In consequence, we need to let you understand about updates we’re making to our pricing. A few of these modifications will present new, lower-cost choices, whereas others will elevate costs for sure merchandise.

Which companies may have new pricing?

We’re growing costs for some compute occasion sorts and extra IP addresses.

  • The worth of Shared and Devoted compute plans will enhance by 20%. Our shared Nanode plan stays unchanged at US$5 per thirty days.

We all know Nanodes are essential to a lot of our particular person prospects. Regardless of our prices going up, we made the choice to maintain our Nanode pricing intact. And whereas we have now elevated the costs of our Shared and Devoted plans, our costs are nonetheless 60% decrease than the massive hyperscalers’ costs and in keeping with or decrease than the costs of a lot of our different opponents.

Reducing egress pricing in half

The brand new pricing construction for egress units a brand new bar for the cloud computing trade.
