Clear and simple pricing, starting next month

In May 2015 we made a bit of an unusual move for a European company but a welcome change for our customers: we changed our base currency from Euro to US Dollar. We made this move as the US Dollar can be regarded as the de-facto currency when it comes to pricing of cloud infrastructure services.

Simple pricing

Today we are announcing another change to using multiple currencies, that will bring us closer to the industry-standard and bring more transparency to our prices. From March 1st and onwards, all deposits will reflect the daily market rate of the respective currency in USD. As such, we are also changing the currency displayed in your control panel to always show your funds in USD.

You can still choose to add funds in all our supported currencies to your accounts. The only difference is that deposits will be converted to USD based on the market. Would you choose to use USD and it is not your native currency, your credit card issuer will take care of the exchange. This is how it normally works with other cloud infrastructure providers and we want to position ourselves closer to this.

Using UpCloud’s Simple and Flexible plans

One of the advantages of our cloud computing platform is the ability to freely change your server configuration, add or remove CPU cores, RAM, and storage to best suit your needs. UpCloud offers Flexible server configurations alongside the Simple monthly plans for you to pick from at server deployment, but selecting one does not exclude you from the other. Read our article explaining the differences between these configuration options and how to easily move between them at will.
