An endpoint is the URL used to gain access to the Function Compute service. To use the computing resources of Function Compute, you must use your Alibaba Cloud account and the Function Compute endpoint to access Function Compute.

Domain name format

A domain name consists of your Alibaba Cloud account ID and Endpoints. A domain name is in the format of account_id.service_endpoint.

Assume that your Alibaba Cloud account ID is 16530750. In this case, account_id is 16530750.

If you deploy the Function Compute service in the China (Shanghai) region, service_endpoint is cn-shanghai.fc.aliyuncs.com. In this case, you can use 16530750.cn-shanghai.fc.aliyuncs.com to connect to the Function Compute service in the China (Shanghai) region.

Obtain an Alibaba Cloud account ID

To query your Alibaba Cloud account ID, perform the following steps:

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console.
  2. Click the account in the upper-right corner, such as funCustomer*****@aliyun.com. On the account menu that appears, click Security Settings.
  3. On the Security Settings page, view your Alibaba Cloud account ID.

Endpoints

An endpoint is the URL used to connect to the Function Compute service. Endpoints can be classified into public endpoints and internal endpoints.

  • Public endpoints

    Bandwidth fees will be incurred for data transmission over the Internet. For more information about the fees, see Billing. The following table lists the regions where the Function Compute service is available and endpoints that allow you to gain access to the Function Compute service as required.

  • Internal endpoints

    High-speed internal networks have been created between Alibaba Cloud services in all regions to provide a gigabit shared bandwidth. These services include Function Compute, Elastic Compute Service (ECS), ApsaraDB for RDS (RDS), Server Load Balancer (SLB), and Object Storage Service (OSS). You can use internal endpoints to connect the Alibaba Cloud services. If your data needs to be transmitted between different services in the same region, we recommend that you use one of the following internal endpoints for connection to avoid consuming public traffic.
