Introducing the QUIC.cloud CDN Free Plan!
The Free Plan offers unlimited bandwidth through a network of selected PoPs in North America and Europe. And, as the name suggests, it is completely free of charge.
Comparing Free and Standard Plans
Our original Standard Plan is still available for domains that want the full QUIC.cloud CDN global network of nodes, and advanced DDoS protection, but the pricing structure can be potentially complicated.
On the other hand, the Free Plan is easy as pie. Pricing is simple to understand because there is none: it’s 100% FREE!
The table below shows the main differences between the two plans.
|Free Plan||Standard Plan|
|CDN Nodes||Selected PoPs in North America and Europe||Full global network of PoPs|
|Bandwidth||Unlimited||First several GB free, with ability to purchase more as needed|
|Security||Basic||Configurable DDoS Protection|
|Analytics||Recent only||Available for a full year|
|Cost||FREE||Bandwidth charged by region|
If you’ve never used QUIC.cloud CDN (or any CDN) before, the Free Plan is an excellent starting point. And if you decide later that your site would benefit from additional DDoS protection, or a wider network of nodes, then switching to the Standard Plan is easy to do.
Note that these are CDN plans. Pricing for Online Services like Image Optimization and Page Optimization is handled separately.
Free Plan vs Free Credits
Let’s talk for a moment about the tier-based free credits that are available for Standard Plan users.
The fact is, everyone gets free credits every month, even Free Plan users. So, while the Free Plan does not consume any of these credits, they are available to you if you want to try out the Standard Plan at any time.
How to Switch Plans
For existing users who want to try the Free Plan, switching from the default Standard Plan is simple. Visit your QUIC.cloud Dashboard for the domain you wish to change, and navigate to the CDN > CDN Plans section.
Click the Change to Free button. A pop-up window will provide you with further details.
Click the Change to Free button to confirm you want to switch to the Free Plan.
If you decide later that you want to go back to the Standard Plan, that is equally as simple. Navigate again to your Dashboard’s CDN > CDN Plans section.
Press the Change to Standard button.
When the pop up window appears, select the regions you wish to use under the Standard Plan, and click the Change to Standard button to confirm.
The new QUIC.cloud Free Plan is easy as pie! It’s a simple, no-cost way to get started with QUIC.cloud CDN. For more detailed information about both the Free and Standard CDN pricing plans, please see our Knowledge Base.
