ApsaraVideo VOD provides multiple regions around the world. You can access resources from the nearest region. Each endpoint corresponds to a storage region. You cannot access resources across regions. This topic describes the API regions that correspond to service regions, API region IDs, endpoints (domain names), storage regions, and storage region IDs.


  • The API region ID corresponds to the value of the RegionId parameter in API operations or SDKs. For more information, see List of operations by function.
  • The endpoint (domain name) corresponds to the endpoint in the URL of the HTTP (HTTPS) request to access ApsaraVideo VOD by calling API operations. For more information, see Request syntax.
  • The storage region ID corresponds to the value of the StorageRegion parameter that you can specify during the upload. For more information, see Overview.
  • The service region and storage region must be the same. Users in the Shanghai service region who have specified China (Beijing) as the storage region can continue to use the endpoints in the Shanghai service region to call API operations. You can view the region list in the upper-left corner of the ApsaraVideo VOD console.
