Should I choose a free or paid subscription?

The free plan is designed for personal sites only. If your site is commercial in nature, displays ads, or involves a business, then you need to sign up for one of our paid plans. Noncompliance with these terms will result in immediate suspension of services without notice.

Educational Institutions and Non-Profit Organizations are not eligible for a Personal/Free plan at this time. We do, however, waive the API comment check limits for such groups upon verification of their eligibility.
