Billing Overview

Last updated: 2022-04-26 10:04:09

    Tencent Cloud Anti-DDoS Advanced has adopted new billing rules from March 24, 2022.

    Billing Mode

    Anti-DDoS Advanced adopts a combo billing mode of monthly subscription and pay-as-you-go. Specifically, base protection bandwidth, application bandwidth and forwarding rules are billed monthly, while elastic protection bandwidth and application bandwidth in excess of the plan are billed daily.

    Billable Item Billing Mode Payment Method Billing Description
    Base protection bandwidth Monthly subscription Pay-as-you-go Provides base protection bandwidth. The fee is billed based on the base protection bandwidth limit and subscription plan period. Fees will be frozen at time of purchase and settled on the 1st day of the next month.
    Elastic protection bandwidth Pay-as-you-go on a daily basis Pay-as-you-go Charges will be incurred only when elastic protection is triggered. Once it is triggered, you will be billed at the tier corresponding to the amount of usage for the current day (Peak attack bandwidth – Base protection bandwidth) and settled on the following day. You can customize the configuration to meet your protection needs.
    Forwarding rules
    • Monthly subscription
    • Billed by forwarding rules
    Pay-as-you-go 60 forwarding rules are provided for free for each Anti-DDoS Advanced instance by default. Every additional 10 rules costs USD 100 per month. Each instance can have up to 500 forwarding rules.
    Application bandwidth
    • Monthly subscription
    • Billed by bandwidth
    • Pay-as-you-go on a daily basis
    Pay-as-you-go
    • The application bandwidth limit applies to both the inbound Anti-DDoS forwarding traffic and the outbound Anti-DDoS traffic. The application bandwidth needs to be higher than the peak bandwidth of the two, whichever is greater.
    • When the application bandwidth is insufficient or a higher QPS is needed, you can upgrade or enable elastic application bandwidth; otherwise, packet loss or business impact may occur.
    • After elastic application bandwidth is enabled, bandwidth in excess of the preset specification will be charged at 1 USD/Mbps/day. Please select the specification after reasonably assessing your application bandwidth scale.

    Base protection

    The basic protection service is billed based on your monthly plan. See the following table for detailed prices.

    Regions in the Chinese mainland

    Base Protection Capacity Non-BGP BGP
    30 Gbps - 3,300 USD/month
    60 Gbps 7,200 USD/month 7,200 USD/month

    500 Gbps - 614,000 USD/year
    800 Gbps - 831,000 USD/year
    1,000 Gbps - 997,000 USD/year

    Regions outside the Chinese mainland

    Base Protection Capacity Anti-CC Protection Cap Price
    20 Gbps 40,000 QPS 4,800 USD/month
    50 Gbps 150,000 QPS 10,500 USD/month
    100 Gbps 300,000 QPS 198,000 USD/year
    Note:

    • "Non-BGP" refers to China Mobile/China Union/China Telecom network services. A non-BGP plan includes three Anti-DDoS Advanced instances, one for each of the network services.
    • "Outside the Chinese mainland" refers to Tencent Cloud regions outside the Chinese mainland, namely, Hong Kong (China), Taiwan (China), Singapore, Seoul, Tokyo, Virginia, Silicon Valley and Frankfurt.

    Elastic protection

    You can enable elastic protection as needed.

    Regions in the Chinese mainland

    • If elastic protection is not enabled for an instance, its maximum protection will be the base protection bandwidth, and no extra fees will be incurred.
    • If elastic protection is enabled for an instance, its maximum protection will be the selected elastic protection bandwidth.
      • If elastic protection is not triggered, no charges will be incurred.
      • Elastic protection will be triggered when the peak attack traffic exceeds the base protection bandwidth. You will be billed at the tier corresponding to the amount of usage for the current day (Peak attack bandwidth – Base protection bandwidth) and settled on the following day.
    Note:

    • Elastic bandwidth cap is the overall amount of multiple ISP bandwidth limits. Note that attack traffic exceeding one of the limits may be blocked even if the overall cap is not reached.
    • Billable elastic bandwidth = Peak attack bandwidth – Base protection bandwidth

    The detailed pricing of elastic protection is as follows:

    Billing Tier Non-BGP/BGP (USD/Day)
    0 Gbps ≤ Billable elastic bandwidth < 5 Gbps 130
    5 Gbps ≤ Billable elastic bandwidth < 10 Gbps 170
    10 Gbps ≤ Billable elastic bandwidth < 20 Gbps 340
    20 Gbps ≤ Billable elastic bandwidth < 30 Gbps 590

    600 Gbps ≤ Billable elastic bandwidth< 900 Gbps 14,670
    900 Gbps ≤ Billable elastic bandwidth < 1.2 Tbps 20,000

    Outside the Chinese mainland

    • If elastic protection is not enabled for an instance, its maximum protection will be the base protection bandwidth, and no extra fees will incur.

    • If elastic protection is enabled for an instance, its maximum protection will be the selected elastic protection bandwidth.

      • If elastic protection is not triggered, no charges will be incurred.
      • Elastic protection will be triggered when the peak attack traffic exceeds the base protection bandwidth. You will be billed at the tier within which the peak attack bandwidth for the current day falls and settled on the following day.

