Deleting a Domain Name

This section describes how to delete a domain name.

  • If the domain name to be deleted has been connected to WAF, re-resolve it with the DNS provider before you delete it to make it point to the origin server IP address. Otherwise, traffic intended to it will not be directed to the server, affecting access.
  • Deletion takes effect within 1 minute and deleted domain names cannot be recovered. Therefore, exercise caution when deleting a domain name.

Prerequisites

  • Login credentials have been obtained.
  • The domain name to be deleted resolves to the origin server address.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner of the management console and select a region or project.
  3. Choose Security > Web Application Firewall. In the navigation pane, choose Domains. The Domains page is displayed (see Figure 1).

  4. In the row containing the target domain name, choose More > Delete in the Operation column. The Delete Domain dialog box is displayed.

    • For the scenario where no proxy is used, see Figure 2.
      NOTE:
      • After confirmation, select The CNAME of the domain name has been deleted from the DNS provider, and an A-record has been configured to the origin server IP address, or services carried on the domain name have been brought offline..
      • If you want to retain the policy bound to the domain name, select Retain the policy of this domain name.
