Question

Why are fees still incurred after I have stopped the Content Delivery Network (CDN) service for my domain?

Answer

If you have stopped the CDN service, fees are still incurred in the following scenarios:
  • Your local Domain Name System (DNS) server caches some resources. If the cached resources have not expired after you stopped the CDN service, the local DNS server still resolves the requested CDN domain that has been disabled into the corresponding CDN node. This causes a few network traffic fees in CDN.
  • The local DNS server caches some software download resources. The cached resources may still be valid after you stopped the CDN service. In this case, when some software download requests arrive, the local DNS still resolves the requested CDN domain that has been disabled into the corresponding CDN node. This causes a few network traffic fees in CDN.
