Tencent Cloud allows users to purchase CVMs either from the console or via API. This document describes these two purchase methods in detail.
All users can purchase CVMs on Tencent Cloud Console. Based on different billing methods, you can purchase two types of CVMs: pay-as-you-go instance (billing is accurate to seconds and settled on an hourly basis) and spot instance (billing is accurate to seconds and settled on an hourly basis). For more information, see Pricing Modes.
Below describes how to purchase these two types of CVMs from the console.
- After activating the pay-as-you-go CVM, make sure that your account has sufficient balance. CVMs in arrears may be repossessed.
For more information, see Arrears Reminder.
- For specific configurations, see Price of CVM Instance, Price Overview of CBS and Public Network Billing to purchase CVMs based on your actual needs.
- For more purchase instructions and notes, see Notes for Purchasing from Console.
For more information on how to purchase a CVM via API, see RunInstances API documentation.
