Idealstack’s pricing scales with you

Idealstack's pricing is built to scale like AWS does.  You pay for what you actually use, rather than trying to anticipate your needs in advance.

What plan should I choose?

If you are:

 

  • A startup, with a single app,
    that wants a ‘future proof’ stack that you can scale up later but doesn’t cost too much right now
     
  • You just want to do a small-scale trial of hosting on AWS for minimal cost

Choose this:

How do I sign up?

Start with a free trial to verify that Idealstack is what you want. If you’ve got questions let us know, we’d be happy to schedule a chat or answer questions over email at info@idealstack.io

How do I cancel?

You can cancel at any time, and the cancellation will take effect at the end of that billing month. We don’t beleive in locking people into long-term contracts, if our service no longer suits you we’d rather you were free to find one that did.

Since Idealstack sets up resources in your AWS account, you should clean these up as per these instructions

What about my AWS fees?

You pay AWS directly. Idealstack doesn’t act as a middleman or mark-up your AWS fees like other platforms do. AWS pricing is entirely usage based so it will vary based on your needs. You can reduce your costs by taking advantage of AWS reserved instances

Why isn’t AWS as cheap as other hosting providers?

There are other providers that sell cheaper ‘VPS’ services - these aren’t the same thing as an EC2 instance - you can after all put as many VPS’s on a physical server as you like, and these providers are in the business of providing the lowest possible ‘sticker price’, so that’s what they do.

Compared to the other ‘serious’ cloud providers, such as google cloud platform or Azure, AWS pricing is competitive. Take advantage of reserved instances to minimize your AWS costs

Why isn’t Idealstack as cheap as some other hosting providers?

We really aren’t trying to provide the cheapest, lowest quality hosting you can get. There’s plenty of other hosting providers out there doing that.
