You could absolutely use us with a shared hosting provider! All you need is:
- The hostname of your webserver, otherwise known as the backend (this needs to be different from the hostname your users reach you on, and will be added to Fastly in the Origins/Hosts section).
- The hostname of the website your users will reach you at. This will be added to Fastly under the Domains section.
- Origin hostname: origin.example.com
- Website hostname: www.example.com
Armed with those pieces of information you can create your first service in Fastly.
Cpanel integration isn’t currently done, but if you had a site hosted in such a place you’d just need the above two pieces of information to still use our service.
