Lighthouse is sold as instance bundles at favorable prices, which contain Tencent Cloud server resources such as CPU, memory, SSD cloud disk, and network data transfer plan. If the resources in a bundle cannot meet your requirements, you can apply for additional resources by purchasing out-of-plan data transfer.
The basic bundle currently is available only through monthly subscription. Monthly subscription is a prepaid billing mode, where you need to pay the fees for one or multiple months or even years in advance. The billing cycle is a natural month. For example,
If you purchased a Lighthouse instance at 00:00:00 on May 1, 2021 for 1 month, the monthly subscription billing cycle would be from 00:00:00 on May 1 to 23:59:59 on May 31.
If you purchased a Lighthouse instance at 00:00:00 on February 28, 2022 for 2 months, the monthly subscription duration would be from 00:00:00 on February 28 to 23:59:59 on April 30. The first billing cycle will end at 00:00:00 on March 31. The instance will expire at 23:59:59 on April 30.
An instance will enter the pending released status upon expiration and can be recovered if you renew it within 7 days.
If the "pending released" instance is not renewed, it will be released, and the data in the instance will be cleared and cannot be recovered. For details, see Overdue Payments and Service Suspension. Please note the instance status for renewing the instance or transferring data in time.

To make them available again, please top up your account until the balance is positive, or wait until the data transfer is reset on a monthly basis. Overdue payments will not affect the instances that do not exceed the monthly data transfer limit.
