This feature allows you to deploy issued Alibaba Cloud SSL certificates and uploaded third-party certificates to Alibaba Cloud services in the SSL Certificates Service console console.Based on the new rules, you will be charged for deploying third-party certificates to Alibaba Cloud services.

The change will take effect from May 25, 2021.

The following table describes the detailed billing rules after the change.

CNY 30/deployment

One deployment is counted if you deploy a certificate to a domain name that is associated with an Alibaba Cloud service.

Examples:
  • Assume that you deploy an uploaded third-party certificate to three domain names that are connected to Web Application Firewall (WAF). Then, three deployments are counted and you are charged CNY 90, which is calculated in the following formula: 30 × 3 = 90.
  • Assume that you deploy an uploaded third-party certificate to one domain name that is connected to both WAF and Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium. Then, two deployments are counted and you are charged CNY 60, which is calculated in the following formula: 30 × 2 = 60.
After the preceding billing rules take effect, you click Deploy for an uploaded third-party certificate on the Overview page in the SSL Certificates Service console, as shown in the following figure. Then, the corresponding deployment service order will be generated. You must complete the payment to complete the deployment operation. Deploy an uploaded certificate
