The Alibaba Cloud Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN) console allows you to configure and manage domain names. It also provides resource monitoring for real-time data analysis. The DCDN console also displays the billing status and allows you to change the billing method. This topic describes the DCDN console and the domain management features.

Note To help you understand and obtain up-to-date information about DCDN, this topic divides the features in the DCDN console into domain management and service management based on your business requirements.

Domain management features

Feature Reference Description Default
Copy configurations Copy configurations Allows you to copy one or more configurations of an accelerated domain to another one or more domains. None
Basic settings Modify basic information Allows you to modify the accelerated region. None
Configure an origin server Allows you to modify the origin information. None
Back-to-origin settings Configure the origin host Allows you to modify the domain name of the origin host. Enabled
Configure the static origin protocol policy Enables DCDN to communicate with the origin based on the specified origin protocol policy. If you specify the Match Client policy, DCDN communicates with the origin over HTTP or HTTPS, depending on the protocol of the client request. Disabled
Enable authorization to access private buckets Grants DCDN permissions to access the specified private Object Storage Service (OSS) bucket that serves as the origin. Disabled
Configure an origin SNI Allows you to set a Server Name Indication (SNI) value to specify the requested domain name when DCDN communicates with the origin over HTTPS. You must enable this feature if the origin IP address is bound to multiple domain names. Disabled
Configure range origin fetch Enables DCDN to retrieve content from the origin based on HTTP range requests. This reduces the back-to-origin data usage and shortens the resource response time. Disabled
Customize an origin HTTP header Allows you to add or remove HTTP headers when DCDN communicates with the origin over HTTP. Disabled
Dynamic acceleration rules Specify static file paths Allows you to specify the paths of the static files. Disabled
Specify the static file types Allows you to specify the file extensions of the static files. Disabled
Specify static file URIs Specifies the Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) of the static files. Disabled
Configure the dynamic origin protocol policy Enables DCDN to communicate with the origin based on the specified origin protocol policy when DCDN requests dynamic content from the origin. If you specify the Match Client policy, DCDN communicates with your origin over HTTP or HTTPS, depending on the protocol of the client request. Disabled
Cache settings Create a cache expiration rule Allows you to customize cache expiration rules for specified resources. None
Customize an HTTP header Allows you to customize HTTP response headers. DCDN provides 10 HTTP response headers for customization. None
Customize an error page Allows you to customize a full URL to redirect to for an HTTP or HTTPS response code. 404
Create a rewrite rule Allows you to modify a request URI and perform a 302 redirect to the specified destination URI. None

Configure the forcible redirect feature Redirects requests from clients to L1 nodes as HTTP or HTTPS requests if HTTPS secure acceleration is enabled. Disabled
Configure TLS Enables a Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol version for an accelerated domain to enable the TLS handshake. Only TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, TLS 1.2, and TLS 1.3 are supported. Disabled
Configure HSTS Configures HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to force clients such as browsers to use HTTPS to connect to the server. Disabled
Access control Configure referer-based hotlink protection Allows you to configure a referer blacklist or whitelist to authenticate and authorize visitors. Disabled
Configure URL authentication Allows you to configure URL authentication to prevent unauthorized downloads and access to the resources on the origin server. Disabled
Configure an IP address blacklist or whitelist Allows you to configure an IP blacklist or whitelist to authenticate and authorize visitors. Disabled
Configure a User-Agent blacklist or whitelist Allows you to configure a User-Agent blacklist or whitelist to authenticate and authorize visitors. Disabled
Performance optimization Configure HTML optimization Compresses and removes HTML redundant content, such as blank lines and carriage return characters, to reduce the file size. Disabled
