Should I let deployed server sleep and how does pricing work?

I deployed very simple discord bot today, and its configuration file is this:

app = "<bot-name>"
primary_region = "<region-name>"

  internal_port = 8080
  force_https = true
  auto_stop_machines = false
  auto_start_machines = true
  min_machines_running = 1

I use free tier, if I let server work all day, do I pay more, how much active hours per month do I have?

It only works once a day sends simple message. Can I set it so it works only between 3 and 5 pm?


How it works

Our pricing is designed to let you launch a small application for free, and scale costs affordably as your needs grow. services are billed per organization. Billing is based on the resources provisioned for your apps, pro-rated for the time they are provisioned.


All plans require a credit card. Each organization starts on the Hobby plan, which is a straightforward pay-as-you-go option.

We don’t offer a “free tier.” Instead, we offer some free resource allowances that apply to all plans, including the Hobby plan, and includes enough usage per month to run a small full-stack app, full-time, for free.

If you want to scale beyond the included free resources, you can pay for just what you need at the usage-based pricing listed below.

Your organization might be limited to prevent abuse or help with capacity planning.

If you need more support or compliance options, you can choose one of our paid plans. These come with usage included and additional support options. In some circumstances, you may need an organization and a paid plan to get full access.

For details and to select a different plan, see: Plan Pricing

Free allowances

Resources included for free on all plans:

  • Up to 3 shared-cpu-1x 256mb VMs
  • 3GB persistent volume storage (total)
  • 160GB outbound data transfer
