This document helps you get started with Tencent Cloud Content Delivery Network (CDN).
Tencent Cloud CDN has two billing modes: bill-by-bandwidth and bill-by-traffic. You need to understand the two CDN billing modes so that you can choose the right mode for you. For more information, please see Billing Overview.
Before using CDN, you need to sign up for a Tencent Cloud account and activate the CDN service. For more information, please see Configuring CDN from Scratch.
You need to add an acceleration domain name for your acceleration service. Through an acceleration domain name, CDN caches resources from an origin server to a CDN cache node closest to the client to accelerate resource access. For more information, please see Adding Domain Names.
When the distribution is created, CDN will assign you a corresponding CNAME address, which needs to be configured before taking effect. For detailed directions, please see CNAME Configuration.
