Description

CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS



[0001] The present disclosure refers to Chinese Patent Application No.201910164233.8, titled "METHOD FOR ACQUIRING RESOURCE, METHOD FOR RETURNING RESOURCE, SERVER, AND STORAGE MEDIUM", filed March 5, 2019, which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present disclosure relates to Internet technologies and in particular to a method for acquiring a resource, a method for returning a resource, a server and a storage medium.

BACKGROUND



[0003] At present, Internet technology has been widely used, and the Internet protocol used in the process of the Internet communication is still in a low version stage, that is, Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4). When upgrading the Internet protocol from IPv4 to the Internet protocol with a higher version, i.e. Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6), it is necessary to use both protocols at the same time for a period of time based on a stepwise and steady developmental principle. During this period, the Internet protocol may gradually evolve from IPv4 to IPv6 by using transition technology.

[0004] There are many resources in a web interface of the Internet, such as hyper text markup language (HTML) files, javascript (JS) files, cascading style sheets (CSS) files and the like. There are various link addresses in such resource files, and the link address may be represented by a relative path or an absolute path. Herein, the link address represented by the relative path belongs to a local domain address and is called as a local domain link address, and the link address represented by the absolute path is classified into a local domain link address and a non-local domain link address according to the domain name to which the link address belongs. And the non-local domain link address therein is the link address that is represented by the absolute path and does not belong to the local domain. For example, if a domain name address corresponding to website A is "www.abc.com" and a domain name address corresponding to website B is "www.dfg.net", the domain corresponding to website A is not the same as the domain corresponding to website B, and the domain name address corresponding to website A is the non-local domain link address with respect to the domain name address corresponding to website B. IPv4/IPv6 dual stack has already been supported in the traditional content delivery network (CDN), and if a client needs the whole website to be able to support the IPv6 protocol, the upgrade of the network protocol from IPv4 to IPv6 may be realized simply by accessing the client's website to the CDN.

[0005] The inventor finds that the existing technology at least has the following problems. The traditional CDN only supports the coverage of dual stack of the local domain link address but fails to cover the non-local domain link address. If the non-local domain link address is widely used in a website and the website supports IPv6 for communication, most resources may be inaccessible, thus resulting in abnormal web page display.

SUMMARY



[0006] The object of embodiments of the present disclosure is to provide a method for acquiring a resource, a method for returning a resource, a server and a storage medium to solve the problem of abnormal web page display caused by the inability to access a web page with a non-local domain link address in a website supporting IPv6.

[0007] In order to solve the above technical problems, an embodiment of the present disclosure provides a method for acquiring a resource, applied to a rewrite server, which includes the following steps: receiving a resource request message sent by a content delivery network server based on a first Internet protocol, where the resource request message includes a domain name address of the resource that is requested; determining that the domain name address belongs to a preset domain name, then decoding the domain name address to obtain an original domain name address, where the original domain name address is used to access a resource server supporting a second Internet protocol; and acquiring the resource from the resource server based on the original domain name address.

[0015] In one embodiment, the resource request message further includes an Internet protocol address and a port number of the resource server.

[0016] In this embodiment, the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested may be accessed and the resource that is requested may be obtained through the Internet protocol address and port number of the resource server included in the resource request message.

[0017] In one embodiment, decoding the domain name address to obtain the original domain name address includes: replacing a special character in the domain name address with a dot separator, where the special character is any character in a set of characters allowed by an international domain name other than the dot separator; and determining the original domain name address according to a replaced domain name address and the preset domain name.

[0018] In this embodiment, the special character in the domain name address is replaced by the dot separator, and the domain name address in which the special character has been replaced is combined with the preset domain name to obtain the original domain name address. The resource required by the client is obtained from the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested according to the original domain name address, so that the client in an IPv6 environment may access the resource that is not in the same domain as the client, thus bringing good customer experience to customers.

[0019] In one embodiment, determining the original domain name address according to the replaced domain name address and the preset domain name includes: deleting the preset domain name contained in the replaced domain name address to obtain the original domain name address.

[0034] The following embodiments are divided for the convenience of description and shall not constitute any limitation to specific implementations of the present disclosure. Each embodiment may be combined and referred to each other on the premise of no contradiction.

