WebSocket Settings

If you have enabled whole site acceleration in scenarios such as on-screen commenting, collaborative session, market data broadcast, sports live update, online education, and IoT, you can configure WebSocket to implement long-term bidirectional data transmission.


WebSocket is a protocol providing full-duplex communication channels over a single TCP connection. It allows a server to proactively push data to clients, simplifying data exchange between the clients and server. A persistent connection can be established between a browser and the server after one handshake and bidirectional data transmission can be performed, saving server resources and bandwidth.


  • This function applies only to domain names whose service type is whole site acceleration.
  • This function is in OBT and is available for free trial.
  • The maximum timeout interval is 300 seconds. If no message is transferred within the specified interval, the connection is closed.
  • WebSocket cannot be configured for domain names with special configurations.
  • Do not enable both WebSocket and HTTP/2. Otherwise, your domain name cannot be accessed.
