Methods of Purchasing an ECS

Updated at: Jun 20, 2019 16:54
You can purchase an ECS either on the Build Your Own or Customize Your Own page.
  • Build Your Own: On this page, the ECS to be purchased uses the following configurations by default: The ECS is of general computing S6 series (S3 series by default for certain AZs where S6 series have not been released) and billed in yearly/monthly payments; the AZ is randomly allocated; the default security group is used; an EIP is automatically assigned. Build Your Own enables you to quickly purchase ECSs within several minutes, improving configuration efficiency.
  • Customize Your Own: On this page, you can flexibly configure parameters based on application scenarios, such as the billing mode and ECS specifications to better suit your service requirements.