[0035] The terms "first", "second" in the description, claims, and the above drawings in the present disclosure are used to distinguish similar objects, and need not to be used to describe a particular sequence or an order of precedence. It should be appreciated that the data used in this way may be interchanged where appropriate so that the embodiments described here may be implemented in a sequence other than what is illustrated or described here. Besides, the terms "include", "comprise" or "have" and any variants thereof aim to cover non-exclusive inclusions. For example, processes, methods, systems, products, or devices that contain a series of steps or units need not to be limited to those clearly-listed steps or units, but may include other steps or units that are nor clearly listed or inherent to these processes, methods, products, or devices.

[0036] A first embodiment of the present disclosure relates to a method for acquiring a resource. By introducing a rewrite server between a CDN server and a resource server, a domain name address of the resource requested by a client which belongs to a preset domain name may be directed to the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested through the rewrite server, without changing a function of each of internal nodes in a CDN network or changing the way the resource server processes contents of a page file. In this case, resources that are not in the same domain may be accessed by the client, thereby improving the customer experience, reducing the cost, and upgrading the Internet communication protocol supported by the website.

[0037] The implementation details of the method for acquiring the resource in this embodiment are described in detail below, and the following contents are just for the convenience of understanding the implementation details of the solution and not necessary for the implementation of the solution.

[0038] FIG. 1 shows a flowchart of the method acquiring the resource in this embodiment, which may be applied to the rewrite server. The method may include the following steps.

[0039] In step 101, a resource request message sent by a content delivery network server based on a first Internet protocol is received.

[0040] Herein, the resource request message includes the domain name address of the resource that is requested, as well as an Internet protocol address and a port number of the resource server; the domain name address of the resource belongs to a white list, and the white list includes a preset domain name supporting domain name conversion.

[0041] In a specific implementation, the white list may be the domain name address corresponding to the website served by the CDN, or may be the domain name address which opens a rewrite function corresponding to the rewrite server in the CDN. For example, a website address of a network company A is "www.asdf.com" and the network company A opens the rewrite function corresponding to the rewrite server in the CDN, then the website address "www.asdf.com" of the network company A may be added to the white list.

[0042] In a specific implementation, the client accesses a web page of the website and sends the resource request message to the content delivery network (CDN) server to obtain the resource that is requested in the web page of the website. The CDN server receives the resource request message sent by the client. For example, the resource request message is a hyper text transport protocol (HTTP) request message. The CDN server judges whether a HOST address carried in the HTTP request message is included in the white list. If the CDN server determines that the HOST address is included in the white list and a network environment where the client is located supports the first Internet protocol, for example, if the client supports IPv6, the CDN server may forward the HTTP request message to the rewrite server. Herein, the HTTP request message includes an Internet protocol (IP) address and a port number of the resource server to facilitate the rewrite server back to the source, that is, return to the resource server to obtain the resource that is requested according to the IP address and the port number of the resource server. For example, the IP address of the resource server is 192.168.1.2 and the port number is 5500, then the rewrite server may access the resource server corresponding to the address "192.168.1.2:5500" to obtain the resource required by the client. If the CDN server determines that the HOST address is not in the white list, the HTTP request message may back to the source in a normal way.

[0043] It should be noted that the web page of the website accessed by the client includes various resources, and the resources may be HTML files, JS script files, CSS files, or the like, which are not limited here and are specifically determined depends on corresponding website contents.

[0044] In a specific implementation, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol certificate of a domain name address is configured on CDN server, and the SSL protocol certificate supports the formats of HTTP and the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer (HTTPS).

[0045] In step 102, if it is determined that the domain name address belongs to the preset domain name, the domain name address is decoded to obtain an original domain name address.

[0046] In a specific implementation, the rewrite server judges whether the HOST address carried in the HTTP request message belongs to the preset domain name after receiving the HTTP request, and the preset domain name is an extensive domain name set in advance. For example, an independent domain name "abc.com" is applied for in advance; the extensive domain name "*.abc.com" corresponding to the independent domain name "abc.com" is acquired to enable all domain addresses belonging to the extensive domain name to be directed to the rewrite server, so as to acquire the resource that is requested through the rewrite server; the rewrite server decodes the HOST address in the HTTP request message and restores the HOST address to the original domain name address if the HOST address carried in the HTTP request message matches the preset domain name.

