Addons allow you to apply boosts to your project's currently selected subscription plan.
Adding an Addon
You can add an addon to your plan at any time.
If you activate an addon while you are outside of a paid plan, your settings will be saved and applied to the next paid subscription period.
If you are currently within a paid plan you will be charged immediately and the addon will be added to your currently active plan.
Removing an Addon
You can remove an addon at any time. Removing or decreasing the quantity of an addon will be saved within the project's settings and will come into effect on the project's next subscription renewal.
During initial purchase, the cost of an addon is prorated based on the amount of time remaining within the project's active subscription period. If the project is currently 60% of its way through its current subscription period the initial addon cost will be decreased by 60%. (A minimum charge of [£,$,€] 1 applies.)
If you activate an addon for an annual subscription the initial charge will cover the purchase of the addon for the entirety on the subscription period (12 months) but will also be prorated based on any already elapsed portion of the annual subscription.
The Additional Storage addon increases the amount of assets that you can store on the Servd Asset Platform. The addon can be applied multiple times, each providing an additional 10GB of storage space for you to use.
Private IP and Load Balancer
If a private load balancer is already included in your Servd plan, you will not be able to select this addon.
Under normal circumstances Servd runs as a number of clusters with each cluster operating a single inbound traffic load balancer, handling all of the traffic for the cluster. This addon allows you to create a separate load balancer with its own private IP address to handle your project's traffic. This ensures that any large scale attack against Servd's standard infrastructure will not have a knock on impact on your project's availability.
We recommend adding CloudFlare in front of your private IP address in order to ensure it remains hidden from any potential attackers. This setup provides the most robust defence against any potential attackers. Servd's direct integration with CloudFlare also allows any necessary DNS changes to be made automatically on your behalf in order to get your Private Load Balancer up and running.