    The detailed pricing of elastic protection is as follows:

    Billing Tier Outside the Chinese mainland (USD/day)
    20 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 30 Gbps 400
    30 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 40 Gbps 700
    40 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 50 Gbps 800
    50 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 60 Gbps 1,200
    60 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 70 Gbps 1,800
    70 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 80 Gbps 2,200
    80 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 90 Gbps 2,500
    90 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 100 Gbps 2700
    100 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 120 Gbps 2900
    120 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 150 Gbps 3200
    150 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 200 Gbps 4000
    200 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 250 Gbps 4800
    250 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 300 Gbps 5600
    300 Gbps ≤ Peak attack bandwidth < 400 Gbps 6,600
    Note:

    Elastic bandwidth cap is the overall amount of multiple ISP bandwidth limits. Note that attack traffic exceeding one of the limits may be blocked even if the overall cap is not reached.

    Forwarding rules

    Number of Forwarding Rules Price (USD/month/10 rules)
    Number of ports (or protected domain names) ≤ 60 Free
    Number of ports (or protected domains) > 60 100
    Note:

    "Forwarding rules" is the total number of TCP/UDP ports (for non-website applications) and HTTP/HTTPS domain names configured (for website applications) that you configure for an Anti-DDoS Advanced instance.

    Application bandwidth

    Application bandwidth is the bandwidth used for forwarding the application traffic that has been cleansed by the Tencent Cloud Anti-DDoS data center back to the data center on the real server.

    • After elastic application bandwidth is enabled:
      • If elastic application bandwidth is not triggered, only the preset application bandwidth fee will be charged.
      • If elastic application bandwidth is triggered (the actual application bandwidth exceeds the preset application bandwidth), the excessive bandwidth will be billed on a daily basis with bill for day T pushed on day T + 1. The billing rule is excessive bandwidth * 1 USD/Mbps, and the excessive bandwidth is the maximum outbound Anti-DDoS traffic on day T minus the preset application bandwidth specification. If the excess is < 0, no bill will be pushed on day T + 1.
    • If elastic application bandwidth is not enabled, the maximum application bandwidth is the preset specification. If it is exceeded, packet loss or business impact may occur, and only the preset application bandwidth fee will be charged as follows:
    Bandwidth Price (USD/month)
    50 Mbps 750
    100 Mbps 1,500
    150 Mbps 2,250
    200 Mbps 3,000
    500 Mbps 7,500
    1 Gbps 15,000
    2 Gbps 30,000

    The relationship between the application bandwidth and the number of layer-7 requests is as follows:

    Application Bandwidth HTTP/HTTPS
    50 Mbps 5,000 QPS
    100 Mbps 10,000 QPS
    150 Mbps 15,000 QPS
    200 Mbps 20,000 QPS
    500 Mbps 50,000 QPS
    1,000 Mbps 100,000 QPS
    2,000 Mbps 200,000 QPS
    Note:

    • The application bandwidth is the maximum protection bandwidth for both inbound and outbound traffic. When the actual usage has exceeded the application bandwidth you set for a long period, we recommend increasing the limit before packet loss or service interruption occurs.
    • QPS measures the number of normal application requests per second when there are no attacks. If this number is larger than the application bandwidth you selected when you purchased your Anti-DDoS Advanced instance, we recommend that you increase the HTTP/HTTPS QPS limit promptly to avoid affecting your business due to packet loss. To adjust the application bandwidth, refer to the table above.

    Other Metrics

    See the following table for descriptions of other metrics:

    Metric Specification Description
    Number of forwarding ports 60-500/Anti-DDoS Advanced instance The total number of forwarding rules for TCP/UDP and HTTP/HTTPS. For TCP and UDP, if the same forwarding port number is used, two different forwarding rules need to be configured.
    Number of supported domain names
    Number of real server IPs 20/instance The total number of IP addresses for both layer-4 and layer-7 real servers.
    Number of new connections per second 50,000/Anti-DDoS Advanced instance The number of new connections per second for each Anti-DDoS Advanced instance.
    Concurrent connections 200,000/Anti-DDoS Advanced instance The number of concurrent connections per second for each Anti-DDoS Advanced instance.
    Note:

    The specifications above are only applicable to instances purchased on Tencent Cloud official website. If you want to increase specifications, please submit a ticket.

    Arrears Notification

    For Anti-DDoS Advanced instances:

    • If the account balance is sufficient, the system will automatically settle the fees for the previous month and deduct them on the 1st of the following month.
    • If the account balance is insufficient, the system will remind you to top up the account via the channel you configured (email, SMS, and Message Center).

    Service Termination

    Anti-DDoS Advanced adopts a pay-as-you-go model. If you want to end the service, you need to submit a ticket to terminate your instances. Otherwise, charges are still be incurred.

    • After you apply for a termination in the current month, the monthly-subscribed items will be settled as usual, while the daily billable items are settled based on the actual usage. After you terminate your instances, the service will be stopped immediately and the instances will no longer be billed for the next month.
    • The entire termination takes 1-3 working days to complete and is subject to the actual operation (protection fees may be incurred during the period).