[0047] It should be noted that the original domain name address is used to access the resource server supporting a second Internet protocol, and a version of the first Internet protocol is higher than that of the second Internet protocol. For example, the first Internet protocol is IPv6, and the first Internet protocol is IPv4.

[0048] In step 103, the resource is obtained from the resource server according to the original domain name address.

[0049] In a specific implementation, the rewrite server accesses the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested according to the original domain name address after obtaining the original domain name address by decoding, and the resource server returns the resource required by the rewrite server to the rewriting server, so that the rewrite server may obtain the resource.

[0050] In this embodiment, by introducing the rewrite server between the CDN server and the resource server, the domain name address of the resource requested by the client which belongs to the preset domain name may be directed to the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested through the rewrite server, without changing a function of each of internal nodes in the CDN network or changing the way the resource server processes contents of a page file. In this case, resources that are not in the same domain may be accessed by the client, thereby improving the customer experience, reducing the cost, and upgrading Internet communication protocol supported by the website.

[0051] A second embodiment of the present disclosure relates to a method for acquiring a resource. The second embodiment is substantially the same as the first embodiment, and the main differences are as follows. That is, a special character in a domain name address is replaced with a dot separator, and an original domain name address is determined according to a replaced domain name address and a preset domain name.

[0052] A specific processing flow is shown in FIG. 2. In this embodiment, the method for acquiring the resource includes steps 201 to 204. Since step 201 in this embodiment is the same as step 101 in the first embodiment and step 204 in this embodiment is the same as step 103 in the first embodiment, the details are not repeated here and steps 202 to 203 in this embodiment may be described below in detail.

[0053] In step 202, if it is determined that the domain name address belongs to the preset domain name, the special character in the domain name address is replaced with the dot separator.

[0054] It should be noted that the domain name address is an encoded domain name address of the resource to be requested, and the special character is any character in a set of characters allowed by an international domain name other than the dot separator.

[0055] In a specific implementation, the dot separator "." is used to replace the special character in the encoded domain name address, such as "---". Then, if the encoded domain name address is "https://www---aaa---com.abc.com/l.js", the replaced domain name address is "https://www.aaa.com.abc.com/1js". It should be noted that the special character may also be any character in the set of characters allowed by the international domain name other than the dot separator ".".

[0056] In step 203, the original domain name address is determined according to the replaced domain name address and the preset domain name.

[0057] In a specific implementation, the original domain name address is obtained by deleting the preset domain name contained in the replaced domain name address. For example, if the replaced domain name address is "https:// www.aaa.com.abc.com/l.js" and it is determined that the preset domain name is "abc.com", the original domain name address "https:// www.aaa.com1.js" may be obtained by deleting the preset domain name "abc.com" in the replaced domain name address.

[0058] In this embodiment, the special character in the encoded domain name address is replaced with the dot separator and the preset domain name therein is deleted, so as to obtain the original domain name address, restore the encoded domain name address, and enable the rewrite server to obtain the resource required by the client from the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested according to the original domain name address that is restored. In this case, the client in an IPv6 environment may access the resource that is not in the same domain as the client, thus bringing good customer experience to customers.

[0059] A third embodiment of the present disclosure relates to a method for returning a resource. FIG.3 shows a flowchart of the method for returning the resource in this embodiment. The method may be applied to a rewrite server, which includes the following steps.

[0060] In step 301, a response message returned by a resource server is received.

[0061] The response message carries the resource obtained according to a first domain name address.

[0062] In a specific implementation, the rewrite server sends the resource request message to the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested according to the first domain name address. The resource server returns the response message corresponding to the resource request message after receiving the resource request message sent by the rewriting server. The response message carries the resource that is requested, and the resource may be HTML files, JS script files, CSS files, or the like, which are not limited here and are specifically determined depends on corresponding website contents.

[0063] In step 302, a second domain name address in the resource is encoded to obtain an encoded domain name address.

[0064] The first domain name address and the second domain name address do not belong to the same domain, and the encoded domain name address belongs to a preset domain name.

