Before you use Global Accelerator (GA), you must purchase a GA instance and a basic bandwidth plan. You can purchase a service bundle that is recommended by GA. You can also purchase GA resources based on your requirements.

Purchase a service bundle recommended by GA

We recommend that you purchase a service bundle that is recommended by GA. You can enter the information about the service that you want to accelerate on the GA introduction page. After you enter the information, the system generates a list of recommended services. You can purchase a GA service bundle that includes the recommended GA instance and basic bandwidth plan. For more information, see Get started with GA.

Select and purchase GA resources based on your requirements

You can refer to the following content if you want to purchase a GA instance and basic bandwidth plan:
