Copying Domain Configuration to New Domains

You can add new domain names to CDN and copy the configuration of an existing domain name to these names.


You can copy the configuration of an existing domain name to one or more new domain names, allowing you to quickly add and customize domain names.


  • You can copy the configuration of a domain name in the Enabled, Disabled, or Rejected state.
  • If a domain name is in the Deleting, Configuring, Reviewing, Error state, its configuration cannot be copied.
  • The configuration of a banned domain name cannot be copied.
  • You can add up to 10 domain names at a time. New domain names occupy your domain quota.
  • Some configuration items can be copied. For details, see Configuration Items That Can Be Copied.
  • Special configuration items set in the backend cannot be copied. If the source domain name has such items, new domain names cannot be added.
  • The domain name status cannot be copied.
  • An HTTPS certificate is bound to a domain name. The binding relationship cannot be copied.
  • After the copy, you can check whether each configuration item of the new domain names matches your services to prevent services from being affected by improper configuration.

Origin server settings

  • The host is also copied. The rules are as follows:
    • If the origin server of the source domain name is an IP address or domain name and a custom host is set, new domain names use this custom host.
    • If the origin server of the source domain name is an IP address or domain name and the host is the source domain name, new domain names use themselves as the host.
    • If the origin server of the source domain name is an OBS bucket, new domain names use the same host as the source domain name.