[0065] It should be noted that the first domain name address is used to access the resource server supporting a first Internet protocol, the second domain name address is used to access the resource server supporting a second Internet protocol, and a version of the first Internet protocol is higher than that of the second Internet protocol. For example, the first Internet protocol is IPv6, and the second Internet protocol is IPv4.

[0066] In a specific implementation, the following method is used to encode the second domain name address in the resource. A dot separator in the second domain name address is replaced with a special character to obtain a replaced domain name address, and the special character is any character in a set of characters allowed by an international domain name other than the dot separator. An encoded domain name address is determined according to the replaced domain name address and the preset domain name.

[0067] Herein, the replaced domain name address includes a replaced prefix and original path information. The replaced domain name address and the preset domain name are superposed to obtain the encoded domain name address. The encoded domain name address is the replaced prefix, the preset domain name and the original path information in sequence.

[0068] For example, the second domain name address in the resource is "https://www.aaa.com/1.js", and the special character is "---". The dot separator "." therein is replaced with the special character "---", then the second domain name address that is replaced is "https://www---aaa---com/1.js". Herein, "www---aaa---com" represents the replaced prefix, and "/1.js" represents the original path information. Then the second domain name address that is replaced "https://www---aaa---com/1.js" is superposed with the preset domain name "abc.com" to get the encoded domain name address "https://www---aaa---com.abc.com/1.js". The special character may also be any character in the set of characters allowed by the international domain name other than the dot separator ".".

[0069] In step 303, the resource is updated according to the encoded domain name address, and the resource that is updated is returned to a client through a content delivery network server.

[0070] In a specific implementation, the encoded domain name address is used to replace the second domain name address in the resource to obtain the resource that is updated. For example, the encoded domain name address is "https://www--aaa--com.abc.com/1.js", while the second domain name address in the resource is "https://www.aaa.com/1.js", then the domain name address "https://www--aaa--com.abc.com/1.js" is used to replace the domain name address "https://www.aaa.com/1.js", thus obtaining the resource that is updated. It should be noted that the resource includes more than one second domain name address, possibly two, three or even more. As long as all second domain name addresses included in the resource are replaced with encoded domain name addresses corresponding to all the second domain name addresses, the resource that is updated may be obtained. Then the resource that is updated is returned to the client through the CDN server, thus enabling the client to obtain the required resource. Besides, the second domain name addresses included in the resource are all accessible through the CDN server and the rewrite server.

[0071] In this embodiment, by introducing the rewrite server between the CDN server and the resource server, the domain name address of the resource requested by the client which belongs to the preset domain name may be directed to the resource server corresponding to the resource that is requested through the rewrite server, without changing a function of each of internal nodes in the CDN network or changing the way the resource server processes contents of a page file. In this case, resources that are not in the same domain may be accessed by the client, thereby improving the customer experience, reducing the cost, and upgrading the Internet communication protocol supported by the website.

[0072] A fourth embodiment of the present disclosure relates to a method for returning a resource. The fourth embodiment is substantially the same as the third embodiment, and the main differences are as follows. A second domain name address in the resource is encoded after a response message returned by a resource server is received. And before an encoded domain name address is obtained, it is also needed to determine that a type of the resource is a text-type and scan the resource of the text-type to determine that the resource includes the second domain name address.

[0073] A specific processing flow is shown in FIG. 4. In this embodiment, the method for returning the resource includes steps 401 to 405. Herein, step 401 is the same as step 301 in the third embodiment and step 404 to 405 is the same as step 302 to 303 in the third embodiment, the details are not repeated here and steps 402 to 403 in this embodiment may be described below in detail.

[0074] In step 402, the type of the resource is determined as the text-type according to a type identification of the resource carried in the response message. It should be noted that the resource carried in the response message may be various types of resources, such as text files, image resources, or the like. The type of the resource may be determined according to the type identification of the resource carried in the response message. For example, the type identification of the resource carried in a message header of the response message is a "content-type". The text-type is set as text/html, application/javascript, or text/css, and an image-type is set as image/jpeg. If the content-type is equal to text/html, application/javascript, or text/css, the type of the resource is the text file.

[0075] In step 403, the resource is scanned to determine that the resource includes the second domain name address.

