How to subscribe to spaces?

i have registered an account, add a “spaces” project, all is working fine.

But how to subscribe to the 250GB for 5$? Is this automatic with the creation of the “space” and billed at the end of the month? Do i have to click anywhere to subscribe, because i found nothing? Or is this offer not available anymore?

Hello @MassiveNavyDinghy ,

The moment you create a Space, it is automatically subscribed.

The base rate of a Spaces subscription is $5.00 per month and gives you the ability to create multiple Spaces.

The subscription includes 250 GiB of data storage (cumulative across all of your Spaces). Additional storage beyond this allotment is $0.02 per GiB. If you cancel your subscription by destroying all your Spaces, your bill will be prorated hourly

Hope this helps!

Thx, just to get it right:

If i am over 250GB, 0,02 per GB is per hour (daily or month would be very cheap :D)?

And what is with traffic more than 1TB, how is this caluclated? No problem for me at the moment, the price is good, but just to know it right, before bad things happens :). Thx for the help!

Hello @MassiveNavyDinghy ,

Spaces subscriptions include 1,024 GiB of outbound data transfer (from Spaces to the internet), which is shared between all Spaces. Additional outbound transfer is $0.01 per GiB. Outbound data transfer is free in the following cases:

From Spaces in NYC3 to Droplets in NYC1, NYC2, and NYC3
From Spaces in SGP1 to Droplets in SGP1
From Spaces in SFO2 to Droplets in SFO1, SFO2, and SFO3
From Spaces in SFO3 to Droplets in SFO1, SFO2, and SFO3
From Spaces in AMS3 to Droplets in AMS2 and AMS3
From Spaces in FRA1 to Droplets in FRA1
Inbound bandwidth to Spaces never counts against your Spaces transfer allowance.

Droplets have their own transfer allowance, independent of Spaces. Traffic from Droplets to Spaces does not count against your Spaces transfer allowance (because inbound bandwidth to Spaces is free), but does currently count against your Droplets’ outbound transfer allowance. We’re working on changing this behavior.

Hope this helps! Refer to below link for more details:
