Simple Pricing for All

SunSed is free to start and you only pay for what you use. There are no minimum fees and no upfront commitments. You can start for free and pay as you grow by adding credits to your account and use them to pay for any SunSed resource. These credits never expire and you can add more credits at any time. Our policy is to never surprise you with unexpected charges, that is why by default we suspend your app when your credit is exhausted. You can change this behavior by contacting our support team. Enterprise customers can also opt for anual contracts with monthly billing.

Add More, Save More!

SunSed lets you top up your app with credits, control spending, and save with bulk credit purchases:

Credit Bonus Total
$50 - $99 10% $55 - $108
$100 - $249 15% $115 - $286
$250 - $499 20% $300 - $598
$500 - $999 25% $625 - $1248
$1000 or more 30% $1300 or more

For example, when you add $100 in credit to your application, you get a $10 bonus, totaling $110; for $1000, you get a $300 bonus, making it $1300. These credits never expire and are available for all SunSed services.

Effortless Auto-Scaling for Your Apps

SunSed automatically adjusts to your app's needs. You only pay for what you use. If your app uses no resources, there's no cost. Need more? Just add credits any time. For instance, a low-traffic website might only need $15 in credits for a whole year if it has a custom domain ($1/month). Without the domain, it could run even longer on the same credits.

This pricing freedom means you can run multiple apps at minimal cost, perfect for experimenting with various ideas or maintaining low-traffic projects like blogs.

Note

If you have a history of $500 credit purchases, we can remove the automatic app suspension when credit is exhausted – basically allowing you to go into negative credit. Please contact us to request this.

Pricing Details

AI Usage $0.1/Thousand

Your application's AI service usage is tracked via AI credits. Currently, AI is only utilized when creating magical functions, costing about 500 AI Credits or approximately $0.005. Remember, this is a one-time charge for creation, not for execution, allowing unlimited runs at no extra cost.

Bandwidth Out $0.1/GB

Bandwidth Out is the amount of data that your application sends out (e.g., file download); incoming bandwidth (e.g., file upload) is free. SunSed automatically optimizes your website images to reduce bandwidth usage by up to five times. A typical non-optimized JPEG file of 1MB can be reduced to 200KB without any visible loss of quality using the WebP format supported by all modern browsers.

Let's assume you have a webpage that is 1MB in size (5 images of 200KB) and it is viewed 100,000 times by unique visitors (so that the browser cache is not used). This will result in 100GB of bandwidth usage, which will cost you $10.

App Code Deployments $0.005/Thousand

App Code Deployments is the number of times you deploy your code to SunSed. You are charged only for new or altered file deployments; unchanged files are not recharged. Assuming a developer changes 10 files and deploys them 100,000 times in a month, the total cost will be $0.5. Deploying code to the production or development environment is the same charge.

App Code Deployment Size $5/GB

App Code Deployment Size is the size of code deployed. You are charged $5/GB for the size of code deployed; you are not recharged for unchanged files. Here we highly recommend not storing large files in your project directory. Instead, store them in the file storage and access them using the file storage's permanent URL. This will not only reduce your deployment cost but also speed up your Git operations (if you are using Git).

However, if you do need to store images and other files in your project directory, you will only be charged once for the size of the unique files deployed. So, if you have 100 files of 1MB each, the total cost will be a one-time charge of 100MB * $5/GB = $0.5. By one-time charge, we mean that if you deploy the same files again, you will not be charged.

CPU Time $0.1/Hour

CPU time represents the duration your application takes to process a request, and for billing purposes, it is calculated to the nearest 100 milliseconds. Thus, if your app uses 250 milliseconds of processing time, the billing would be rounded up to 300 milliseconds.

Let's assume your application takes 200 milliseconds to process a request and you receive 100,000 such requests in a month. This will result in 20,000 seconds (5.55 hours) of CPU time which will cost you $0.55.

Custom Domain $1/Domain

This resource is tracked based on the number of custom domains you have attached to your application. You are charged $1/month per domain (or sub-domain) for SSL-secured custom domain setup. For example, if you attach www.example.com and example.com to your application the cost is $2/month. The granularity of this resource is one hour so if you attach a custom domain for two hours, the cost is approximately $0.001.

Database Read $0.1/Million

Database Read is the number of rows that are processed by your queries, with each query counting as at least one row. For example, if you have a query that returns 10 rows, the cost is 10 read operations. If you have a query that returns 0 rows, the cost is 1 read operation.

