    2. ECDN Billing Modes

    Tencent Cloud ECDN billing modes consist of bill-by-number of requests and bill-by-traffic exceeding the free tier limit, that is, the total cost consists of the fees respectively incurred by the number of requests and the traffic exceeding the free tier limit. For more information, please see Billing Overview.

    3. Getting Started

    3.1 Activate the service and select the billing mode

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

    3.2 Connect a domain name

    To activate the acceleration service for your business, you need to connect an acceleration domain name. ECDN caches static content on edge servers to enable nearby resource access for users and quickly pulls origin servers to get dynamic content through intelligent routing optimization, protocol optimization, and other dynamic acceleration technologies, realizing resource access acceleration. For more information, please see Domain Name Connection.

    3.3 Configure CNAME

    When the domain name connection is completed, ECDN will assign a corresponding CNAME address to you, which needs to be configured before the acceleration service taking effect. For detailed directions, please see CNAME Configuration.
