ECM instances use EIPs as their public IPs. When EIPs are in idle status, they will incur IP resource fees.
- An EIP is considered “Idle” when it’s not bound to any cloud resource, and an IP resource fee will incur. For details of the IP resource fee, see Billing Overview.
- Starting from June 1, 2022 at 00:00 (UTC+8), Tencent Cloud Edge Compute Machine supports daily billing for the network bandwidth of EIPs. For details, see ECM Billing Overview. Submit a ticket if you have any questions.
The IP resource fee is calculated and settled on an hourly basis. The fees for an hour will be billed and charged in the next hour.
IP resource fee = EIP hourly rate × Billable period
To avoid unnecessary costs, bind your EIPs with cloud resources after they’re assigned to your account immediately, and release them immediately after unbinding them with cloud resources.
