You can configure auto-renewal when you purchase a dedicated host or an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance. You can also manually renew the dedicated host or ECS instance later. This topic describes how to renew a dedicated host and an ECS instance.
After a dedicated host expires, it is automatically shut down. The dedicated host enters the Stopped state, which lasts for 15 days. During this period, your data on the dedicated host is retained. To start the dedicated host, you only need to renew it. If you do not renew the dedicated host within 15 days, it is released and your data cannot be retrieved.
For information about expiration or overdue payments, see Expiration and overdue payments.
