How Do I Safely Delete a Protected Domain Name?

To delete a website, see Removing a Protected Website from WAF. Before you start, get yourself familiar with the following precautions:

  • In cloud mode, if you want to remove a protected website from WAF, go to the DNS platform and translate the domain name to the origin server IP address before you remove it. Otherwise, traffic intended to the domain name will not be directed to the origin server.
  • If you select Forcible delete the WAF CNAME record., WAF will not check your domain name resolution and delete WAF CNAME record immediately. Before enabling this option, make sure you have resolved the domain name to the origin server, or your website will become inaccessible.
  • It takes a while to remove a website from WAF, but once this action is started, it cannot be cancelled. Exercise caution when removing a website from WAF.
