Do we have to enter billing information even to get acquainted with Alibaba Cloud?

When I tried to create an instance in ECS on the alibaba cloud I was asked to enter billing information. Is it necessary tho? Could I just host my api on the cloud without entering my billing (credit card) information? Is there a way?

Check the email you received from the Chef, it clearly states that no need for that.

The email says:

"Step 1: Create a free account on Alibaba Cloud by going here ( At the end of the registration process, you will be asked to enter payment details but you don’t need to enter them and you can proceed with the step 2."
