Step 4: Update DNS settings

Last Updated: Jan 15, 2018

When configuration is complete, you can reroute traffic to WAF.


  1. Log on to your DNS configuration panel.

  2. Update a previous DNS record either with the CNAME generated in Step 1. Set up WAF console, or the WAF IP address acquired in Step 3. Verify local settings.

Note: Although both CNAME and A record are supported for rerouting traffic, we strongly recommend that you use CNAME rather than A record, to guarantee a higher success rate.

When a specific virtual IP or data center fails, emergency measures are activated automatically to reroute traffic to another virtual IP or the origin. This avoids further negative impacts on your online business.

Using GoDaddy as an example, update the DNS settings as follow.