Let's assume you have a query that returns 10 rows and you receive 100,000 such queries in a month. This will result in 1,000,000 rows read which will cost you $0.1.

Database Storage $5/Gigabyte

Database Storage is the data your app stores in the database. Database storage is charged at $5/GB/month. For example, if you have 10GB of data stored in your database, the cost is $50/month. The actual data storage is calculated by the hour and rounded up to the nearest hour. For example, if you have 10GB of data stored in your database for 10 hours, the cost is $0.5.

Assuming an average row size, a user table with (name, email, password) will be 400 bytes. If you have 100,000 users, the total size of the table will be 40MB, which will cost you $0.2/month.

Database Write $1/Million

Database Write is the number of rows that have been written, either through updates or inserts. For example, if you have a query that inserts 10 rows, the cost is 10 write operations.

Let's assume you have a query that inserts 10 rows and you receive 100,000 such queries in a month. This will result in 1,000,000 rows written which will cost you $1.

Developer $20/Seat (first 2 free)

Developer is the number of people that have access to your application. The first two seats are free for the account owner and the first additional developer. For example, if you have 3 developers, the cost is $20/month. If you have 5 developers, the cost is $60/month.

This resource is tracked based on the number of developers in your account. You can add or remove developers at any time, and you will only be charged for the time they were in your account. For example, if you add a developer for 5 days, the cost is (5/30) * $20 = $3.33—assuming the developer is not the account owner or the first additional developer because they are free.

Email $1/Thousand

The charge for email services is based on the volume of emails your application sends. For instance, should your application dispatch 10,000 emails in a given month, the fee would be $10.

File Read $0.001/Thousand

File Read is the number of times your application reads a file. For example, if you read 100,000 files in a month, the cost is $0.1.

File Storage $0.1/Gigabyte

File Storage is the total storage used by all the files stored by your app. File storage is charged at $0.1/GB/month. For example, if you have 10GB of files stored in your application, the cost is $1/month. The actual file storage is calculated by the hour and rounded up to the nearest hour. For example, if you have 10GB of files stored in your app for 10 hours, the cost is $0.1.

File Stored $0.05/Thousand

File Stored is the total number of files stored by your application. For example, if you have 100,000 files stored in your app, the cost is $0.5/month.

File Write $0.02/Thousand

File Write is the number of times your application writes or updates a file. For example, if you write 100,000 files in a month, the cost is $2.

Logged Items $0.1/Million

Logged Items is the number of items logged by your application. For example, if you log 100,000 items in a month, the cost is $0.1.

Logged Items Size $1/Gigabyte

Logged Items Size is the size of the data logged by your application and is charged at $1/GB/month. For example, if you have 10GB of data logged by your app, the cost is $10/month. The actual logged items size is calculated by the hour and rounded up to the nearest hour. For example, if you have 10GB of data logged by your app for 10 hours, the cost is $1.

Requests $0.001/Thousand

Requests is the number of requests processed by your application. For example, if you receive 100,000 requests in a month, the cost is $0.1.

Schedule Run $0.01/Thousand

Schedule Run is the number of scheduled function calls. For example, if you make 100,000 scheduled function calls in a month, the cost is $1.

Schedule Run Size $1/Gigabyte

Schedule Run Size is the amount of data stored for a scheduled function call. Schedule run size is charged at $1/GB/month. For example, if you have 10GB of data stored for a scheduled function call, the cost is $10/month. The actual schedule run size is calculated by the hour and rounded up to the nearest hour. For example, if you have 10GB of data stored for a scheduled function call for 10 hours, the cost is $1.

FAQ

Is there a free trial?

Each SunSed app comes with a $5 free credit, and you'll only pay for what you use above this amount. Credits do not expire.

How are the charges calculated?

Charges are based solely on your usage – there is no minimum fee. Most of the above resources are tracked in hour, so if you add 10 developers to your account and remove them after 5 minutes, you will only be charged for approximately 1 hour of developer time.

What happens if I exceed my pre-paid credit?

You’ll receive a notification to add more credit. If you don’t add credit, your app stops responding to requests once the credit is exhausted. You can add credit at any time to resume service almost instantly. Some rosources like database and file storage may keep incur charges even if your app is not responding to requests and may bring your balance to negative.

For applications with a history of $500 credit purchases, we can remove the automatic app suspension when credit is exhausted. Please contact support@sunsed.com to request this.
