Solution

First seven days after an instance expires or is overdue

The instance is frozen and cannot provide services.

Eighth day after an instance expires or is overdue

The instance is automatically released on the eighth day after the instance expires. The data in the instance is cleared.

You cannot recover the instance.

Note: During the smart recommendation instance service period, in order to avoid restrictions on the use of elastic QPS, you need to ensure that your Alibaba Cloud account balance is sufficient.

Suggestions

  • To avoid possible service interruptions caused by overdue payments, we recommend that you manually renew the instance before it expires or enable auto-renewal.

  • Make sure that your Alibaba Cloud account has sufficient balance.
