What is a property hostname?

This is an identifier that is used to determine which base configuration file to use when processing end-user HTTP/HTTPS requests for a subcustomer's resource. Often, the Property Hostname is the fully qualified domain name of the endpoint subcustomers use to access your cloud partner CDN. For instance, www.mycdn.com would be your endpoint domain name and your Property Hostname. A property hostname is sometimes referred to as a "digital property," too.

Note: A property hostname is sometimes referred to as a "digital property," too.

Wild Card Usage

You can use an asterisk (*) to indicate a wild card for a subdomain in a property hostname. On the top level, this causes all hostnames for that domain to use the associated base configuration. For example, if you set up a property hostname as *.example.com, both www.news.example.com and www.uk.news.example.com use the configuration.

Note: You must own the truncated portion of the domain when using a wildcard-enabled property hostname. Using the example above, you must own "example.com."
