CNAME and CDN support

Hi there,

My DNS provider (Google Domains) doesn’t supports ANAME or ALIAS record.
If I use an A record Netifly says that I won’t benefit from the full advantages of a CDN.
If I use a subdomain and add a CNAME record, would I benefit from the full advantages of a CDN?

Thanks.

Hi, and welcome to Netlify!

The short answer is yes: if you use a CNAME on a subdomain you’ll get the full benefits of our CDN.

You can learn more about it here:

This includes info about an extra thing you may want to do: using an A record on your root domain to get a redirect.
