Step 4. Verify local settings

Last Updated: Feb 07, 2018

Before you update DNS settings and route all the traffic to Anti-DDoS Pro, we recommend that you verify the forwarding settings locally to guarantee availability.


Follow these steps to perform the verification:

  1. Manually bind the virtual IP address provided by Anti-DDoS Pro with the domain name in your local hosts file (for example,C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts, in Windows). The domain name is then resolved to Alibaba Cloud’s IP address solely on your local device.


  2. Refresh your local DNS cache. For example, run the ipconfig/flushdns command at the command line interface in Windows.

  3. Browse your website through the domain name in your browser.

    • If the website is opened successfully, your configuration is properly set.
    • Otherwise, check your configuration or open a ticket to contact Alibaba Cloud Technical Support.
