DreamCompute billing

What are the hourly prices?

You can run a DreamHost Cloud server (Instance) for as long as you need and only get charged for up to 600 hours (25 days) in a given month. No more confusing invoices, no need for complex calculators and no surprise bills at the end of the month.

The 'Max Monthly Price' shown in the following table is based on each server (Instance) you use.

Flavor Name Memory vCPU Hourly Price Max Monthly Price
gp1.semisonic 512 MB 1 $0.0075 $4.50
gp1.subsonic 1 GB 1 $0.01 $6.00
gp1.supersonic 2 GB 1 $0.02 $12.00
gp1.lightspeed 4 GB 2 $0.04 $24.00
gp1.warpspeed 8 GB 4 $0.08 $48.00
gp1.hyperspeed 16 GB 8 $0.16 $96.00

How much does bandwidth cost?

All bandwidth is currently free but may change at DreamHost's discretion. Please check back for the latest information on bandwidth costs.

How does hourly billing work?

You are billed for each individual instance and for each hour of usage until that instance reaches the monthly cap, additional hours for that billing cycle are free.

When is a virtual server considered running?

Billing stops for a virtual server once it is deleted.

How much do IP addresses cost?

In the US-East 2 cluster, instances receive public IPv4 and IPv6 addresses by default. These are available at no additional charge.

How much does extra block storage cost?

Each DreamCompute account includes 100 GB of block storage at no charge. You can adjust your monthly allotment of block storage by purchasing additional 100GB chunks.

Monthly pricing for the 100 GB chunks in US-East 2 is $10.00/month.

Pricing for block storage is based on the total monthly allotment rather than the amount used.

If you need more than 1100 GB of block storage, you will need to contact support.

Is private networking available in US-East 2?

Private networking is currently under development for US-East 2 and will feature improvements based on feedback received from US-East 1 users. Please contact support if you'd like to test this feature in US-East 2 at no charge (for a limited time)!
