What is the difference between subscription and burst use?

Monthly subscriptions are the most cost-effective option for customers intending to run their servers continuously. You pay a fixed price for that month, regardless of how long your servers are running during that period.

We also offer an ‘hourly burst’ pricing model for customers who do not run their servers all the time. You deposit a prepay balance with us, from which money is deducted automatically as you make use of the service, rather like a prepay cell phone. The rates are twice the subscription rates, but when your servers are off you are only charged for disk space.

Please see our Pricing Information for more details.
