Guide for domain fronting

Domain Frontig is one of the CDN services that can be used to bypass the filtering system. For example, what the GFW system sees is discord.com, but by using the host field, we set the main destination of the internet packets to our own server, and in this way, the filtering system is bypassed.

This feature has been disabled in Cloudflare CDN because malware used to exploit it, but other CDNs can be used for this purpose.

  • Set the domain mode to CDN.
  • Enter your registered subdomain in the previous step, whose proxy is turned on.
  • If you want, in the Alias field, put a desired name to be displayed in the configurations.
  • In the Enable TLS Domain Fronting, you can enter the addresses of sites that use the CDN you want but are not filtered. Use DNS Lookup tool to find them. Find the right site here and put it in the domain fronting field.
  • Finally, if needed, you can put the clean IPs for the desired CDN in the the field Force Config to Use Following IPs .

  • The work is done. The desired CDN configs are set for domain fronting mode and you can use them.

As you know, it is always recommended to keep subscription links separate from configs. Therefore, if you have already created a subscription link, just add the new CDN domain in its settings so that the new domain fronting configurations are also connected to the subscription link.
