MapBox now offers a $49 per month standard TileStream Hosting plan. The standard plan gives you space to host five maps for $49 per month. As your needs grow, the account automatically scales to meet your usage in bundles of five map packages, for an additional $49 per bundle.

The new standard hosting plan is powered by our existing cloud infrastructure, which also powers our premium hosting packages. The new standard plan leverages all of the same features as the premium plan, like our fully redundant infrastructure and CDN, the map maker feature that provides YouTube-like embeds, full analytics, and Dropbox integration. Watch this video for a walk through of these features.

The biggest difference between the standard plan of five map bundles and our premium plan are bulk pricing, available bandwidth, and phone support. For organizations hosting 50–75 different map tilesets, the premium plan at $499 can be up to 50% cheaper than stringing together the smaller bundles from the standard plan. People who don’t need to host this many maps can just pay for what they need in five map bundles. We hope that the new plan will help nonprofits, small media outlets, and individuals start hosting — and creating — their own custom maps more easily.
