* New and existing customers are not charged for health checks on up to 50 AWS endpoints (described below) that are within or linked to their AWS account (the “Offer”). The Offer is subject to the AWS Customer Agreement and is a Special Pricing Program under the AWS Customer Agreement. You will be charged AWS’s standard rates for any use that exceeds the free usage amount provided under the Offer. Unused usage amounts remaining at the end of the Offer term do not roll over. When calculating your use of AWS services under the Offer, we will aggregate your use across all AWS regions.

** An "AWS endpoint" is a resource running within AWS (e.g., an Amazon EC2 instance) that is provisioned within the same AWS account as the health check or billed to the same account as the health check. You are not billed for health checks of Elastic Load Balancing resources or Amazon S3 website bucket endpoints. Health checks of Elastic Load Balancing resources and Amazon S3 website bucket endpoints are provisioned automatically by AWS and are available for no additional charge as part of Amazon Route 53.

The prices above are exclusive of applicable taxes, fees, or similar governmental charges, if any exist, except as otherwise noted.
