Last Updated: Apr 23, 2021

On the Billing Data tab of the Public DNS page in the Alibaba Cloud DNS console, you can view the usage statistics about the free monthly quota for resolutions. You can view the statistics about the DNS requests over HTTP or HTTPS in the last 90 days at most.

Billing details

Public DNS provides you the free quota for each month. The quota of the resource plan that you purchase is used after you use up the free quota. If the quota of the resource plan is also used up, Public DNS charges you based on the pay-as-you-go billing method.

By default, the Billing Data tab displays the number of DNS requests on the previous day. You can also set a time range to query the number of DNS requests within the time range.
