You can delete any Alibaba Cloud ECS instance by releasing it from the console/dashboard to save cost if you no longer need it.

You can either release the instance immediately or schedule it to be released on a particular date.

Once you release the Alibaba Cloud ECS instance, you can’t recover its data.

First, navigate to the list of ECS instances that you have and make sure you have selected the appropriate region at the top.

Then find the instance that you want to release. In the Actions column, select Manage then Release

First of all, you need to stop your instance first.
Second you need to release your instance in order to avoid further payment.
if you instance is in subscription mode, you need to stop auto renew first, then the instance will be release before the next renew date.
if your instance is in PAYG, you can release it any time.
