The VM we requested from Rapid.Space only have IPv6. Users cannot access it through IPv4. In order to allow this, we need to use Rapid.Space CDN.
There are two options here: "Get Free CDN!" or "Get Free Chinese CDN!". it depends if you need to use frontend outside China or inside China. Both frontend can be used for a service running on a host located inside or outside China. The only thing that matters is if you need your website to be easily accessible from outside China or from inside China. Please note that currently the "Get Free Chinese CDN!" is unavailable yet. so here we take "Get Free CDN!" as an example for accessing outside China.
This action will lead to the configuration page of the frontend.
Please fill the following fields in the configuration page:
All other types can be left blank.
When above configuration is completed, click on the "Proceed" button at the top of the page. The page will go back to the list of services.

Click on the frontend service's title ("Frontend for Nextcloud", for example) to go to the configuration page of the service.

You will access your nextcloud with a warning: Access through untrusted domain.
According the information of the sign, you can go to your config file to add your domain:
cd /var/www/html/nextcloud/config nano config.php
Then add your domain in 'trusted_domains' .
Now you are using Rapid.Space CDN to access Nextcloud.
Please note that this free service has certain limitations:
