Visit the Manage Workspace page in the menu to see how you are billed for your Pro plan.
Plans are billed on monthly basis per workspace. If you have created multiple workspaces, select the workspace you would like to inspect from the menu.
The Billing section on the Manage Workspace page lists all the consumption details of your plan and allows you to configure scaling.
The base monthly fees are listed here.
If you are on the Free plan, you can use the Upgrade button to upgrade to a Pro plan.
This section lists the total fees; base plan + extras combined. The extras are determined by the consumption of additional resources this month. That consumption is determined by the Budget Settings.
Scaling with budgets
At KintoHub we take an unconventional approach to scaling. We allow your resources to scale dynamically within a predefined budget. This prevents bill-shock, whilst still having the capability to scale your resources on demand.
This means you can indicate how much you are willing to spend extra on a monthly basis on top of your base plan fees.
When your KintoBlocks need to scale to handle extra load, or if you need to deploy additional KintoBlocks, the extra budget will be consumed with the price per GB for additional memory and/or storage. The cost of these add-ons are listed on the Pricing page on the website.
Extras are charged pro-rated for the first month. The following month you will be charged again for the same additional resources in full. If you have freed up these additional resources during the month, then you won't be charged for them in the next month. Once resources are freed up, you can lower your budget if desired.
You can set the budget in the Budget Settings area in the Billing section of the Manage Workspace page.
- Enter in the Max Monthly Spend field the amount for your total budget, this includes your base fee.
- Press Save Changes to apply the new budget.
Extra resources that are consumed within the budget beyond the resources included with the base plan are listed in the Renewal Cycle area in the Billing section of the Manage Workspace page.
We will also alert you per email when you consume new extra resources as part of your budget.
