ApsaraDB RDS supports two types of endpoints: internal endpoints and public endpoints. By default, you are provided with an internal endpoint that is used to connect to your ApsaraDB RDS for MariaDB instance. If you want to connect to your RDS instance over the Internet, you must apply for a public endpoint.
