Pricing and charges

We endeavour to keep our pricing simple and transparent, so you’ll never get any nasty surprises.

Simple cloud instance and cluster node pricing, billed hourly

Our cloud instance and Kubernetes cluster node prices are the same.

Spin up and clear down services as and when you need them – only pay for what you use.

Please note: As our #KUBE100 Kubernetes service is currently in beta, all accepted applicants will receive a $70 discount on monthly invoices.

Any use of services that exceed the $70 free credit allowance will be billable as normal.

Will I be billed for the #KUBE100 beta?

During the #KUBE100 beta programme, when your monthly invoice is issued, a discount of $70 or the invoice balance will be applied (whichever is lower) - this is plenty to test out the service. If your usage for the month through clusters, instances or other Civo resources exceeds $70 in a given month, the overage will be charged to the card on file.

Am I billed for the master node for Civo Kubernetes?

Yes. Our managed Kubernetes service runs on k3s, which due to its small footprint allows the master node to also perform work alongside the other nodes.

How are charges worked out?

Services are billed hourly and are charged at the rates listed above ^. Our hourly pricing is worked by dividing your monthly fee by 28 days. See our charges and payment page for more detailed information.

What happens if payment can’t be taken?

If for any reason payment cannot be taken, we’ll attempt payment for 6 further days and notify you that your services are at risk. After an additional 7 days (the 14th of the month) any services will be suspended, and 7 days later deleted if no payment has been made.

What is my quota and how does it work?

All customers have a default quota applied to their account – these are limits of the amount of simultaneous resources you can use, you can view these quotas from the quota section of your Civo account. These resource quotas are in place so we can control the growth of the Civo platform, and so that any errant scripts using our API don’t exhaust our available resources.

If you need a higher quota you can ask for an increase from the quota page – we’ll always look to increase quotas for any reasonable requests.
