    This document describes how to renew a Lighthouse instance manually or set auto-renewal for it.


    Manual renewal

    You can renew an instance or batch renew multiple instances manually in the following steps based on the instance status:

    Renewing one instance

    1. Log in to the Lighthouse console.
    2. On the Instances page, enter the details page of the target instance.
    3. Select Renew in the Billing information section. In the Renew instance pop-up window, select the renewal period in calendar month as shown below:

      If cloud data disks are mounted to the instance, they will be renewed at the same time. You can also select Align the data disk expiration time with that of the instance to xxxx to align the instance's and cloud disk's expiration time.

    4. Click OK to enter the renewal order payment page, click Submit order, and make the payment as prompted.

    Batch renewing instances

    1. Log in to the Tencent Cloud console.
    2. Click Fees in the top-right corner and click Renew in the drop-down list box.
    3. On the renewal management page, select the target instances and click Batch renewal above the list as shown below:
    4. In the Batch Renewal pop-up window, select the renewal period, click OK, and make the payment for the renewal order.



    You can select Auto-renew the device every month if my account has sufficient balance during instance purchase to enable the auto-renewal feature. After successfully creating an instance, you can modify its auto-renewal settings in the following steps:

    Choose the appropriate operation method based on your actual needs:

    1. Log in to the Lighthouse console.
    2. In the instance list, select the target instance to enter its details page.
    3. In the Billing information section, you can enable or disable the instance auto-renewal feature as shown below:
    4. In the Enable/Disable auto-renewal pop-up window, click OK.
    • After auto-renewal is enabled, the instance will be automatically renewed on the expiration date. Make sure that your account balance is sufficient on the resource expiration date.
    • If your instance expires today, manually renew it.
    • If you manually renew an instance before the expiration date, Tencent Cloud will automatically renew it on the latest expiration date.
    • You can set auto-renewal, renew to a certain time, and perform other operations on the renewal management page in the console.
