How to use my own domain to host images instead of shopify CDN?

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience hosting images at your shop domain, but ouside of the shopify CDN?

I have some infographics that I would like to share and I would like to ensure that these benefit my site from an SEO perspective; this won't be possible using the shopify CDN.

Thanks,

Ryan S.

You could create a proxy and serve the images via that but don't expect the loading times to be the same - it will be slower. If you're curious, I did write a post about doing this a long time back. Even though it's old the basic concept should still hold up.
