Question

Spaces billing question

I was looking at DO Spaces as an alternative to Amazon AWS. I want to buy around 3-4 spaces for the time being. Staying within the 250gb storage space and other limits, will I pay 5$ per space or just 5$ for all of them and then extra for more storage/data transfer.

Hello,

Spaces is an S3-compatible object storage service that lets you store and serve large amounts of data. Each Space is a bucket for you to store and serve files. The free, built-in Spaces CDN minimizes page load times, improves performance, and reduces bandwidth and infrastructure costs.

The base rate of a Spaces subscription is $5/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/GiB. If you cancel your subscription by destroying all your Spaces, your bill will be prorated hourly.
