This tutorial explains a simple setup and verification process of Anti-DDoS Pro non-website protection through the Alibaba Cloud console. It does not cover all possible options.

This tutorial is suitable for users who:
  • Are interested in learning how Anti-DDoS Pro works.
  • Have purchased Anti-DDoS Pro and need to know how to set it up.
  • Want to test, verify, modify or delete Anti-DDoS Pro configuration.
