I want to add CloudFlare CDN to my website, but I’m currently working in a staging environment.
Can I add it to my staging environment? It’s using a different URL than my live website and I know that CloudFlare CDN connects via the domain so I don’t know what to do. Can I only add it to the live version of my website? Or is there a way to add it to the staging site so that I can test everything out before pushing it to the live site?
Once everything transfers from the staging site to the live site, will I need to make any final changes during the transfer so that the live site gets everything it needs (since the CDN might have only been associated with the staging URL)?
I’m using Imagify for image optimization on WordPress and there’s an option to connect a CDN of my choice for the image optimization. Should I connect CloudFlare CDN to Imagify on the staging site? Or should I only do that for the live site? This is a screenshot of where I would connect Imagify with CloudFlare CDN: Image 2021-08-25 at 6.56.03 PM
I don’t want to use CloudFlare’s image optimization service at this time. I want to stick with the free plan.
Thanks in advance for any help!
