Configuring ECDN

Last updated: 2020-09-23 10:22:50

    Tencent Cloud ECDN integrates static edge caching and dynamic origin-pull route optimization. Through Tencent's global nodes, ECDN can solve problems such as slow response, packet loss, and service instability caused by cross-border and cross-ISP data transfer.
    To configure ECDN, follow the steps below to sign up for a Tencent Cloud account, activate ECDN, add a domain name, and configure CNAME.

    Step 1. Sign up for a Tencent Cloud account

    If you already have a Tencent Cloud account, you can ignore this step.

    Step 2: Activate the ECDN service

    1. Complete identity verification

    Registered users must first complete identity verification in order to activate CDN. You can verify your identity in the CDN console or Account Center. For more information on the verification process, please see Identity Verification Guide.


    2. Activate the ECDN service

    After identity verification is completed, log in to the ECDN Console to activate ECDN service.

    Step 3. Connect a domain name

    ECDN caches the static resources on the origin server to the cache node through the acceleration domain name, and quickly pulls the dynamic content from the origin server through intelligent routing optimization, protocol optimization, and other dynamic acceleration technologies to achieve resource access acceleration. For more information, please see Domain Name Connection

    Step 4. Configure CNAME

    After connecting your domain name to ECDN, you need to configure the CNAME with your domain name provider. The ECDN service will be available after the configuration takes effect. For more information, please see CNAME Configuration.
