I think Glitch should rename their premium plan from Glitch Boosted Apps to Glitch Premium and let people buy individual boosts.
How it would work is Glitch Premium still gives you 5 boosted apps and unlimited rate limits, but it would also give you other stuff like:
- Custom Loading Pages for Projects
- Option to move all of your project sub domains to your own domain (.lengo.dev)
- Badge on profile and support forum to show your support for Glitch
- Custom domains without 2 thanks (thanks @Daniel for this idea!)
- And more stuff like that
And then on top of that anyone can buy additional individual boosts for something like $2.99 and it would be $1.99 for Glitch Premium Members.
This would be nice for people who need more then 5 boosts or only 1 boost.
Tell me what you guys think about this idea.
Not too bad of an idea. Maybe not right now, but in the future they could sure add this
Moved to Feature Ideas so people can vote on this.
This is like the best idea I’ve ever seen
Maybe add “let premium users use a custom domain without 2 thanks” to that list
Thanks for the idea! I updated the post and gave you credit
Maybe also alllow pinging for premium users, so that their unboosted apps don’t die every 5 minutes.
Well, the point of boosted apps is that they are technically given priority over other projects, because they are given more resources. But regular projects’ aren’t paying for the cost to run 24/7.
That defeats the purpose of using premium. It keeps the app 24/7 already.
Only boosted projects can be up 24/7 not the entire account. That is what he was talking about.
Still, that defeats the purpose of paying for a project to be 24/7. You buy glitch premium and you get all your projects 24/7
But like I said, those projects are paying for themselves. So if you add up the cost of someone with 100+ projects, that is almost 1K a month.
