    This document will guide you how to modify the DNS resolution record, so that WAF can protect the traffic generated when public network users access your website.

    Directions

    To protect the public network traffic to websites with WAF, you need to modify the DNS resolution record. The following uses waf.qcloudwaf.com as an example to describe how to modify its DNS resolution record on Tencent Cloud DNSPod.

    1. Log in to the DNSPod Console, click Domain Name Resolution List on the left sidebar, and then click Resolve on the right of the domain name qcloudwaf.com to be accessed to WAF.

    2. Click Add Record.

    3. Enter the information required on the configuration page.

      • Enter the server record of the corresponding website for Server Record. In this example, the domain name is waf.qcloudwaf.com, so "waf" is entered.
      • Select "CNAME" as the record type.

      • Enter the CNAME domain name assigned by WAF for Record Value. In this example, the CNAME domain name format is xxxx.qcloudcjgj.com.

        • Click Save after filling in all the information.

    4. When the modification is complete, DNS records will take effect and WAF will protect traffic accessing the website. Meanwhile, WAF will display Normal Protection on the console after detecting that the resolution of the protected domain name is normal.

      Note:

      DNS records will take effect in about 10 minutes.
