This topic describes how to create an Internet-facing Classic Load Balancer (CLB) instance.
- Create a CLB instance
A CLB instance is a running entity that provides the CLB service.
- Configure a CLB instance
After you create a CLB instance, you must add listeners and backend servers.
- Configure a CNAME record (optional)
Use Alibaba Cloud DNS to resolve a domain name to the IP address of the CLB instance. Then, the CLB instance can provide external services.
- Release an SLB instance
If a CLB instance is no longer needed, delete the instance to avoid unexpected fees.
