Step 1: Register Your Account

First, you’ll need to register an account on our Registration Page. After filling out your details and creating your account, you’ll gain access to your personal Cloud Dashboard.

Step 2: Choose Your Cloud Instance

From your Cloud Dashboard, go to the ‘Add VM’ section. Here, you’ll find a variety of cloud instance options. Select the one that suits your needs. If you need help deciding, our Instance Pricing Guide can guide you.

Step 3: Install Docker

With your cloud instance ready, you can proceed to install Docker. Connect to your instance via SSH and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl gnupg lsb-release
curl -fsSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg
echo \
"deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] \
$(lsb_release -cs) stable"
| sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

This will install Docker on your cloud instance. To verify the installation, type docker --version. You should see the version of Docker that’s been installed.

Step 4: Run Your First Docker Container

Now that Docker is installed, you can run your first Docker container. Let’s run a simple “Hello World” application to test everything is working correctly:

sudo docker run hello-world

You should see a message indicating that your Docker installation is working correctly.


Congratulations! You now have a Docker environment set up on your ServerStadium cloud instance. You’re ready to start deploying applications in Docker containers and leveraging the powerful features of ServerStadium’s cloud instances.
