Does Tencent Cloud CDN have the acceleration capability on a global scale?

Yes. Tencent Cloud CDN has opened access to over 100 cache nodes accumulated over the past decade, across more than 30 countries and regions, providing customers with the acceleration capabilities on a global scale.

Do changes need to be made to origin server for the acceleration service to apply after the connection to CDN?

Basically, no change is needed. However, in order to achieve a better acceleration result, we recommend that you assign static and dynamic files to different domain names and only accelerate the static resources.

Does Tencent Cloud CDN support cross-region access?

Yes. No restriction is imposed on cross-region access in Tencent Cloud CDN. If cross-region access is needed for your website, you simply need to configure the Access-Control-Allow-Origin field in your website, or configure cross-region headers for your domain name in the CDN. For more information, see HTTP Header Configuration.

How do I use the Fault Self-diagnosis tool?

What is the difference between the local access diagnostics and the user access diagnostics?

Local Access Diagnostics: When you find an error with one of your resource accesses, you can initiate a test with the Local Access Diagnostics.
