    Parameter Value Description

    Enter the domain name that you want to accelerate, for example, example.com. Note the following information:
    • You can use a subdomain name as the domain name for CDN, for example, cdntest.example.com.
    • ApsaraVideo VOD does not support wildcard domain names, for example, example.example.com.
    • You cannot add duplicate domain names to ApsaraVideo VOD. If a DomainAlreadyExist error is displayed, check whether the domain name is added to other cloud services such as ApsaraVideo Live, Dynamic Route for CDN, Secure CDN, or video surveillance system. You can also submit a ticket.
    • You can add a maximum of 20 domain names to ApsaraVideo VOD for each Alibaba Cloud account. To increase the quota, submit a ticket.
    • Content that is served from the domain must comply with the limits of ApsaraVideo VOD. For more information, see Domain verification.
    Note The specified subdomain names must belong to the same Alibaba Cloud account. When you add a domain name, Alibaba Cloud CDN verifies the ownership of the domain name. If the specified subdomain names belong to different accounts, an error message appears. For technical support from Alibaba Cloud, submit a ticket.

    Success message

    After your domain name is approved, you can view the domain name on the Domain Names page in the ApsaraVideo VOD console. If the domain name is in the Enabled state, the domain name is added to ApsaraVideo VOD.

    Note
    • If the review of your domain name is urgent, submit a ticket.
    • If the origin server is an ECS instance or an OSS bucket, less time is required to verify the ownership of the domain name.
    • After a domain name is added to ApsaraVideo VOD, Alibaba Cloud CDN assigns a canonical name (CNAME) to the domain name. The Alibaba Cloud CDN service takes effect only after you configure a CNAME record for the domain name. For more information, see Configure a CNAME record in Alibaba Cloud DNS.
