Database Hosting pricing is usage-based. We bill monthly at the end of your billing cycle or when your use of the services reaches a preset billing threshold, whichever occurs first. Your billing cycle begins when you create your first application or database.
Your invoice will be based on:
- The database size (database resource type) and runtime
- Egress bandwidth, if applicable
Database Size and Runtime
Each database size contains a set amount of CPU, RAM, and disk space available. Database runtime is calculated based on seconds of usage.
If you require more disk space but don’t want to increase the RAM or CPU, you can purchase a database disk space add-on for $10 per 10 GB.
If you use an external connection with your database, external bandwidth usage charges may also apply. This egress bandwidth is calculated and billed on a per-byte basis at a price of $0.00000000014 per byte ($0.14 per GB). This means no rounding or charges based on every “started” Gigabyte. You will only be charged for actual usage. You can see your usage on the Bandwidth chart in Analytics.
Internal connections between an application and a database are free.
With this direct usage-based approach, if you create an application and delete it after a day, you only pay for the time used on that day.
