Create DNS server records

Edge servers retrieve your content from the origin-server hostname before serving it to end users. 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. Perform this procedure to add a DNS record before switching to the 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 content that you want to have delivered by the edge network.
Note: The origin servers' IP addresses must match your domain's.
If the original DNS records contain:

For IPv4: ota-downloads.automotive-company.com. IN A 192.0.2.1

For IPv6: ota-downloads.automotive-company.com. IN AAAA 2001:0DB8:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234

The added records contain:

For IPv4: origin-ota-downloads.automotive-company.com. IN A 192.0.2.1

For IPv6: origin-ota-downloads.automotive-company.com. IN AAAA 2001:0DB8:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234:1234
