Web Hosting for Economy, Data center US West 1 and Hongkong , Linux OS for 1 year is $70.8 USD, when I check this link:


https://ews.console.aliyun.com/buy.vm?spm=5176.8827884.105.1.36d259ceyRvO3Q&file=buy.vm


But from Web Hosting, Price Overview, it is showing $11.88 for 1 year. Renewing the instance costs $70.8, post expiry.
Is this the correct amount post 1 year subscription?

$70.8 is on the higher side. Other vendors with cPanel etc are charging less.

I read this transfer document detailing the steps:

It can be tricky as the old registrar may not like it and wants to retain :)

Another missing part of the information, If you use ECS, it is completely your instance while as using the webhosting is shared and comes with limitations as mentioned below.

You can connect to a Web Hosting instance only through FTP, and you can only manage files of the website deployed on the instance. You cannot connect to or manage a Web Hosting instance through SSH.

A Web Hosting instance can process a maximum of 1,000 access requests per second (1000 QPS) ; otherwise, the performance of the Web Hosting instance may be affected.

Other operations that affect the server and overall network stability are restricted, such as running programs or scripts that occupy a large amount of resources on Web Hosting instances.

Only access of PHP files and static webpages are supported.

A maximum of 200,000 files and folders are allowed for each FTP site

@Raja_KT

You can setup an ECS instance to host many websites.
In fact, you do not need an cPanel.

Do contact me if you need help.

Thanks Ankit, Hanneng . Being very comfortable with cPanel, hesitant. Also the cost is on the higher side with ECS for static pages. But I see lightsail, Linode, Digitalocean etc when I evaluated  last year or 2 years back , they are on the higher side :).

I am almost sure, it must be pretty easier with Alibaba Web Hosting console , but have not ventured out with the features provided by GoDaddy. My friends are also asking the same thing, since I am doing it.
