Changes to Chartbeat’s plans and pricing

March 19th, 2010 by Tony

Chartbeat has made a few changes to its plans and pricing that we’d like to tell you about. These changes won’t affect current users, but will apply to everyone who signs up from now on. Chartbeat has been handling larger and larger sites recently with events like the iPad launch requiring us to handle hundreds of thousands of concurrent visitors to a single site. More and more sites have asked us to handle traffic beyond the limits set on the standard account. To make this easier we’re moving from a one-size-fits all account to different levels of accounts that can handle your site no matter what the traffic. The standard account will still be just $9.95 a month and will enable you to run five sites on chartbeat. We’ve set the traffic cap for this account at a cumulative total of 1,000 concurrent users (that’s 1,000 people on your sites at the same time), and if you manage to hit that cap you are doing really really well! Large sites can choose from a range of plans to fit their traffic needs going up to 15,000 concurrent users. If you need to go above even that level we suggest you get in touch! If you have any questions at all about the changes and how they might affect you, please do email us and we’ll get right back to you.
