Because many stores couldn't perform the necessary actions to activate the new CDN on time, we've decided to extend the deadline until May 31st.

Nevertheless, some measures have already been implemented for all stores:

  • HTTP is no longer allowed in the checkout pages. All stores now use the HTTPS protocol.
  • New folders (or the ones that have been changed) are already using HTTPS.
  • Inactive accounts (or the ones that were not in stable) have been updated to HTTPS.

Note that, to complete the activation of the new CDN, it's absolutely necessary to enable HTTPS throughout your whole website. Details on how to do that are in this VTEX Help article.

After enabling HTTPS, you must:

  • Update your DNS to VTEX's new CNAME.
  • Request activation of the the new CDN.

If your store's domain points to anything that contains vtexcommerce.com.br or hodor.vtex.com, you're still using the old CNAME. The update is necessary because all content will be hosted in {hostname}.cdn.vtex.com.

After May 31st, the old CNAMEs will stop working. All stores using them will crash.

After HTTPS is enabled and your store is updated with VTEX's new CNAME, you'll need to request the activation of the new CDN. If you don't do this until May 31st, the activation will be done automatically. That's why it's so important to follow the instructions already given and reinforced in this announcement: it's the only way to avoid future problems with your store.
