    Instance fee

    Note:

    Tencent Cloud upgraded the architecture of all CLB instances at 00:00:00, November 2, 2021 (UTC +8). After the upgrade, the guaranteed performance of each individual CLB instance is increased to 50,000 concurrent connections, 5,000 new connections per second and 5,000 QPS. The new unit price for CLB instances (both private and public network) is 0.686 USD/day for most regions, and 1.029 USD/day for the rest regions. See CLB Instance Upgrade and Price Adjustment for more details.

    • A private network CLB is free of public network fee but incurs instance fee. For more details, see CLB Instance Upgrade and Price Adjustment.
    • The public network CLB instance adopts pay-per-use model.
      • It is settled once every hour.
      • It is calculated based on the actual hours of usage.
      • Billing starts at the point in time when the CLB instance is created successfully and ends at the point in time when you initiate to terminate the instance.
      • Usage duration shorter than 1 hour will be calculated as 1 hour.
    • The public network CLB instance fee varies between regions:
      Region Instance Fee (Unit: USD/Day)
      Guangzhou, Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Hong Kong (China), Singapore, Jakarta, Silicon Valley, Virginia, Toronto, Moscow 0.686
      Bangkok, Mumbai, Seoul, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Sao Paulo 1.029
      • Billing sample:
        If you use a public network CLB instance between 09:00:00 and 09:59:59 in Guangzhou, the instance fee is 0.686 USD and will be settled and deducted at the next hour (10:00:00–10:59:59).
        Note:

        • Fee for one settlement cycle will be deducted in advance when you create a pay-as-you-go CLB instance. Make sure that your account balance is sufficient.
        • The CLB instance will incur hourly instance fees even when it is idle (i.e., there is no access requests and no real server is bound).

      Public network fee

      Tencent Cloud provides high-quality public VIPs for ISPs to ensure optimal network experience.

      Note:

      The public network fee for the client accessing CLB will be included in the CVM bill. If you do not purchase public network, you cannot access the CVM instance via the public network CLB instance.

      CLB IP Version Public Network Fee
      IPv4 and IPv6 NAT64 CLB instance When a client accesses a CLB, the public network fee incurred is included in the CVM bill. When creating a CVM instance, you need to specify the public network capability (maximum bandwidth) and billing method as bill-by-traffic. A CLB only serves as a public network egress. If you do not purchase public network, you cannot access the CVM instance via the public network CLB instance.
      IPv6 CLB instance IPv6 CLB is a paid service. For bill-by-CVM accounts, the bandwidth fee for an IPv6 CLB instance using the IPv6 dual-stack public network is settled in BWP. When creating an IPv6 CLB instance, you need to specify the public network capability (maximum bandwidth) and billing method as bill-by-BWP. For more details, see Billing Overview.
