Adding Your Own Domain Names

Last updated: 2021-12-02 10:13:43

    To use CSS, you should have at least two domain names, one as the push domain name, and the other as the playback domain name. Push and playback cannot use the same domain name.

    Prerequisites

    You have activated the CSS service.

    Directions

    Step 1. Add your own domain name

    1. Log in to the CSS console and go to the Domain Management page.
    2. Click Add Domain to enter the domain name adding page and configure as follows:
      1. To add a push domain, enter the domain name, select its type as Push Domain, and click Confirm.
      2. To add a playback domain, enter the domain name, select its type as Playback Domain, select an acceleration region (Chinese mainland by default), and click Confirm.

    Note:

    • The domain name can be up to 29 characters and cannot contain uppercase letters.
    • By default, each account can add up to 100 domain names. To add more, you can submit a ticket to apply to increase the upper limit.
    • After adding your own domain name successfully, you can go to the domain name management list, and click the target domain name or Manage on the right to enter the domain name details page. Then, select Advanced Configuration to view the Region Configuration tab, click Edit to enter the region configuration page, reselect an acceleration region, and click Save.

    Step 2. Configure the CNAME record of the domain name

    Once your domain name is added, the system will automatically assign to it a CNAME, which ends with .tlivecdn.com. The CNAME can be accessed only after you configure it at your domain name service provider. You will be able to use CSS services once the configuration takes effect. For detailed directions, see Configuring CNAME for Domain Name.
