Pairing WordPress and QUIC.cloud

In order to use QUIC.cloud, you must pair it with WordPress. Here’s how to pair LiteSpeed Cache and QUIC.cloud in your WordPress admin.

Initiate in WordPress

Request Domain Key

Sign into the WordPress dashboard for the domain you’d like to use with QUIC.cloud. Navigate to LiteSpeed Cache > General, and click the Request Domain Key button, on the right side of the Domain Key box.

Approved Domain Key

You will see a notification at the top of the page, indicating that the application was successful. Wait a few minutes and then refresh the page. The Domain Key setting will have been automatically updated with the new key.

What if it doesn’t update?

In rare instances, there may be a problem generating a domain key for your site. Here are a few reasons why that might happen.

Domain Key Doesn't Generate

QUIC.cloud IPs are Blocked

In order for the WordPress plugin to communicate with QUIC.cloud, you may need to add QUIC.cloud IP addresses to your server firewall or security plugin. Please see Adding QUIC.cloud IPs to Allowlist to learn how.

QUIC.cloud Nodes are Down

If something has happened to the QUIC.cloud service node(s) that usually service your site, you can have the LiteSpeed Cache plugin redetect the local service nodes. Press the QUIC.cloud logo in the top right corner of the Current Cloud Nodes in Service box.

REST API Issue

It’s possible your WordPress REST API is not working properly. See Solving WordPress REST API Issues for more information.

Something Else

If your domain key hasn’t updated within 15 minutes, and none of the above scenarios apply, please contact our support team. We’ll be happy to help you pair LiteSpeed Cache and QUIC.cloud.

Next Step

The next step is to create a QUIC.cloud account. However, you only need to do so if you plan to use the CDN. An account is optional, if you only plan to use the QUIC.cloud Online Services for WordPress.

There are benefits to a QUIC.cloud account, though, including a handy dashboard where you can:

  • See detailed usage, statistics & even errors for all services
  • Have the ability to increase the quota limits with credits
  • Set up & manage all QUIC.cloud CDN options
  • Easily open a QUIC.cloud support ticket
  • Manage multiple domains in one place

NOTE: if you choose not to set up a QUIC.cloud account, then you are finished and you may begin using Image Optimization, Page Optimization, and other QUIC.cloud non-CDN services immediately.

See Creating a QUIC.cloud Account to continue.
