What happens when I reach the monthly outbound transfer limit for App Platform

Posted September 4, 2021 241 views
DigitalOcean App Platform

I notice the App Platform bandwith is relatively small 100GB on professional tier. As I will be hosting a lot of images and videos, the bandwidth may run out fast.

What happens when the limit hits?

Hi @azrinsani,

There is no limits on outbound transfer. It’s just the package comes with that plan. You can use much more bandwidth but additional outbound data transfer is $0.10/month for 1 GiB.

Your outbound transfer is pooled at the account level. For example, if you deploy 3 static sites, 2 apps on Basic tier, and 1 app on Professional tier, then the total outbound transfer for your account will be 183GB per month (i.e. 3GB from the 3 static sites, 80GB from the 2 apps on Basic tier, and 100 GB from the 1 app on Professional tier).

You can refer the documentation for the same below:

Hope this helps!
