Cost of hosting development on Amazon EC2

November 10, 2009 2 comments

I’ve noticed there were some searches coming through with people asking how much it costs to host servers on Amazon’s EC2. Without going into detail, last month I ran 3 Linux instances (m1.small) with no EBS and minor S3 usage, which cost me about $200 a month.

Compared to my previous hosting company – hostmonster.com – Amazon is way more expensive. However, I now find that taking care of my server administration needs is much easier and (gasp!) fun.
