Serve CMS Content with a Content Delivery Network (CDN)

Deliver Salesforce CMS content to your users with higher performance than ever through a CDN. A CDN is a distributed group of servers that work together to deliver your content quickly and efficiently. Readily connect content to your sites through Community Cloud or to custom applications through public channels. And conveniently share your email marketing content and templates from Salesforce CMS with Marketing Email in Lightning.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

How: Serve your content from a CDN such as our CDN partner, Akamai, or use one of your own. To create a public channel, open the CMS Channels page in the Salesforce CMS app, click Create Channel, and select Public Channel.

Create channel menu

Then, on the CMS Channels page, click Dropdown icon | Edit beside your public channel.

In the Channel Settings window, you can configure a domain that links content from your public channel to the CDN and seamlessly deliver content to your users.

Enable Domain in Channel Settings


To serve content to your website through Community Cloud, configure a CDN for your community in Setup instead of in the Salesforce CMS app.

Share email marketing content and templates from Salesforce CMS with the Lightning Content Builder. Add a domain, create, or select a workspace and channel in CMS. Then, designate a channel to use with the Lightning Content Builder.
