I come from Heroku, although it’s been a while since I’ve worked on my app and just realized Heroku doesn’t have a free plan anymore. I looked at different sites and fly.io caught my interest.
I wanted to test it out, it’s only really a small full stack project I made to showcase while looking for a job. I highly doubt I’ll even get over 1 user per week as I wanted to have potential employers look at my app, try it, login, etc…
When I tried creating an organization, it says the hobby plan is $5. I mean I already added my credit card # and all but backed out and wanted to confirm first. If I create a new org, would I be paying the $5 instantly? Or it’s still a hobby free plan if and only if I don’t exceed a certain # of requests?
The free plan is free. I think they started collecting credit card info to prevent spam I guess. It won’t charge you for anything. Even on the paid plan, if you used less than $5, they won’t charge your card.
If you’re creating a new org in addition from the default “personal” assigned to all accounts, the Hobby plan will cost you $5/month for that org. See here Fly App Pricing · Fly Docs.
Otherwise, if you’re using your “personal” org you will not be charged anything unless you exceed $5 of usage.
Thank you both. I was under the impression I had to create an org in order to get started. Now that I’m looking at the Flyctl 101 section, seems like I can get started by just using the Flyctl terminal commands, so in this case there’s no need for me to create an org, correct me if I’m wrong please and I truly appreciate the responses received.
You automatically start with the “Personal” organization, which is created for you. You don’t need to create an additional org to get started.
Thank you everyone, this answers my question. I went straight at it instead of reading the documentation, smh been a while so feeling somewhat rusty
