Can somebody please explain the steps to deploy a domain on alibaba cloud.

@mayukh45, you have to create an A record for the domain you have purchaced, which should point to the Public IP address of the Elastic Compute Instance. After some time, the change will propagate to the other DNS resolvers and your domain will start directing browsers/http clients to your Elastic Compute instance.

  1. Set the firewall rules from the Security Group settings of the instance to allow access on port 80 or 443 if you’re going to use https
  2. Install a port 80 handler service (commonly, server) in your instance
  3. Set the A/CNAME record of your domain to point to the public IP of your instance
