Taking A Container Public


So far we've covered providers, servers, images, environments, and containers. However, most workloads(especially API's and websites) want access to public networking. In the following section we'll:

  1. Configure DNS - A DNS Zone is required for a public container to have an address.
  2. Create A Linked Record - Using Cycle's special Linked record type to associate a domain with a container.
  3. Start A Load Balancer - Make sure our load balancer is online so there is an ingres point for the environment
  4. Configure Ports and Routes - Making sure that the setting on the container config are in line with what you're container is expecting.
