This topic describes how to deploy an expressCart application to Function Compute. Function Compute provides a method different from traditional deployment methods. You can deploy a traditional expressCart application to Function Compute and use the application for production without performing operations such as purchasing a server. The deployed expressCart application can use the auto scaling, pay-as-you-go, and O&M-free features of Function Compute.


The following operations are complete:

After the project is deployed, you can view the temporary domain name generated by Function Compute in the execution output. The temporary domain name can be used to access the newly deployed application. For example, run the following command to access the application:

curl 60657313-188077086902****
Note The temporary domain name is used only for demonstration and development purposes. It is valid for a limited period of time. You must use a domain name that has obtained an Internet Content Provider (ICP) filing from Alibaba Cloud for production. For more information, see Configure a custom domain name.