[0076] In a specific implementation, if it is determined that the type of the resource is the text-type, the resource is scanned with a regular expression. If it is determined that a string in the resource matches the regular expression, it is determined that the resource includes the second domain name address. Herein, the regular expression is a preset string with a characteristic of the second domain name address.

[0077] For example, the regular expression is set as "http://*.aaa.com", and then strings in the resource of the text-type are sequentially extracted. If an extracted string matches the regular expression, that is, the extracted string includes the string ".aaa.com" with the characteristic of the second domain name address, it means that the extracted string belongs to the second domain name address and it is determined that the resource of the text-type includes the second domain name address.

[0078] In this implementation method, it is determined that the resource of the text-type includes the second domain name address by scanning the resource of the text-type with the regular expression. Then the second domain name address is encoded, and the encoded domain name address is used to replace the second domain name address corresponding to the encoded domain name address. The resource that is updated is returned to the client in a first Internet protocol environment, so that the client may access the resource of the resource server that supports a second Internet protocol and is not in the same domain as the client, thus bringing good customer experience to customers.

[0079] The steps of various methods described above are divided for clear description only, which may be combined into one step or some of which may be divided into several steps during implementation. These steps are all included in the protection scope of the present disclosure as long as they include the same logical relationship. The core designs, in which insignificant modifications are added or insignificant designs are introduced to an algorithm or a process without changing the algorithm and the process, are all within the protection scope of the present disclosure.

[0080] A fifth embodiment of the present disclosure provides an Internet topology. As shown in FiG.5, the Internet topology includes a client 501, a CDN server 502, a rewrite server 503 and a resource server 504. The flows shown in FiG.6 are used to obtain a resource requested by the client 501.

[0081] In step 601, the client 501 sends a HTTP request message to the CDN server 502.

[0082] The HTTP request message is used to request access to a web page of a website.

[0083] In step 602, the CDN server 502 judges whether a white list includes a HOST address carried in the HTTP request message, and the client 501 is in an IPv6 network environment. If it is determined that the HOST address is in the white list and the client 501 supports IPv6, step 603 may be performed; otherwise, step 612 may be performed.

[0084] In step 603, the CDN server 502 forwards the HTTP request message to the rewrite server 503.

[0085] The HTTP request message includes an IP address and a port number of the resource server 504 to facilitate the rewrite server 503 to back to the source.

[0086] In step 604, the rewrite server 503 judges whether a domain name address carried in a resource request message is an extensive domain name that is encoded. If so, step 606 may be performed; otherwise, step 605 may be performed.

[0087] In step 605, the rewrite server 503 decodes the domain name address carried in the resource request message, obtains an original domain name address corresponding to the domain name address, and accesses the resource server 504 corresponding to the resource that is requested according to the original domain name address.

[0088] In step 606, the IP address and the port number of the resource server 504 included in the HTTP request message are obtained to access the resource server 504.

[0089] It should be noted that the resource server 504 is in an IPv4 network environment and is not in the same domain as the client 501.

[0090] In step 607, the resource server 504 receives the HTTP request message and returns a response message to the rewrite server 503.

[0091] The response message includes the resource that is requested.

[0092] In step 608, the rewrite server 503 judges whether a type of the resource in the response message is a text-type. If so, step 610 may be performed; otherwise, step 609 may be performed.

[0093] In step 609, the rewrite server 503 returns the resource to the CDN server 502.

[0094] In step 610, the rewrite server 503 scans a full text of a resource file with a regular expression to determine that the resource file includes a non-local domain link address, and encodes the non-local domain link address.

[0095] After the scan of the resource file is completed, the rewrite server 503 obtains all non-local domain link addresses included in the resource file and encodes each of the non-local domain link addresses.

[0096] In step 611, the rewrite server 503 uses an encoded domain name address to replace the non-local domain link address in the resource to obtain the resource that is updated, and sends the resource that is updated to the CDN server 502.

[0097] In step 612, the CDN server 502 receives the resource returned by the rewrite server 503 and returns the resource to the client 501.

[0098] In this embodiment, the rewrite server is introduced between the CDN server and the resource server without changing a function of each of internal nodes in the CDN network or changing the way the resource server processes contents of a page file. Compared with a traditional CDN modification solution, the cost may be reduced so that the website may be upgraded from IPv4 to IPv6.
