A property hostname's state identifies its condition during deployment. A property hostname's status identifies the progress of its provision state change.

When you provision your property hostname on China CDN, you're requesting approval from Akamai's China partners to deploy your website on a China server. For example, to begin deploying your website in China, you Create a new provision state change and set your property hostname's targetState object member value to WHITELISTED. The API sends an approval request to the China partners. As the property hostname cycles through the China partners' approval process, the currentStatus object member changes from PENDING, then to COMPLETED or REJECTED depending on the partners' approval. After your property hostname is mapped to the provided edge hostname on China CDN, the property hostname's provisionState object member value is PROVISIONED. This indicates that your website is activated and China CDN is directing your web traffic in China.
