Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The cost of this product is one of the reasons that we chose it."
  • "NS1's pricing is much more aggressive than its competitors in the market and you get more value out of what you pay for it."
  • "We pay about $30,000 a month. We used to pay about $20,000 with Dyn every month, for lower volume than we're doing right now, but it had none of the features that we have available with NS1, so it was worth it for us. It seems competitive for us, given that we're doing 4.5 billion requests."
  • "Everything can always be cheaper, but as it is today the pricing is fair."
  • "From a cost standpoint, it's certainly not the most expensive out there, and it's also not the cheapest, but it does well to balance the cost and the functionality/reliability."
