I think it will like Google cloud and gave free $300 credit to use and will have issues.
Maybe needing someone tests this and share experience with everyone, but for me, not interested in free hosting services.

I haven't tried it previously, so by reading your post, I have register on their website to run some benchmark on their servers.
In fact, they do not offer $300 of credit, but $50 for server and 250$ for all other services.
Admin panel is really slow, and even after 30 minutes, I was still not able to launch an instance.

They bill bandwidth, SSD (default storage is not SSD based), and prices are the same than DigitalOcean or Vultr, which are really better in my opinion.

Thanks for your reviews, I think $300 is just a way to marketing their service to new users so that they will pay more attention to it.

I want to know how long can we use their hosting for $50? or it is cloud hosting thus we pay for what we will use?

I explored Chinese hosting providers, but haven't specifically tried Aliyun (Alibaba's hosting provider).

If you are looking for traffic within China (and the Chinese great firewall) it is critical to use a provider in China (along with an ICP license) or use a CDN with Chinese caching. There are others, like AWS China or (I think) Baidu.

But Aliyun is definitely one of the big ones within China.

(However, if you are looking for traffic outside of China, best to use one with non-Chinese datacenters and a CDN. You have to decide on your goals first, because TTFB will be very different depending on where the content is hosted and where the end user is.

price is reasonable but how about the service? kinda risky though.
