Akamai uses the origin record, also called an address record or A record, to find your origin server. When you create DNS record for your origin, you're telling the Akamai intelligent edge network where your content originates.
- On your authoritative name server, create an A record that associates each of your hostnames with your origin server hostname.
- Make sure your production content hostname's IP address exactly matches the origin server hostname's address.
For example, before adding the origin record, your DNS record might look like this:
www.my-application.com . IN A 10.10.0.1
After adding the origin record, it might look like this:
www.my-application.com . IN A 10.10.0.1 demo-www.my-application.com . IN A 10.10.0.1
The exact process depends on the service you're using to register your domains. If you require assistance, contact your registrar.
