Welcome to Property Manager

Property Manager is a configuration tool that you use with other ​Akamai Technologies, Inc.​ products to start serving the traffic to your site or application through the ​Akamai​ edge network. In Property Manager, you determine:

  • An edge hostname. This is the ​Akamai​-generated hostname that you assign to your domain so that the users' requests are resolved to the ​Akamai​ edge network. See Key concepts and terms for a detailed explanation of how edge hostnames work.
  • 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.
