Domain management features

Feature Reference Description Default setting
Batch copying Copy configurations Copies one or more specific configurations of an accelerated domain name to another one or more accelerated domain names. None
Basic settings Modify basic information Modifies the accelerated region. None
Configure an origin server Modifies the origin information. None
Back-to-origin settings Configure the origin host Modifies 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. Ensures that the protocol used by back-to-origin requests is the same as that used by clients to access resources. 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 server. 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 server over HTTPS. You must enable this feature if the IP address of the origin server is associated with multiple domain names. Disabled
Configure range origin fetch Enables DCDN to retrieve content from the origin server 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 Adds or removes HTTP headers when HTTP requests are redirected to origin servers. Disabled
Dynamic acceleration rules Specify static file paths Specifies the paths of the static files. Disabled
Configure the static file types Specifies the file extensions of the static files. Disabled
Specify static file URIs Specifies the URIs of the static files. Disabled
Configure back-to-origin requests to retrieve dynamic content Ensures that the protocol used to retrieve dynamic content is the same as that used by clients to access resources. Disabled
Cache settings Create a cache expiration rule Customizes cache expiration rules for specific resources. None
Customize an HTTP header Allows you to customize 10 HTTP response headers. None
Customize an error page Customizes complete URLs to which requests are redirected based on the HTTP or HTTPS status code. 404
Create a rewrite rule Modifies request URIs and redirects them to the specified URIs based on the 302 status code. None
HTTPS settings Configure HTTPS certificates Provides an end-to-end HTTPS secure acceleration solution. You can enable the secure acceleration mode and upload an SSL certificate and the private key for an accelerated domain name. This feature also allows you to view, disable, enable, or modify the certificate. Disabled
Enable HTTP/2 Enables the binary protocol HTTP/2 to provide multiple benefits including scalability, security, multiplexing, and header compression. Disabled
Configure the forcible redirect feature Redirects requests from clients to L1 nodes as HTTP or HTTPS requests. Disabled
Configure TLS Enables a TLS protocol version for an accelerated domain name to enable TLS handshakes. 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 allow clients such as browsers to use only 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 Configures URL authentication to prevent unauthorized downloads of 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 filter visitors. Disabled
Configure a User-Agent blacklist or whitelist Allows you to configure a User-Agent blacklist or whitelist to authenticate and filter visitors. Disabled
Performance optimization Configure HTML optimization Compresses and removes HTML redundant content, such as space characters and carriage return characters, to reduce the file size. Disabled
