are people instead of bots. It is HIGHLY recommended to keep this ON. Regardless of configuration, the servers have their own setting, so your visitors may redirect to reCAPTCHA anyway.

Generate Cert.

Last operation: 12/31/1969 19:00 - If you see this date it indicates you have never generated a certificate in QUIC.cloud. If a different date is shown, it refers to the last time you did generate a certificate in QUIC.cloud.


When using QUIC.cloud, browsers first visit QUIC.cloud (CDN), and then may visit the backend (your origin server) if necessary. This configuration option refers to that possible connection between QUIC.cloud and the backend. If you choose YES, the connection between the CDN and the backend server will use HTTPS. When choosing NO, the connection between the CDN and backend server will be over HTTP. When you select both, the connection between the CDN and the backend server will match the connection type used between the browser and QUIC.cloud (either HTTPS or HTTP).

Auto Certificate

If you intend to use the generated certificate, leave this on ON. Otherwise, if you have your own certificate you’d prefer to use, set this to OFF and the configuration boxes will appear.

Domain Alias

Input all domains here that also point to the main site IP. We allow a maximum of 5 domains aliases, but if you have more please contact us for assistance.


www.example.com is automatically considered a domain alias. No need to add it here.
