Prices explanation: $5 per space or $5 for spaces?

Object Storage Billing DigitalOcean

DigitalOcean isn’t very clear if it will cost me $5 per space (e.g: $5 for a SQL Backup space AND $5 for image hosting space) or if it’s $5 for access to spaces as a product and then I’m charged past the 250GB of storage and 1TB of bandwidth.

Any help clearing this one up please?

Once you start using Spaces, the actual number of Spaces has no effect on billing.

You can have one Space or a thousand Spaces, and as long as:

  1. The total storage across all your Spaces is less than 250GB
  2. The total outbound bandwidth across all your Spaces is less than 1TB

you will only be charged $5

Go ahead and create that Space :)

Thanks - this should be clarified on the pricing page. It is not clear …

I had to use google and find this very discussion in order to answer that question before I created my first space.

I strongly recommend this to be clarified on the pricing information site.
