|Paid in advance, this option offers the lowest rates for continuous use, and best meets the needs of clients who wish to host an ongoing service. Simple and very competitively priced, Subscription Pricing is the more popular pricing plan. The longer the subscription, the greater the discount: enjoy a 10% discount with a 6-month subscription and a 15% discount with subscriptions 12-months or longer. A subscription can be for any number of days or months and can be increased or extended at any time. The quantity of any subscribed resource can be easily increased. Likewise, the length of the subscription can be extended.
A subscription covers a given level or resource use. You can run one or more servers up to this level, starting and stopping them as you wish. For example, a subscription for 10GB of RAM can be allocated to one, two, or more servers.
Note: Subject to a minimum rate of $0.001 / hour when using disk alone and a minimum rate of $0.060 / hour when running servers. And, we don’t offer refunds on subscriptions.
||Deducted from a prepaid account balance, this option offers clients the most flexibility to start, stop, and scale servers. It’s best suited for customers with irregular and unpredictable usage requirements; for example, during application development or for those platforms that experience uneven demand. The burst rates are 25% greater than standard subscription rates. Burst Pricing is charged in whole hours measured by the clock. This means that an hour bought at 1pm expires at 2pm even if you stop the server earlier, but also that if you stop the first server at 1:30pm and start a replacement at 1:40pm then it is still covered until 2pm.
Note: There are minimum balance requirements for burst use above $0.20 / hour. Above this level, you must have sufficient balance to cover 14 days of the excess use at the point that you add disk space or start a server.
