Reference: Property hostname use cases
Here are a few use case examples that address each delivery type, both secure (HTTPS) and non-secure (HTTP).
Each of the use cases begins with the notion that as a Cloud Partner, you operate one or more domains that are directly related to their various PaaS/IaaS offerings, as either of the following:
- The DNS name published to "End-Clients" (browsers, applications, media players, etc.) in a fully-qualified URL.
- The origin hostname to which requests to vanity hostnames may be directed—typically, via a DNS CNAME record, and, especially, when there is no CDN in the request flow.
- The hypothetical Cloud Partner domain
- When referring to HTTPS delivery, examples use a Cloud Partner subdomain
secure.cloudplatform.net. (The “secure” record name is not technically required.)
