    Literally the only thing that scares me about these amazing Amazon services is that theres no way to limit the charges and you have to put down a credit card. Im kinda paranoid about suddenly seeing like a crazy charge on it someday.

      LightSail is the same model as DigitalOcean/Linode/etc. The monthly plan is locked in, and you're charged for overages. If you go over your bandwidth on DO, for instance, you are charged at an uncapped 2¢ per GB.

      With typical AWS offerings like S3 and EC2, the price fluctuates much more (and I think that's what you're referencing). LightSail is comparable to the regular ol' VPS providers.

      That being said, the base levels of bandwidth are more than enough for any small web project, blog or portfolio site on all 3 services.
