Got many Monthly Actives?

Daily Actives

We have the fitting plan!

All applications you build with any of our products run conveniently in the Photon Cloud. Hosting, operations and scaling services is all cared for by us.

Just estimate how many user you will serve in a month and the slider shows you the most suitable plan. Do not worry too much about an exact fit. You can up- and downsize at any time.

Traffic Overage Fees

All plans come with a free traffic amount of 3 GB per plan CCU. E.g. 20 plan CCU = 20 * 3 GB = 60 GB. Additional fees apply for each month and region the free amount is exceeded in.

3 GB
Included Traffic
$0.05 Europe / Canada, East / Russia / Russia, East / USA, East / USA, West
$0.10 Asia / Australia / Chinese Mainland / India / Japan / South America / South Korea

20 CCU FREE PLAN: The traffic included is 3 GB per Plan CCU. No further traffic can be used.


Use the sliders to calculate the messages for all players broadcasting their messages to all other players within the same room. Lower your actual message rate by using interest groups or raising your events to specific players only. Up to 500 messages per second and room are allowed.
The number of players is not limited.

Concurrent Users (CCU)

The number of users allowed to connect to your application is defined by its CCU. For plans the CCU total is defined by the sum of peaks for all regions.

Sample Month: EU peak 420 CCU, US peak 230 CCU, Other regions 0 CCU — CCU total = 420 + 230 = 650, matching 1000 CCU plan.

CCU Burst, Overage

We allow you to temporarily burst your CCU limit, so you don't have to worry about losing users. After your first burst you have 48 hours to upgrade your plan before your app will be capped.
For burst the CCU count is defined by the peak of CCU across all connected regions.


For optimum round-trip-times your application can connect the nearest region we host in. Choose from multiple regions around the globe.

Monthly Active Users (MAU)

We assume, as rule of thumb and based on our experience, 1 CCU to match 20 daily active users (DAU). Each DAU translates to 20 monthly actives (MAU).

One-Time Plans

One-time plans apply for one application and for a lifetime of 60 months , no recurring fees. One-time CCU add to any monthly plan, e.g. 100 + 500 = 600 CCU in total.

Down- and Upgrade at any Time

Downgrade and upgrade subscriptions at any time. New CCU are operative immediately. Fees from the former paid plan are automatically pro-rated. Cancellations take effect end of month.

Support and SLAs

All packages include free forum access and e-mail support. Contracts with guaranteed service levels, priority email and phone support are available with enterprise plans on request.
