General Package Rules:
1) Users who purchase or renew ECS instances from the General Package page that match one of the above ECS sale configurations are eligible for the sale price, including Data Transfer Plan. The data transfer limit is only valid for the month of purchase. During the purchase or renew cycle, the data transfer limit will be reset for renewals. Under regular scenarios customers lose the unused data transfer limit from the previous month but if they renew General Package instances they will get the same data transfer limit as from start of the previous month. Data usage costs beyond this data transfer limit can be found here.
2) The Data Transfer Plan in the General Package will be sent to your account after your Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance has launched from the General Package page successfully. The usage details of your Data Transfer Plan can be found here . The peak bandwidth for ECS instances purchased from the General Package is 30Mbps. Please note Alibaba Cloud reserves the right to adjust peak bandwidth. If you need higher peak bandwidth, please launch instance from the Advanced Purchase page, in which you can choose peak bandwidth up to 200Mbps for your ECS instance. Please note there is no data transfer special offer (General Package) for the ECS Instance purchased from the Advanced Purchase page.
General Package FAQ:
1. Are there any restrictions on users and purchase volume?
General Packages are currently available to all registered users with Alibaba Cloud accounts. There is no limit to the number of the Packages a user can purchase.
2. Can coupons be used to purchase General Packages?
Given they are a special and cost-effective offer for customers, coupons cannot be applied to purchase General Packages. However, certain coupons can be used in conjunction with the Packages. Please refer to your coupon description or campaign rules to review the details of use.
3. How do I renew my General Package(s)?
The General Package supports automatic and manual renewal. If you select manual renewal, you will need to log in to the Console and renew your ECS included in the Package. Please note that each ECS instance and Data Transfer plan in this package must be renewed together. If you cannot renew due to an issue with your payment method, please contact post-sales for assistance.
4. Can General Packages be refunded?
Sorry, General Packages cannot be refunded.
5. Are instances included in the Package equivalent to instances available on the ECS product page?
Yes. We offer generation Ⅱ or Ⅲ ECS instances for General Packages. Therefore, performance is the same as instances for sale on the ECS product page, assuming you choose the same CPU and memory settings. General Package instances also receive an independent IP address, just as instances sold through the ECS product page.
6. Can I upgrade my ECS instance and disks?
Currently only new disks can be added to General Package ECS instances. CPU and memory upgrades are not supported.
7. How do I get the Data Transfer Plan listed in the Package?
The Data Transfer Plan will be sent to your account after the successful launch of your ECS instance.
8. How long is the valid period of the Data Transfer Plan for the Packages? What happens to unused data in my plan? What happens if I exceed my Package Data Transfer Plan?
The Data Transfer Plan is only valid for that month's usage period. Unused data will not be transferred to the following month. If the traffic for that month exceeds the package amount, you will be billed at the instance's network Pay-As-You-Go regional rate. Here are the rates per region. You can also purchase the Data Transfer Plan from here.
9. What is the peak bandwidth of the ECS in the Packages? Can this be modified?
The peak bandwidth for ECS instances from the Packages is 30Mbps. This cannot be modified by the user. If you need higher peak bandwidth, we suggest you purchase ECS separately and set the peak bandwidth up to 200Mbps.
10. Does the Data Transfer Plan apply to cross-regions?
There are three types of Data Transfer Plans: China Mainland, Hong Kong, and Outside of China. These three plans support regions as listed below.
China Mainland: Beijing, Hangzhou, Qingdao, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Zhangjiakou
Hong Kong: Hong Kong
Outside of China: EU Central, US East, US West, Australia, and Singapore
11. When a single account purchases more than one instance from the General Package, what is the usage logic for Data Transfer Plans?
In this case, all Data Transfer Plans in same type will be used one by one according to the subscription expiration date. The earlier the expiration date, the higher priority for it to be used. For example, if one user purchases three instances (A, B, C) in same type and receives Data Transfer Plans separately named A1, B1, C1 with the expiration dates of 5/6/2017, 5/9/2017 and 5/16/2017. The consumption sequence will be: Data Transfer Plan A1 from instance A will be used firstly to all instances (A, B and C). When A1 has been consumed or the expiration date is due, B1 will be applied successively to all ECS instances. The same logic is followed by C1.
12. How to check the usage of the Data Transfer Plan within the Package?
Log in to your Console, and follow these steps: Billing Management > Resource Package Management > Resource Package Overview, and select Data Transfer Plan in the drop down box menu called “Product”.
13. What is the network type of the ECS instances in the General Packages?
The network is randomly assigned with a priority of VPC. If you have any specific requirements on the ECS network, please check the order confirmation page to see whether it satisfies your requirements.
14. Can the public IP address of the ECS be changed?
Sorry we don’t support this change.
15. Which regions require ICP certification for Alibaba Cloud? Which do not require ICP?
All Mainland China regions, including Hangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Qingdao and Zhangjiakou require an ICP License. Sydney, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, US West, US East and Singapore do NOT require an ICP License. Please note if you use the Mainland China CDN service, you will also be required to apply for an ICP License.
16. How do I apply for an ICP Filing?
When applying for an ICP Filing (the first category of an ICP License), you must follow Chinese Internet management regulations. An ICP Filing must be obtained for all websites created on ECS instances on a web server or CDN node located in Mainland China. Please visit the ICP Filing Application page. Due to registration, auditing, and other reasons, the ICP Filing page is currently only available in Chinese characters. Support and application review services in English language will be available in the future. For more information about obtaining an ICP Filing, please see ICP Filing FAQ.
Disclaimer
Alibaba Cloud reserves the right to adjust the purchase policy, pricing, product configurations and features, including but not limited to set maximum number of Starter Packages that one single account can purchase, adjust the application of the Data Transfer Plan (e.g., the Data Transfer Plan can only be applied to the instances purchased in the Starter Packages), etc.
Alibaba Cloud will update the Purchase Guidelines and FAQs, and send notification emails to existing Starter Package users when adjustments are made.
