I understand the price for Galaxy is $0.04 an hour per container running, but I am wondering if the container is always running? For example, if you have used the free hosting with Heroku your app sleeps when it is not being used and have no visitors. This is great because you have an allotment of free dyno hours every month and when the app sleeps it isn’t using up that free time you get. Obviously, there is a downside to this but for a hobby app, this is ok for me.
My question is does Galaxy do the same or similar thing? When I have no visitors or people on the app does it sleep automatically and not charge me for the time it is sleeping or will it run indefinitely until I manually turn it off. If it doesn’t sleep it would cost $28.80 USD on average a month to host which is a bit high for me to afford considering I need to host my db elsewhere.
Any help, clarification or advice would be greatly appreciated!
