    Frequently Asked Questions

    How can I add instances to my annual subscription? How will that be billed?

    You can add server instances to your annual subscription at any time using your existing license key. In terms of billing, you have two options:

    • Prepaid annual instances: Make a one-time prorated payment to add instances to your subscription at the annual rate.
    • Additional instances: Pay as you go at the per-instance monthly price each month in which you exceed your prepaid allotment.


    How is my usage calculated for subscription plans?

    For subscription plans, usage is based on the maximum number of concurrent instances in use at any given time during your bill cycle.


    Is there special pricing for high-volume deployments?
    Yes! We offer flexible pricing models specifically for high-volume deployments. Please contact us to learn more.
