Billing and Payment
To create a container in Cloud Storage top up the balance of the Storage and CDN.
Usage and Cost
Cloud Storage is a pay-as-you-go hourly service. Operating expenses reflect only the resources used each hour. When calculating service costs, four key factors are considered:
- Storage volume;
- Outgoing traffic;
- CDN traffic;
- API requests.
Resource prices can be found on our site.
Traffic and API request prices are subject to discounts based on the total quantity used during the month. Discounts for data storage are immediately applied to hourly costs once the amount of data in storage reaches a defined threshold.
For an estimate, please visit our price calculator.
Consumption and charges for storage volume, storage traffic and API requests can be viewed on the tab Consumption.
Cloud storage CDN traffic costs can be found in the CDN section — Consumption (Akamai).
Billing Blocked Accounts
If an account is blocked due to an outstanding bill:
- read and write access to data will be blocked;
- you will continue to be charged for data storage.
If you use a CDN, access to data will be saved for the cache lifetime. You will continue to be billed for CDN traffic and requests. If for 14 (fourteen) calendar days, your balance remains negative or equal to zero, then all data will be deleted with no chance of recovery.
To prevent account deactivation, set up balance status notifications.
