Background information

When a subscription-based instance expires, you need to renew the subscription to this instance within seven days or re-create the instance within 8 to 15 days. After the grace period, the instance is released and its data is permanently deleted. When renewing the instance, you can change its configuration. The new configuration takes effect in the new billing period. For more information about renewal rules and billing instructions, see Billing items and pricing.
