You need to activate Dynamic Content Delivery Network (DCDN) before you can use it. This topic describes how to activate DCDN.

    After you activate DCDN, you can click Alibaba Cloud Management Console to go to the DCDN console.

What to do next

Add a domain name

Deactivate or stop the billing of DCDN

If you directly deactivate DCDN, your business may be interrupted. Therefore, Alibaba Cloud does not allow you to deactivate DCDN in the console. However, if you do not add domain names to DCDN or use features such as edge security and EdgeRoutine, you are not charged for DCDN. This is equivalent to deactivating DCDN.
