Domains

Domains is part of Azion’s Real-Time Manager (RTM) platform. This functionality provides a domain generation service. With it, you can create a domain with an SSL certificate, provided by Azion, at no additional cost. This step is part of the process of creating an Edge Application in RTM. Domains is also available in a staging environment.

You can use the Azion API to automate domain creation and configuration.

  3. CNAME
  4. Digital Certificates
  5. Support for Mutual Transport Layer Security (mTLS)
  6. Setting up domains
  7. Deleting domains

1. How it works

Domains is a standard feature available for all Edge Applications on Azion. When you create an Edge Application in RTM, you must go to Domains, configure, and connect it to an Edge Application. If you wish, you can use it to deliver your content over HTTPS, avoiding SSL certificate issuance costs, or use the domain provided by Azion.


2. Environment

Before going operational, you can activate a testing configuration to preview setups. When creating a new Domain, select the Environment type in the Settings > Environment section:

  • Production: select this Environment to start operating, making the Domain available in production.

  • Preview: choose this Environment to create a Domain for testing. This configuration won’t impact the Production environment.

When selecting the Production environment, you’ll receive a domain name xxxx.map.azionedge.net. When selecting the Preview environment, you’ll receive a domain name xxxx.preview.azionedge.net.

To enable the Preview environment selection, contact our Sales Team.


3. CNAME

CNAME is the standard service responsible for creating CNAME settings, making it possible to replace the domains within Azion. This configuration is also located in Domains. Once you add a domain, the switch for CNAME Access only will be enabled automatically. You may disable it, if desired.


4. Digital Certificates

To use your domain in HTTPS, you’ll need your SSL Certificate (X.509). You may, without additional costs, include your SSL Certificates in RTM.

Find out more about Digital Certificates.


5. Support for Mutual Transport Layer Security (mTLS)

Azion’s Domains also have Support for Mutual Transport Layer Security (mTLS), an authentication method for users and visitors that validates the digital certificate on both sides of a request, client, and edge (server). Adding support for mTLS to your Edge Application ensures a more secure TLS/SSL handshake and is an Open Banking requirement.

Tip: you may need mTLS if your Edge Application deals with financial services and payments.

To enable this feature, contact our Sales Team.

6. Setting up

To configure a domain, follow the steps below:

  1. Access RTM.
  2. On the upper-left corner of the page, select Products Menu > Domains. The Domains page will open.
  3. Click the Add Domain button.
  4. On the Domains section, enter a name for your domain in the Add Configuration Name text box.
  5. In the Edge Certificate text box, enter a domain provided by Azion or use a custom configuration of your choice.
  6. In the CNAME text box, list the domains you want to use as the URL for your files. Use new lines to separate the URLs.
  7. Make sure the CNAME Access Only switch is enabled so that the content is only accessed by the URLs listed in the CNAME field. It should be enabled automatically.
  8. From the Edge Application dropdown list, select the application that will receive the domain.
  9. Enable or disable the switch to enable or disable the domain.
  10. Click the Save button to save the settings.

7. Deleting Domains

To delete a Domain, proceed with the following steps:

  1. Access RTM.
  2. On the upper-left corner of the page, select Products Menu > Domains. The Domains page will open.
  3. Hover over the domain you want to delete and, at the right end of the line, click on the icon represented by a trash can. A confirmation window will open.
  4. Confirm by typing the word delete in the text box.
  5. Click the Delete button.
