Can I use backup LightSail server or volume for free?
Yes. Using our Developer plan, you can automate snapshots of your LightSail server and volumes for free. There are no hidden charges, and you don't need a credit card to signup.
How much free storage is included?
Since snapshots are stored within your LightSail account, we don't count that toward your plan storage limit. In short, you can create as many snapshots as you like.
