Serving Domain Setup : Instructions for specific domain providers

PageSpeed Service was turned off on August 3rd, 2015. Please see Turndown Information for PageSpeed Service.

This page contains provider-specific instructions for changing the DNS settings of your Serving Domain to point to PageSpeed servers. This is the final step of the setup process as explained in Setup Guide.

If your provider is not listed below, try searching your hosting provider's documentation or use your favorite search engine to find instructions to add a DNS CNAME-record. Also please feel free to write to us if you have feedback or need assistance.

Note that changes to DNS records may take up to 24 hours to propagate. Consider using the tool at www.whatsmydns.net to check your site's DNS records around the globe.
