Pricing

With Cloud DNS pricing, the charge is per zone per month (regardless of whether you use your zone), and you also pay for queries against your zones.

If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.

Pricing table

The following pricing applies to all zone types: public, private, and forwarding. All zone types are aggregated for purposes of pricing. For example, if you have 10 public zones, 10 private zones, and 10 forwarding zones, then your pricing is based on having 30 zones. All queries are aggregated as well, regardless of zone type.

You can use labels to label zones in certain ways. You can then use these labels to see per-label breakdowns in your billing.

Metric Price
Queries: 0-1 billion $0.40 per million queries per month.
Queries: over 1 billion $0.20 per million queries per month.
Managed Zones*: 0-25 $0.20 per managed zone per month.
Managed Zones*: 26-10000 $0.10 per managed zone per month for each additional zone after 25.
Managed Zones*: over 10000 $0.03 per managed zone per month for each additional zone over 10000.

If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.

* Managed zone pricing is calculated based on the number of managed zones that exist at a time, prorated by the percentage of the month they exist. This prorating is measured by hour. Zones that exist for a fraction of an hour are counted as having existed for the whole hour.

Pricing example

The following table shows sample Cloud DNS usage patterns and the potential costs per month:

Usages Standard Website Enterprise Web Virtual Hosting Provider
Zones 5 200 100,000
Zone Cost 5 * $0.20 = $1 25 * $0.20 = $5
175 * $0.10 = $17.50

25 * $0.20 = $5
9975 * $0.10 = $997.50

90000 * $0.03 = $2700

Monthly Queries 10,000,000 50,000,000 100,000,000
Queries Cost 10 * $0.40 = $4 50 * $0.40 = $20 100 * $0.40 = $40
Total Cost $5/month $42.50/month $3742.50/month

If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.
