Adds a domain name to ApsaraVideo Live. This operation allows you to add only one domain name at a time.

Usage note

  • You must activate ApsaraVideo Live before adding any domain name. For instructions, see Activate ApsaraVideo Live and purchase resource plans.
  • You must obtain an Internet content provider (ICP) filling for a domain name to be added to ApsaraVideo Live.
  • Only one domain name can be submitted at a time.
  • When adding a domain name to ApsaraVideo Live for the first time, you must verify the ownership of the domain name first. For instructions, see Verify the ownership of a domain name.
  • Since February 19, 2019, domain names added by using the AddLiveDomain operation and the AddCdnDomain operation cannot use live center ingest. That means only edge ingest is available for the domain names added since then.
  • Due to the above mentioned fact, you must first add an ingest domain (by setting the LiveDomainType parameter to liveEdge ) and a streaming domain (by setting the LiveDomainType parameter to liveVideo ). Then, call the AddLiveDomainMapping operation to bind the ingest domain and the streaming domain.
  • Live domains created by using the AddLiveDomain operation before February 19, 2019 still support live center ingest.

Thus, we recommend that you observe the QPS limit on this operation. For more information about what a single user means and the QPS details, see QPS limit on an API operation in ApsaraVideo Live.
