FieldsDescription
Client RegionSelect a region that defines this client zone. We currently support country-level granularity.
Client ISPSelect one or more ISPs that define this client zone.
Action TypeSelect the type of action to be performed to requests from this client zone.
  • Deliver = contents will be served by CDN360 servers to fulfill the requests from this client zone. Only one delivery action is allowed for each client zone. You need to select the server groups to deliver the contents.
  • Redirect = redirect client requests to another destination specified in the Redirect Target field (see below). This can be your origin site or maybe another CDN provider. There can be multiple redirect actions for each client zone.
  • Reject = client requests will always receive a response with a 403 - forbidden error message. Only one reject action is allowed for each client zone.
Server GroupIf Action Type is set to Deliver, select one or more server groups to handle the traffic for this edge hostname. CDN360 servers are organized into 5 groups based on the traffic cost from low to high: Standard, Premium, Premium+, Ultra, and nearChina. When you select one group, all the lower groups will be included automatically.
Note: nearChina is a special server group that can be enabled for you if you want optimal performance serving Chinese visitors, but your domains lack ICP Beian. To enable this server group, contact the CDNetworks support team.
Enable IPv6If Action Type is set to Deliver, select whether you want to enable IPv6 addressing.
Redirect TargetIf Action Type is set to Redirect, specify an IP address or hostname to which CDN360 will redirect your traffic.
WeightWhen a client zone has multiple rules defined, each of them will be used randomly with a probability proportional to the weight specified here.
