Spaces Pricing

Spaces is an S3-compatible object storage service that lets you store and serve large amounts of data. Each Space is a bucket for you to store and serve files. The free, built-in Spaces CDN minimizes page load times, improves performance, and reduces bandwidth and infrastructure costs.


The base rate of a Spaces subscription is $5.00 per month and gives you the ability to create multiple Spaces buckets.

The subscription includes 250 GiB of data storage (cumulative across all of your buckets). Additional storage beyond this allotment is $0.02 per GiB. If you cancel your subscription by destroying all your buckets, your bill will be prorated hourly.

Bandwidth

Spaces subscriptions include 1,024 GiB of outbound data transfer (from Spaces buckets to the internet), which is shared between all buckets. Additional outbound transfer is $0.01 per GiB. Outbound data transfer is free in the following cases:

  • From Spaces in NYC3 to Droplets in NYC1, NYC2, and NYC3
  • From Spaces in SGP1 to Droplets in SGP1
  • From Spaces in SFO2 to Droplets in SFO1, SFO2, and SFO3
  • From Spaces in SFO3 to Droplets in SFO1, SFO2, and SFO3
  • From Spaces in AMS3 to Droplets in AMS2 and AMS3
  • From Spaces in FRA1 to Droplets in FRA1
  • From Spaces in SYD1 to Droplets in SYD1

Inbound bandwidth to Spaces never counts against your Spaces transfer allowance.

Droplets have their own transfer allowance, independent of Spaces. Traffic from Droplets to Spaces does not count against your Spaces transfer allowance (because inbound bandwidth to Spaces is free), but does currently count against your Droplets’ outbound transfer allowance.

Content Delivery Network (CDN)

The Spaces Content Delivery Network (CDN) is available at no additional cost. The transfer allowance that comes with the base Spaces subscription covers both CDN bandwidth and origin bandwidth. Transfer between the origin and the edge servers is calculated as part of the transfer allowance.
