For using PDF from another domain you need to enable CORS.
For Apache server, add following lines to .htaccess
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Headers "Range"
Header set Access-Control-Expose-Headers: "Accept-Ranges, Content-Encoding, Content-Length, Content-Range"

PDF flipbook supports partial PDF download (it can display pages before entire PDF is downloaded). For that feature to work server needs to support range requests.
With PDF Tools you can create fastest loading PDF flipbook by converting PDF to images and JSON on the server. This flipbook will load pages faster because it will not load JS files required to process the PDF and it will load images and JSON from the server instead of loading and processing the PDF at runtime.
Flipbook created with PDF tools will still have PDF links, search and text selection working.
After you have created flipbook from PDF with PDF Tools, you can delete PDF from the server, which is the only real protection for your original PDF file.
