Any subscription includes:
The price depends on what you would like to do at the panel. The price consists of the following:
- Number of servers in your account
- Number of slices
- Additional statistics and options
Costs (USD per month)
Adding more and upgrading costs
If you need to add or remove more servers and options, you can do it any time during your billing period.
New slices, servers and other options will be reviewed a few days before the beginning of the next billing period and your subscription will be upgraded or downgraded accordingly.
Case 1. You have 2 servers and you need to view geo, ISP and ASN statistics of your viewers. The price would be $20 for default full slice, $5 for geo/ISP, $10 for each server and $5 for each server for ASN. The total price would be 20 + 5 + 10*2 + 5*2 = $55 per month.
Case 2. You have 1 server and you need to view geo-location stats and have Deep stats for a dozen of your streams. You also want to show this to one of your customers. The price would be 2 by $20 for two slices, $5 for geo-location stats, your Deep stats will probably not cost more than $20 and your server requires $10. So your total will be 20*2 + 2*5 + 20 + 10 = $80 per month.
Upgrade/downgrade case. Your account has 1 server with 1 default slice and you've subscribed for 30 USD on May, 1st. Now it's May 15th and you add 2 more servers and enable geo-location stats. On May 26th you get automated message which describes the 2*10 USD upgrade for servers and 5 USD upgrade for geo. Your subscription is updated accordingly to 55 USD. Then you remove geo-stats on May 31st and your subscription is downgraded by 5 USD.
So on June 1st you are charged by 50 USD.
Step by step: take a look at how you can gradually increase costs by adding new productsm servers, options and features over time.
