Does the cost of Space separate from the cost of using App Platform?

I have an app in App platform at 5 usd/mo (the cost is clearly indicated). I also use space. What is the cost of space? I cannot see its cost clearly indicated in the page. Thanks.

Hello Ferd,

Yes, the cost of DigitalOcean Spaces is separate from the cost of using the App Platform.

DigitalOcean Spaces is an object storage service that comes with its own pricing structure, independent of the App Platform’s pricing. The Spaces starts at $5 per month.

I could also suggest taking a quick look at this cost calculator here which might be helpful:

Hope that this helps!

Yes, the cost is separated for both services. As a whole, pricing is segmented based on the different services and resources you use. This is usually the case not only with DigitalOcean services but all cloud providers.
