    This document helps you get started with Tencent Cloud Content Delivery Network (CDN).

    1. Basic CDN Knowledge

    2. CDN Billing Modes

    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 Instruction.

    3. Getting Started

    3.1. Activate the service and select the billing mode

    Before using CDN, you need to sign up for a Tencent Cloud account and activate the CDN service. For more information, please see Overview.

    3.2. Connect a domain name

    You need to add an accelerated domain name for your acceleration service. Through an accelerated domain name, CDN caches resources on an origin server into a CDN cache node closest to the client to accelerate resource access. For more information, please see Adding Domain Names.

    3.3. Configure a CNAME record

    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.

    You can also follow the best practices below to get started with CDN and accelerate your domain name:
