Understanding the free tier

If I am not wrong, then by the " * Up to 3 shared-cpu-1x 256mb VMs" it means 3 machines? And the machines go on idle automatically which means if i have 3 projects with 2 machines in each and only 1 machine is actively running in each project or say if 2 machines are running in 1 project, 1 machine is running in another project and in the third project none are running then I wouldn’t be charged right?

@xharuke 2 things:

  1. Correct, it is 3 machines on the shared-cpu-1x 256mb
  2. To clarify, the free allowance lets you run these machines 24/7 without sleeping. So think of it as you can have the equivalent of three of those machines going all day for that month. If you have more than 3 and some sleep, as long as it fits within that usage you’re good.
  3. If you do go over, you will not be charged if your bill is below $5 US. So in that way you have the 3 machines + $5 of usage built in to the “free tier”

I’m not the best at explaining things so if that doesn’t make sense let me know lol
