Creating multiple Spaces ("buckets") - do I have to pay multiple times?

I was wondering - If I want to separate the data stored in one Space into two Spaces (“buckets”), would I have to pay the monthly fee twice or not?

(there’s some applications that store stuff in S3 bucket root so sometimes it makes sense to separate it)

I had the same question. After a search I found this Help Article

it says “Spaces will cost $5.00/month for an unlimited number of buckets, which includes 250 GB storage and 1 TB transfer out from Spaces”

From the knowledge base

How much does Spaces cost?

Spaces costs $5/month and includes 250 GB storage and 1 TB transfer out, shared between all your Spaces. If you use more than that, the additional storage costs just $0.02/GB/month and the additional transfer costs $0.01/GB. Transfer in (uploads to Spaces) is free, and transfer between our NYC regions is also free. If you sign up for a subscription in the middle of a month, that month’s subscription will be prorated.
