Tell edge servers how to find your origin server

Edge servers retrieve your API content from the origin-server hostname before serving it to API clients. In a property configuration file, you specify which origin-server hostname the edge servers use. The DNS configuration for your dual-stacked hostname must include both A and AAAA DNS record types, returning both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Complete this task to add a DNS record before using the Akamai edge network.

How to

On your authoritative names servers, create DNS records for your origin-server hostname by using the following naming convention: origin-<original origin hostname>
where <original origin hostname> is the hostname of the API that you want to have delivered by the edge network.
For example, if the original DNS records contain:

For IPv4: my-api.hostname.com. IN A 192.0.2.1

For IPv6: my-api.hostname.com. IN AAAA 2001:0DB8:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234

The added records contain:

For IPv4: origin-my-api.hostname.com. IN A 192.0.2.1

For IPv6: origin-my-api.hostname.com. IN AAAA 2001:0DB8:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234
