Updated at: Feb 04, 2021 GMT+08:00

Purchase HSS for your servers.


  • The quota can be used only in the region where you bought it.
  • HSS should be deployed on all your servers so that if a virus infects one of them, it will not be able to spread to others and damage your entire network.
  • To enable HSS, choose Host Security Service > Servers & Quotas, and enable it on the Servers tab.
  • The premium edition is provided for free if you have purchased the WTP edition.


You have obtained the login account (with the HSS Administrator and BSS Administrator permissions) and password for logging in to the management console.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. In the upper left corner of the page, select a region, click , and choose Security > Host Security Service.

  4. On the Buy HSS page, set the quota specifications.

    1. Select Yearly/Monthly for Billing Mode.

      HSS can be billed in yearly/monthly or pay-per-use mode.

      If you select Pay-per-use, you do not need to purchase HSS quota. Click Enable Now in the lower right corner and enable HSS in the server list.

      In the Operation column of a server, click Enable. Set Billing Mode to On-demand. Set HSS Edition to Basic or Enterprise.

    2. Select a region.
      • To minimize connection issues, purchase quota in the region of your servers.
      • Non-HUAWEI CLOUD servers can access only the AP-Hong Kong region. You need to purchase protection quotas in this region and use the installation packages or installation command in this region to install the agent on non-HUAWEI CLOUD servers.
    3. Select an edition.

      Select Basic, Enterprise, Premium, or Web Tamper Protection. For details about the differences between editions, see Editions.

      • If you purchased the basic, enterprise, or premium edition, enable it on the Servers page of the HSS console.
      • If you purchased the WTP edition, enable it on the Server Protection page of the WTP console.
    4. Select an enterprise project.

      Select an enterprise project from the drop-down list.

      Selections are available only if you logged in using an enterprise account, or if you have enabled the enterprise project function. You can contact your service manager to enable this function and put cloud resources and members under enterprise projects for centralized management.

      • Value default indicates the default enterprise project. Resources that are not allocated to any enterprise projects under your account are displayed in the default enterprise project.
      • The default option is available in the Enterprise Project drop-down list only after you purchased HSS under your HUAWEI CLOUD account.
    5. Select the amount of time you want to use HSS for.

      You are advised to select Auto-renew to ensure your servers are always protected.

      If you select Auto-renew, the system will automatically renew your subscription as long as your account balance is sufficient. The renewal period is the same as the required duration.

      If you do not select Auto-renew, manually renew the service before it expires.

    6. Set the number of protected servers.

      If you have enabled the enterprise project function, you only need to purchase quotas for the servers in your enterprise project.
