CDN Billing and Payment

Topping Up the Balance

To enable a CDN resource, you must top up your Cloud Storage and CDN balance.

Payment Model

CDN resources are subject to a pay-as-you-go billing model. Traffic consumption is billed hourly.

Please note that due to our partners' service terms and conditions, charges might not apply immediately.

Traffic is billed per GB on a tier system. This means the price of 1 GB of traffic depends on the total amount of traffic consumed that month. The price of 1 GB of traffic reduces when the you enter a new tier. Traffic is reset every month.

Selectel CDN and Akamai CDN prices are available on our site.

For an estimate of CDN service costs, please use our resource calculator.


Under the Consumption tab, you can view traffic usage and costs by month.

Consumption for Akamai and Selectel CDN traffic is shown separately.

Billing Blocked Accounts

If your balance is not enough to pay for a CDN resource, the resource will be blocked and the cache purged. All settings will be saved.

After topping up your balance, the CDN resource will be restored and files will again be uploaded to the cache when users first request them.

To prevent your account from being disabled, set a low balance alert.
