    IPSec VPN Pricing

    IPSec VPN supports the traffic-based billing.

    Traffic-based billing

    Traffic-based billing contains two parts, traffic fee (traffic going to the public network) and gateway fee (hourly billing, with a minimum usage of one hour).

    • For traffic fee details, see Public Network Billing.
    • For gateway fee details, see the following table:
      Note:

      VPN gateway is your target gateway on Tencent Cloud side. The traffic flowing through the VPN gateway incurs fees. The gateway fee is billed by traffic.
      The traffic here refers to the outbound traffic of the VPN gateway, which is also called the downstream traffic.

    Gateway specification Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanjing Silicon Valley, Frankfurt, Seoul, Mumbai, Virginia, Moscow, Tokyo, Taipei (China), Hong Kong (China) Toronto, Singapore, Bangkok
    5 Mbps/10 Mbps/20 Mbps/
    50 Mbps/100 Mbps
    0.074 USD/hour 0.089 USD/hour 0.12 USD/hour
    200 Mbps/500 Mbps/1,000 Mbps 0.44 USD/hour 0.6 USD/hour 0.75 USD/hour
    3000 Mbps 0.6 USD/hour 0.9 USD/hour 0.9 USD/hour

    Billing Example - Usage period less than one hour

    Assume a user purchases 50 Mbps VPN gateway in Beijing with the bill-by-traffic option and uses a total of 5 GB traffic between 07:00:00-07:59:59, then at 08:00:00, the user will be required to pay the following fees:

    • Traffic fee: Traffic unit price (0.12 USD/GB for Beijing) × Traffic Usage (in GB) = 0.12 × 5 = 0.6 USD
    • Gateway fee: Gateway unit price (0.074 USD/hour for Beijing) × Gateway usage period (hourly billing, at least one hour is charged) = 0.074 × 1 = 0.074 USD

    Total price = Traffic fee + Gateway fee = 0.6 USD + 0.074 USD = 0.67 USD

    SSL VPN Connection Pricing

    SSL VPN is a pay-as-you-go service. It contains three parts of fee: traffic fee (going to the public network), gateway fee (hourly billing, with a minimum usage of one hour), and SSL connection fee (hourly billing, with a minimum usage of one hour).

    • For traffic fee details, see Public Network Billing.
    • For gateway fee details, see the following table:
      Gateway specification Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanjing Silicon Valley, Frankfurt, Seoul, Mumbai, Virginia, Toronto, Bangkok, Singapore, Moscow, Tokyo, Taipei (China), Hong Kong (China)
      5 Mbps/10 Mbps/20 Mbps/
      50 Mbps/100 Mbps
      0.074 USD/hour 0.12 USD/hour
      200 Mbps/500 Mbps/1,000 Mbps 0.44 USD/hour 0.6 USD/hour
    • For the SSL connection fee, see the following table:
      Number of connections Price (USD/hour)
      (0,10] 0.003
      (10,1000] 0.002
    Note:

    For 200 Mbps and 500 Mbps, up to 500 connections are supported. For 1000 Mbps, up to 1,000 connections are supported.

    Billing Example - Usage period less than one hour

    Assume a user purchases a 50 Mbps pay-as-you-go VPN gateway with 5 SSL connections in Beijing. During 07:00:00 to 07:29:59, the traffic usage is 5 GB. The bill for the next hour (08:00:00 to 08:59:59) is calculated as below:

    • Traffic fee: Traffic unit price (0.12 USD/GB for Beijing) × Traffic Usage (in GB) = 0.12 × 5 = 0.6 USD
    • Gateway fee: Gateway unit price (0.074 USD/hour for Beijing) × Gateway usage period (in hour) = 0.074 × 1 = 0.074 USD
    • SSL connection fee: Connection unit price (0.003 USD/connection/hour for Beijing) × Number of SSL connections × Usage period (in hour) = 0.003 × 5 × 1 (Usage less than one hour is rounded up to one hour) = 0.015 USD

    Total price = Traffic fee + Gateway fee + SSL connection fee = 0.6 USD + 0.074 USD + 0.015 USD = 0.69 USD
