How much does it cost?

Short answer? Stuff all. With average usage, you can expect to pay about $1USD per month. If that.

Hosting credits

In order to use the service, you must purchase hosting credits. Hosting credits are consumed in two ways:

1. Storage – You are charged for the amount of data you store per month (on average, calculated daily) at a rate of 24 hosting credits per GB of data stored. e.g: If you store 10GB of data (on average) for one month, you’ll be charged 240 hosting credits.

2. Transfer – Hosting credits are consumed at a rate of 24 credits per GB of transfer. So if use 5GB of data viewing videos, you’ll be charged 120 hosting credits.

Lets say you upload a video 50MB in length. It turns out to be super popular and you have 50 views per day for a couple of weeks. That’s a total of ~ 3.5GB of transfer, or 8.4 hosting credits. In dollar terms that’s just 0.35c (USD). Pretty cheap eh?
