Purchase Guidelines & FAQs

What is Web Application Package?

The Web Application Package (“Package”) provides individual users, developers, and small startups with IaaS services providing a comprehensive set of web application development resources. Integrating ECS, optional web application development images from Alibaba Cloud Marketplace (WordPress, LAMP, LEMP, Magento, etc.), and domain names and resolution services, the Package even allows users to customize their own exclusive domain name email servers.

Are there any restrictions on the Package purchase?

The Package is currently available to all registered users with Alibaba Cloud accounts. There is no limit to the number of the Packages a user can purchase.

Given this is a special and cost-effective offer for customers, coupons cannot be applied to purchase the Package. However, certain coupons can be used in conjunction with the Package. Please refer to your coupon description or campaign rules to review the details of use.

How do I get the Data Transfer Plan listed in the Package? 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?

1) You will receive 12 monthly Data Transfer Plans in your Console order list. Each monthly plan comes with one-month validity that can be activated on a one-by-one basis.

2) The Data Transfer Plan is only valid for that month’s usage period. Unused data will not be transferred to the following month.

3) 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.

4) 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.

5) Data Transfer plan deduction rules, pricing and relationship between Area and Data Center, please check Data Transfer Plan Instructions.

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 Starter Packages. Therefore, performance is the same as instances for sale on the ECS product page, assuming you choose the same CPU and memory settings. Starter Package instances also receive an independent IP address, just as instances sold through the ECS product page.

What domain names are supported for registration?

Domain name registration only supports .COM and .NET domains.

When and where can I change the domain name registrant information?

When registering a domain name, the complete registrant information is required. The Cloud Web Hosting Package will extract the registration information from your Alibaba Cloud account. You can modify this information after registration on the domain page of the Console.

How can I test the Web Application Package domain name resolution?

The domain name you selected will be automatically resolved to the public IP address of the purchased ECS instance. Generally, approximately 5 minutes after the ECS instance activation status has changed to 'Running', you can access the ECS instance through the registered domain name.

On the Alibaba Cloud console’s ECS product page, select the region in which your Cloud Web Hosting Package ECS instance is running. You can see the state of any of your running Web Hosting Package instances, and their public IPs.

On Windows systems, you can manually verify the domain resolution to the server from the ping command.


1) Open the Dos window: Computer Desktop->Start->All Programs->Accessories->Run.

2) Enter ping+space+your domain name (for example:

3) Press Enter to display the results, which will show the linked IP address. If the IP address is consistent with the public IP address of the purchased ECS, this means that the resolution has been applied.

Likewise, on a Linux system, directly execute the ping command in the Shell environment to verify the resolution.

After my Alibaba Cloud DNS is purchased can I change the records?

The Cloud Web Hosting Package provides DNS functions. By default, it will automatically resolve the domain name to the ECS instance purchased in the Package. Of course, you can modify the resolution settings and set other A records and MX records. If needed, you can also resolve this domain name to another ECS instance purchased from Alibaba Cloud.

Can I purchase a domain name or the Alibaba Cloud DNS product separately?

At the moment, we do not allow users to purchase domain names or the Alibaba Cloud DNS products separately. By purchasing the Cloud Web Hosting Package one-year service pack, you will enjoy a free domain name and a one-year DNS product free trial.

In the future, you may be able to purchase domain names / domain name services. Please check back later.

Where do the web application images used in the Web Application Package come from?

The Package uses web application images from the Alibaba Cloud Marketplace, which have been carefully selected from third-party vendors. These web application images are offered by Alibaba Cloud partners that have been officially certified and tested by Alibaba Cloud.

Users can also choose Alibaba Cloud Public Images on the purchase page, for a customized deployment.

How do I create a personal WordPress blog in 5 minutes?

Please refer to the Tutorial for Cloud Web Hosting Package. After purchasing the Cloud Web Hosting Package, you can quickly create a personal WordPress blog site that runs on an ECS instance with an exclusive domain name and IP. This process takes less than 5 minutes.

Can I upgrade my ECS instance and disks?

Currently only new disks can be added to the Package ECS instance. CPU and memory upgrades are not supported.

How do I do a renewal of my Package?

Cloud Web Hosting Package currently does not have a feature to renew. However, Alibaba Cloud will provide an opt-in for renewal before your Package expires.

Can I get a refund on the Package?

Alibaba Cloud does not provide a refund function after the Cloud Web Hosting Package is purchased and the relevant ECS instance, domain name, and/or DNS resources are created.

In extremely rare cases (for example, when payment was made, but resources could not be created due to domain name registration failure or other issues), the Alibaba Cloud website will automatically refund you and release the relevant ECS resources.

Do I require an ICP filing for instances located in the Mainland China region?

If you select a China Mainland region for your ECS instance, you must complete ICP filing procedures for any ECS instances used for websites, in accordance with Chinese law.

How do I perform an ICP filing?

When filing ICP records, you must follow Chinese Internet management regulations. ICP filing must be performed for all websites created on ECS instances located in the Chinese mainland. Please visit the ICP Filing Application page.

Due to registration, auditing, and other reasons, the ICP filing page is currently only available in Chinese. Support and application review services in the English language will be available in the future.

For more information about ICP filings, please see ICP Filing FAQ.


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 FAQ s, and send notification emails to the existing Starter Packages users upon such adjustment.
