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 analytics. 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 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. Disabled
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 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 Configure cache duration rules 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 an SSL certificate 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 OCSP stapling OCSP stapling allows Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN) servers to retrieve OCSP details. This reduces the latency when clients send requests to validate digital certificates and minimizes the time that is consumed by clients to receive the validation responses. Disabled
Configure the force 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 a referer whitelist or blacklist to enable 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
Optimization Configure HTML optimization Compresses and removes HTML redundant content, such as space characters and carriage return characters, to reduce the file size. Disabled
Configure smart compression Intelligently compresses multiple formats of content to reduce the size of transmitted content. Disabled
Configure Brotli compression To compress static text files, you can enable the Brotli compression feature to reduce the size of the transmitted content and accelerate delivery. This topic describes how to enable the Brotli compression feature. Disabled
Configure the parameter filtering feature Specifies whether Alibaba Cloud CDN retains the parameters when a question mark (?)is followed by the parameters in the URL of a back-to-origin request. Disabled
Configure video seeking Allows you to seek through video or audio without affecting the playback quality. Disabled
Security Settings Configure WAF in the DCDN console Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN) is integrated with Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect your websites from vulnerabilities and attacks such as SQL injection, webshells, and cross-site scripting (XSS). Disabled
Configure bot traffic management To prevent your business from malicious traffic or crawlers, Alibaba Cloud Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN) provides the bot traffic management feature. This feature is integrated with AI intelligent protection and uses information such as authorized crawlers and threat intelligence to identify and block malicious requests. Disabled
Configure DDoS mitigation Alibaba Cloud Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN) integrates Anti-DDoS to protect accelerated domain names from distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Disabled
Configure rate limiting If the response time of your website is increased due to HTTP flood attacks, you can enable the rate limiting feature and use default or custom rules to block requests that are sent to your website. Disabled
Configure the region blacklist Dynamic Route for CDN (DCDN) allows you to block malicious requests that are frequently initiated from specific regions. Disabled
Configure Precise Access Control Precise Access Control uses common HTTP fields (e.g. IP, URL, Header, etc.) to set conditions to filter user requests and perform the configured action on matching requests to satisfy the customized protection needs of business scenarios. Disabled
Advanced Settings Configure IPv6 After you enable IPv6 in the console, IPv6 clients can send IPv6 requests to DCDN. DCDN can include the IPv6 information of the clients in back-to-origin requests. Disabled
Websocket Configure WebSocket Enables WebSocket to reduce server resource and bandwidth usage and facilitate real-time communication. Disabled
