Free and Shared

The Free and Shared service plans are ideal for experimenting with the platform and for development and test scenarios. Use the Free plan to quickly evaluate our platform and convert the application to a paid plan at any time without any delay or downtime. The Shared plan enables you to perform development and testing within the environment using SSL and domain name features before production, making it ideal for low traffic sites. Both the Free and Shared plans are billed on a per-app basis, rather than on a per-instance basis as with the Basic, Standard, and Premium plans.

In the prices below, the price for the Shared version reflects a preview discount.
