Accounts & Billing

Starting out with Heroku is free. To purchase Heroku resources, sign up for a free account, add a credit card, and then provision the resources you need.

As of November 28, 2022, free Heroku Dynos, free Heroku Postgres, and free Heroku Data for Redis® plans are no longer available. See our FAQ for more info. Eligible students can apply for platform credits through our new Heroku for GitHub Students program.

Heroku provides a robust set of free resources for every account. Once your application grows beyond the free-tier offering, expand its capability via paid resources like:
