* There are no charges for GET/PUT requests or data transfer between NephoScale Cloudlet Virtual Servers, BareMetal On-Demand Dedicated Servers, or ObjectStor Cloud Storage. GET/PUT request and data transfer charges related to Cloud Storage only apply to interaction with the ObjectStor cloud storage from outside the NephoScale network. Usage beyond the free allotments will be subject to NephoScale’s standard usage rates, which can be found on the NephoScale website in the cloud storage pricing details. Because there is the possibility that additional usage charges could exist, a valid credit card is required to sign up. NephoScale’s Free Cloud Starter Package expires 1 year from the date of a customer’s sign-up. After expiration, you will be charged standard usage rates on all items, and the hourly usage rate for the 256MB cloud server will be $.02/hr. If you would like to continue using the CS025 256MB RAM cloud server beyond the 1 year “free period” you must agree to the NephoScale terms of service, otherwise the cloud server will be terminated on the 1 year expiration date and will be unavailable for further use. You will have the option to pay an annual membership fee to receive the 50% off hourly membership pricing.
