Deploy a container

After placing an order, the container status will be “Pending”, and the “Deploy” button will appear. Once the container deployment is complete, you won’t be able to deploy the container again. If the service needs to be deployed again, please shut down the container and place another order. Start deploying your container:

  1. Enter the image information. Currently, the supported images can be from dockerhub public, dockerhub private, and GitHub public. dockerhub public image format is: image name :tag '(e.g. nginx:latest). The image format of dockerhub private and GitHub public image format is: account name/image name :tag '. For private images, you need to add the account and password (or assessKey) information. Before deployment, you will need the corresponding warehouse address to access the image. Ensure that the image corresponding to the tag is readable in the image repository.
  2. Click the Deploy button to deploy. The system will review each input before submitting the deployment request.


  • Add ports to add a container and a host port pair (neither the container nor the host port can be empty in a port pair). The number of ports available is displayed, and the number of ports used is indicated under Service Options. The number of container ports ranges from 1 to 65535. Port numbers cannot be reused within a container. The system will check if a host port is occupied in the selected Region.
  • Click on "Environment Variables" to add variables (name and value) to deploy the container.
  • Click on the arrow on the right side of “Advance” to enter the command and argument for container deployment.
