Request Structure

Last updated: 2019-11-29 15:02:24

    1. Service Address

    The API supports access from either a nearby region (at cvm.tencentcloudapi.com) or a specified region (at cvm.ap-guangzhou.tencentcloudapi.com for Guangzhou, for example).

    It is recommended to use the domain name for nearby access. Based on the location of the client when calling the API, the request will be automatically resolved to the server in the nearest region. For example, if a request is initiated in Guangzhou, it will be automatically resolved to the server in Guangzhou, and the effect is the same as that when specifying cvm.ap-guangzhou.tencentcloudapi.com.

    Below lists the currently supported regions:

    Access region Domain name
