What is the difference between bucket and spaces? And does cost increase per new bucket?

When I create a new bucket, it shows up in spaces section. I want to pay $5 for one space and create many buckets. Is there any additional cost?

Hey there! Buckets are instances of the Spaces product. The way that Spaces are billed is on a subscription basis, so $5 is for the Subscription. This allows you to create as many Spaces (buckets) as you like. The only additional cost that would be incurred is if you exceed the 250 GB storage and 1TB transfer out from Spaces limits. Uploads to Spaces are free. Beyond those amounts, data storage costs $0.02/GB and transfer out costs $0.01/GB.

I hope this helps! :)
