Create nodes

You can create a Content Delivery Network node by using the API.


Configurations that are created for endpoints are not immediately available.

To ensure that the custom domain name and ICP number that you entered match and are valid, you must first review them. This process can take up to one business day to complete. If the details do not pass the Internet Content Provider (ICP) review, delete the Content Delivery Network endpoint you created, and then create a new endpoint by using the correct custom domain name and ICP number. If the details do pass the ICP review, the Content Delivery Network service will be registered within 60 minutes, so that the network can propagate it. At the same time, you must also configure the CNAME mapping details, as indicated by the notifications in the interface, before the cache content can finally be accessed via the custom domain name.
