We’re excited to release a new version of Meteor.com! Along with the new look and easier navigation, we’ve made changes in some key areas where we were lacking (based on feedback from the community). The most important of which is around Galaxy Hosting pricing and available plans. Here’s what’s changed:
New 4 GB free trial for all new Galaxy Hosting accounts for 30 days.
All new accounts can now run any container size (up to 4 GB) completely free for 30 days. We wanted to give users the opportunity to test out what running a large scale app on Galaxy is like, in order to make an informed decision on whether it’s right for their app.
Not a good fit? No problem. As long as you move away from Galaxy within the 30 days there’s no charge for your usage.
Have an account already but have since moved away from Galaxy? If you reach out we can help set up the free trial for you to get you back up and running : -)
New “Tiny” container size.
One of the common feedback threads we receive is it would be great if there was another container size option for smaller side projects - some low cost option that users could use to test a production app on Galaxy without worrying about an unreasonable expense. Our answer was a new container size we’re calling “Tiny”. Tiny is $9/Month (essentials, if paid monthly. $7/month if paid annually) option for hosting small projects at a reasonable price.
If you’re an existing Galaxy Hosting customer, nothing changes for you! We will never bump you up to a new pricing plan. You signed up at price point, and that’s what you’ll get.
We hope that these key changes make the site more navigable, Galaxy Hosting more accessible to the community, while looking forward and setting us well for long term success.
