Adding Domain Names

This section describes how to add an ingest domain name and a streaming domain name.


Adding Domain Names

Add the ingest and streaming domain names to Live. The following describes how to add an ingest domain name. The procedure for adding a streaming domain name is the same.

  1. Log in to the Live console.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Domains.
  3. Click Add Domain. On the displayed page, enter an ingest domain name.

    Figure 1 Adding a domain name
    Table 1 Domain name parameters



    Domain Name

    Enter a sub-domain as the ingest domain name or streaming domain name. Enter up to 42 characters.

    An ingest domain name must be different from a streaming domain name. Wildcard domains are not allowed.


    Domain Type

    If you enter an ingest domain name in the Domain Name field, then select Ingest Domain Name for Domain Type.

  4. Click OK.

    A domain name whose Status is Configuring is displayed in the domain name list. About 3 to 5 minutes later, if the status becomes Normal, the domain name has been added.

  5. Repeat step 1 to step 4 to add a streaming domain name.

    After adding the streaming domain name, you need to associate the streaming domain name with the ingest domain name before using Live. For details, see Associating Domain Names.

Associating Domain Names

Associate the ingest domain name with the streaming domain name so that you can push streams and play live video.

  1. Log in to the Live console.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Domains.
  3. Click Manage in the row containing the target streaming domain name. The Basic Info page is displayed.
  4. In the Ingest Information area, click Associate Ingest Domain and select the added ingest domain name.

  5. Click OK.

    Then you can view the stream push information in the Ingest Information area.

Configuring CNAME Records

Huawei Cloud Live assigns a CNAME value to your ingest domain name and streaming domain name, respectively. You need to add this CNAME value to your domain's DNS records. After CNAME records take effect, all requests for your ingest domain name and streaming domain name are redirected to CDN nodes of Huawei Cloud Live for faster content distribution.

You can log in to the Live console and obtain the CNAME values of the ingest domain name and streaming domain name as described in the following figure on the Domains page. For details about how to configure CNAME records, see Configuring CNAME Records.
