Private network CLB is free of charge. Public network CLB charges instance fees, and public network must be purchased for its servers. For more information, see Public Network Billing.
Instance rental for public network CLB is based on pay-as-you-go mode and calculated on a daily basis (every 24 hours), so you don't need to pay your usage upfront.
We will withhold one day instance fee when pay-as-you-go CLB instance is created, so make sure you have sufficient account balance. After the purchase, a daily instance configuration charge applies even if the instance remains idle (no access and not bound with backend CVM).
The public network CLB charges instance fees differently in regions as shown below.
|Guangzhou, Qingyuan, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu & Chongqing||0.07|
|Hong Kong (China), Bangkok,Tokyo, Seoul & Mumbai||0.22|
|Singapore, Frankfurt, Toronto & Moscow||0.14|
|Silicon Valley & Virginia||0.12|
CLB and CVM can only be unbound manually, but they can unbind forcibly when CVM is isolated (when Pay-as-You-Go CVM account is in arrears for over 2 hours).
