Free and Shared

The Free and Shared (preview) service plans are ideal for experimenting with the platform and for development and test scenarios. Use the Free plan to quickly evaluate our platform and convert the app at any time to one of the paid plans without delays or downtime. The Shared (preview) plan allows you to develop and test in an environment with features such as SSL, domain names and more before production and is suitable for low-traffic sites. Free and Shared plans are metered on a per-app basis, rather than a per-instance basis as is the case with Basic, Standard and Premium plans.

Price for Shared (preview) plan reflects a preview discount.
