The API supports access from either a nearby region (at lighthouse.tencentcloudapi.com) or a specified region (at lighthouse.ap-guangzhou.tencentcloudapi.com for Guangzhou, for example).
We recommend using the domain name to access the nearest server. When you call an API, the request is automatically resolved to a server in the region nearest to the location where the API is initiated. For example, when you initiate an API request in Guangzhou, this domain name is automatically resolved to a Guangzhou server, the result is the same as that of specifying the region in the domain like "lighthouse.ap-guangzhou.tencentcloudapi.com".
Note: For latency-sensitive businesses, we recommend that you specify the region in the domain name.
