Dynos are smart, lightweight containers built for modern languages and developer productivity

Pay only for what you use, prorated to the second. You pay only for the time your dyno is running as a fraction of the month. E.g. in a 30 day month running a dyno for 1 day will cost you 1/30th of the list price. Change dyno types at any time. Detailed Comparison.
