GearHost offers three different plans for your CloudSite:
Both the free and Hobby work the same technically behind the scenes but the free plan has a lot of restrictions in place since it's meant for non production development and testing. The reserved plan is your own private node in the cloud that you can scale out further into your own private cloud so to speak. In this doc we'll go in depth over the differences between each plan and how to scale between them.
| | Free | Hobby | Small | |---------------- |--------------- |---------------- |------------- | | CPU | 60 min/day | 240 min/day | Unlimited | | RAM | 256MB/hour | 1024MB/hour | 2048MB/hour | | Storage (SSD) | 100MB | 1GB up to 100gb | 1GB up to 100gb| | Bandwidth | 1GB/day | 1TB | 1TB | | Requests | 250 Concurrent | 1000 Concurrent | Unlimited | | Idle Time | 20 min | 60 min | | | SSL | No | Yes | Yes | | Custom Domains | Yes | Yes | Yes | | Web Sockets | No | Yes | Yes | | 64-bit | No | Yes | Yes | | CPU Burst | 1m @ 25% / 5m | 3m @ 50% / 5m | Unlimited |
There is an easy way to separate the plans.
Fortunately, you don't even have to make this decision now. You can start with free and then scale up if you run into limits. Same thing with standard and reserved allows you to scale out across multiple instances. Each instance is a private node in the cloud.
