How do I enable WebP image optimization?
WebP is enabled by default. Sirv automatically optimizes your images in the most suitable format for each users’ browser and screen. WebP is usually the smallest file-size for Chrome and Opera, so your images will be served in WebP format (regardless of what image format your original images are). Other browsers will receive either JPEG or PNG, whichever is most optimal.
Can I serve images from my own domain name?
You can serve images from any domain or subdomain that you own. All you need is an SSL certificate for that domain/subdomain. You’ll update your DNS to point the CNAME to your Sirv account, then all your images will be optimized and served rapidly over HTTPS from Sirv. Follow this short tutorial.
Can I host other files, as well as images?
You can serve almost any file from your Sirv account. Use it as a WordPress CDN to deliver JS files, CSS files, text/CSV/XML files, PDFs, PSDs and more. Think of Sirv as a complete CDN hosting solution for all your files, with the best possible image optimization and delivery.
