Can a file be uploaded using the default domain name?

Hi all!

I have a link embedded in my website that downloads a PDF (i.e. 'file to download'). The URL for the PDF uses Duda's default domain name like this: https://irp.cdn-website.com/siteID/files/uploaded/file.pdf (this is just an example).

I want the PDF to be linked to be my paid domain name that I have linked to my site. Example: https://adhere.org.au/files/file.pdf

Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Hi Jade, you can manually create a redirect as a url option or forwarder for the pdf if preferred. You cannot change the CDN url.

    I've tried this on several occasions and it failed to work each time I tried. I cannot get the redirect to connect to the PDF files using the redirect. It just keeps going to the original CDN url. What am I missing here?

    It will go to the CDN address. It's a redirect not a mask. The only reason to have a redirect is to make typing out the location shorter (not the destination).

    Then this redirect idea is of no help to those who want to see their domain name attached to their PDF files for marketing purposes.

    I can understand that, but it was never mentioned that this was a Domain Masking solution. Its simply a redirect (taking you from one URL to another). If you need the PDF available on your domain, you may need to set it up as a mask in your DNS. Or if you want, you can use a custom widget to embed the PDF in your website on its own page and make it downloadable.

    Hi all. That is an alright workaround which we will use. Similiar to RoyalOakFarm, we were hoping to have the domain name appear on the PDF when it's open for marketing reasons but if that's not a current feature, I understand.

    Thank you.
