The COS console is the easiest way to work with COS without writing code or programs. You can use COS services with the COS console directly.
If this is your first time using COS, you are advised to learn the following concepts first.
This document describes how to get started and store your data in the cloud using the COS console.
You must register a Tencent Cloud account before using the COS service. To do so, click the button below. Skip this step if you already have an account.
Once registered, use your registered account to log in to the Tencent Cloud console and verify your identity. For detailed instructions, please see Identity Verification Guide.
