Why a small amount of traffic fee is produced after the Alibaba Cloud CDN service is suspended?

Last Updated: Dec 20, 2017

Major reasons include:

  • Because the LocalDNS server has a cache, if the Alibaba Cloud CDN service is stopped but the cache has not expired, the LocalDNS will still directly hit the Alibaba Cloud CDN node with requests directed at the stopped Alibaba Cloud CDN domain. This will produce a small amount of Alibaba Cloud CDN traffic fees.
  • Some download software also has LocalDNS caches. In the period before these caches expire, a suspended Alibaba Cloud CDN domain may produce a small amount of Alibaba Cloud CDN traffic fees
