Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up for the free trial?
Use your Google or GitHub single sign-on or provide your email to create a new account. A valid payment method is required to validate your identity, but we will not charge you during your trial. Promotional credits are available only to new customers who have not previously signed up for a free trial.
What can I do with my free trial?
Once you complete the sign-up process and agree to our Terms of Service, you can use your credit towards many of our Compute plans (GPU plans are excluded from this promotion), Object Storage, Block Storage, or NodeBalancers offerings. If you exceed the allotted credit amount within the specified trial period, the overage will be charged at standard rates as outlined on our Pricing page. Click to learn more.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, and Google Pay (with an associated credit card). For additional payment options, including wire transfer, purchase orders, and ACH, please contact us. Note that when you add a card, we may send a temporary pre-authorization request to the issuing bank. This pre-authorization charge is immediately released, but may take a few days to clear from your card depending on the bank.
What happens after my trial period ends?
You must spend your service credits during the trial period. Unused service credits will automatically expire, and we will charge you our standard rates for any service over the allotted credit amount. For more information on our prices, visit our Pricing page. Click to learn more.
