Yes. You can connect a wildcard domain name in the WAF Console.
- If a wildcard domain name, such as
*.test.com, is already connected to Tencent Cloud, then any of its sub-domain names cannot be connected to another account.
- If the wildcard domain name
*.test.comis already connected to your account, then wildcard domain names in formats such as
*.a.test.comcannot be connected to this account.
- If you add both a wildcard and a precise domain name (e.g.
a.test.com), WAF first uses the protection policies configured for the precise domain name.
Verify that CNAME configuration for your website domain name is correct. Once you add a CNAME record in DNS, please wait 10-20 minutes for the protection status to be updated. If you have waited over 30 minutes, and the protection status has not been updated yet, you can contact us for help by submitting a ticket.
In principle, the intermediate IP address of your domain name is not changed. If it happens, we will notify you by SMS, email or Message Center. You can view your intermediate IP address in the Domain Name List of the console.
The business content on your real server must be legal, and you can modify the DNS resolution properly. Otherwise, you will not be able to connect your domain name to WAF.
WAF performs origin-pull based on domain name or IP. You can choose which option to configure as you need. For more information, see Add a Domain Name.
See CNAME Configuration for how to bind CNAME with your DNS service provider.
No, it won’t. You can go to the WAF Console, click your domain name in the Domain Name List, and view the CNAME in Basic Settings.
No, you can’t change it, in principle. However, if an exception occurs to your WAF service, you may contact us quickly by submitting a ticket so that we can switch it to another working VIP address for you.
You can enter a CNAME address from other proxies or any other domain name as forwarding domain name. The domain name you entered and the one you added to WAF cannot be identical, and the protocol type (HTTP or HTTPS) can be left empty.
