Associate a property hostname to an edge hostname

You can associate a property hostname to the edge hostname in Property Manager when you create the OTA Updates property configuration. On the edge network, edge servers read from property configuration files to determine how to distribute content. The association between your property and edge hostnames allows networks to resolve requests for your content. Perform this procedure to configure secure delivery of content over HTTPS with your hostname.

Before you begin, recall the Edge IP Binding (EIB) edge hostname that your account representative provided.

If required, establish an SSL certificate. For more information, see Establish an SSL certificate.
