Bandwidth Plans

Everything you need to know about Cherry Servers bandwidth policy and free traffic packages

Available Bandwidth

Every server comes with either 1Gbps, or 3Gbps Bandwidth port for ingress and egress public traffic, and has a free traffic package included by default. These free traffic packages add-up for each server creating a free monthly traffic cap for the whole Project. There is also a possibility to order additional traffic packages separately from servers to increase this overall monthly traffic cap of your Project. You may check your total Project traffic on the Client Portal. It shows bandwidth usage of the last 30 days.

Only after you exceed your monthly traffic cap, you start being charged  0,0005 EUR / GB for any extra traffic.

Free Traffic Packages

Each server that you order for a fixed-term period (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually) includes a free monthly traffic package which depends on the server processor. 

The exact free traffic amount are currently a follows:

  • Virtual Servers (Cloud VPS) - 1TB / month
  • Virtual Servers (Smart VPS) - 10TB / month
  • Dedicated Servers (Single CPU) - 30TB / month
  • Dedicated Servers (Dual CPU) - 100TB / month
  • Dedicated Servers (Quadruple CPU) - 200TB / month

Free Traffic Packages For Hourly Servers

Each server that you order on an hourly basis has the same free traffic package included by default, which is then used to calculate a free hourly traffic cap.
For instance, if you have a Dedicated Server (Single CPU), your free hourly traffic cap is ~41,7GB which is calculated as follows: 30TB / 720 hours = 41,7GB.


Aspects to keep in mind in case you own long term services, together with hourly services

The available bandwidth amount in total will  contain:
Long term services allowed bandwidth + allowed bandwidth for hourly services (counted for the amount of time you had been using the hourly server(s)).

As an example:

You have a long term server, that includes 30Tb of bandwidth for 30 days* and have ordered an hourly server 24 hours ago. The allowed bandwidth in total will not be 60Tb, it will be 30Tb + 0.98Tb (the horly servers’ amount allowed for free for 24 hours). 

IMPORTANT:

If you decide to cancel the hourly server - the used bandwidth will remain included in the total monthly usage. The allowed bandwidth will increase again depending on the total usage of newly ordered hourly services.

*30 days means 30 days counting backwards (not the 30 days of a calendar month)

What if I exceed my free traffic cap?

If you exceed your free monthly / hourly traffic cap, we may limit your bandwidth speed and issue an invoice for the exceeded traffic amount. Therefore, it is always better to order an additional traffic package in advance by contacting your personal account manager.
