Idealstack’s pricing scales with you

Idealstack's pricing is built to scale like AWS does.  You pay for what you actually use, rather than trying to anticipate your needs in advance.

What plan should I choose?

Idealstack is designed to scale, so it can handle both small and large needs easily.  We've put together some examples below of common stacks for different needs

If you are:


  • A startup, with a single app,
    that wants a ‘future proof’ stack that you can scale up later but doesn’t cost too much right now
  • You just want to do a small-scale trial of hosting on AWS for minimal cost

Choose this:

How do I cancel?

You can cancel at any time, and the cancellation will take effect at the end of that billing month. We don’t beleive in locking people into long-term contracts, if our service no longer suits you we’d rather you were free to find one that did.

Since Idealstack sets up resources in your AWS account, you should cleanup when you cancel How to cleanup the resources Idealstack creates

What about my AWS fees?

You pay AWS directly. Idealstack doesn’t act as a middleman or mark-up your AWS fees like other platforms do. AWS pricing is entirely usage based so it will vary based on your needs. You can reduce your costs by taking advantage of AWS reserved instances
