DCDN

Billing Methods

• Pay By Peak Bandwdith

• Pay By Data Transfer

• Pay By Requests

• Pay By Websocket Traffic or Websocket Bandwidth

Description of Applicable Scenarios
Billing Method Description Applicable Scenarios
Pay-by-data-transfer Users are billed according to the actual traffic used and calculated on an hourly basis This billing method is applicable to scenarios where the domain name traffic curve has substantial fluctuations and bandwidth spikes or where the bandwidth utilization is less than 30% for the day
Pay-by-peak-bandwidth Users are billed by daily peak bandwidth. A peak bandwidth value is recorded at intervals of 5 minutes for a total of 288 values a day. The highest value is used for billing purposes This billing method is applicable to scenarios where the domain name traffic curve is relatively flat or where bandwidth utilization exceeds a daily rate of 30%

Note: The calculation for bandwidth utilization is as follows: Bandwidth Utilization = Actual Usage (GB)/(Peak Bandwidth (Mbps) x 10.54) For example: 1 Mbps bandwidth at 100% utilization for 24 hours would generate 10.54 GB of traffic usage.
