You can renew subscription clusters to prolong their subscription periods. The renewal fee is the same as that of a newly purchased cluster. Pay-as-you-go clusters are billed based on the actual usage and do not expire. You do not need to renew pay-as-you-go clusters. You need only to make sure that you have sufficient balance in your Alibaba Cloud account.

Note
  • We recommend that you enable auto-renewal to prevent service interruptions caused if the cluster expires and is not renewed in time.
  • If a subscription cluster contains the pay-as-you-go billing method, you must make sure that you have sufficient balance in your Alibaba Cloud account.

Usage notes

  • If you manually renew the subscription of the cluster before the automatic fee deduction, the system automatically renews the subscription of the cluster next time before the cluster expires.
  • After you enable auto-renewal, the configuration takes effect the next day. If your cluster expires the next day, you must manually renew the subscription of the cluster to avoid service interruptions.
