Referer Access Policy: control access to content for specified domain names

Referer Access Policy is a restriction to publish the links to content on your site on other sites. To enable the option navigate to CDN Resources, click Settings of the Resource, choose the Advanced Settings tab, in the Access (Security) click Add Policy and find Referer Access Policy.

By default, there are no restrictions by referer to your CDN Resource. You can set up Allow or Block Policy.

When a user requests data from specified domains, they will get the denial of access.
