Elastic IP Addresses (EIPs) are charged with the traffic-based billing method of Pay-As-You-Go. This topic describes the billing method of EIPs.
The total fees of an EIP include a configuration fee and a traffic fee. EIPs are billed and charged on an hourly basis. Billing periods less than an hour are calculated as an hour.
- Configuration fee = unit price (USD/hour) × usage period
The usage period refers to the period between the time when the EIP is created and the time when the EIP is released.
- Traffic fee = unit price (USD/GB) × charged traffic
The charged traffic refers to the cumulative outbound traffic of the EIP to be billed in an hour.
|Region||Configuration fee (USD/hour)||Traffic fee (USD/GB)|
|China (Hangzhou), China (Shanghai), China (Beijing), China (Zhangjiakou), China (Shenzhen), China (Hohhot)||0.003||0.123|
|China (Hong Kong)||0.009||0.153|
|US (Silicon Valley)||0.005||0.077|
|Germany (Frankfurt), UK (London)||0.006||0.070|
|Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)||0.003||0.077|
|Indonesia (Jakarta), India (Mumbai)||0.006||0.090|
- Assume that you created an EIP in the China (Hangzhou) region at 9:30 of one day and set the peak bandwidth to 10 Mbit/s.
- Then you immediately associated this EIP with an ECS instance and used the EIP to access the service deployed on the EC instance.
- Assume that you changed the EIP bandwidth twice that day:
- At 17:00, you changed the bandwidth from 10 Mbit/s to 20 Mbit/s.
- At 23:00, you changed the bandwidth from 20 Mbit/s to 15 Mbit/s.
- Configuration fee:
No EIP configuration fee is charged. This is because the EIP is associated with an ECS instance of the VPC network.
- Traffic fee:
- The total traffic consumed by the EIP that day is 60 GB.
- The unit price of the traffic fee in the China (Hangzhou) region is USD 0.125 per GB.
- The traffic fee is calculated through the following formula: 0.125 USD/GB × 60 GB = USD 7.5.
