Welcome to Property Manager

Property Manager is a configuration tool that you use in conjunction with several ​Akamai​ products to deliver your web-based content via the ​Akamai​ edge network. You'll use it to set up a property to determine several things, including:

  • An edge hostname. You'll associate your domain name with an "Akamaized" version of it. As users access your domain, their requests are resolved to the edge hostname to access the ​Akamai​ edge network and review this property.
  • Traffic and security options. To help direct and protect your content.
  • Business rules. These rules tell the edge network servers how to handle and distribute the content retrieved from your origin server.


Feature availability

The features and options that are available for you to configure in Property Manager depend on the product you purchased and additional modules. This online help might sometimes refer to the solutions you can't see in the Property Manager interface.
