Site24x7's subscription model has a unique concept of Basic monitors and Advanced monitors, based on the type of monitors. It offers a set of Basic monitors, Advanced monitors, RUM Pageviews, Network Interfaces, AppLogs, and Alert Credits along with it. You must have a Elite, Enterprise or Enterprise Plus Web paid plans in Site24x7 to enable Business Units. After enabling Business Units, monitors from your previous plan gets migrated automatically to Business Units. Since Business Units allow a multi-tenancy setup, monitors and alert credits can be purchased and distributed among the different Business Units from a single console. You can further top-up your plan by purchasing additional add-ons and alert credits. It must be noted that your current Site24x7 account gets auto-added as the default Business Unit in Business Units portal. However, every new Business Unit will be charged $9/Business Unit per month (when billed annually) or $10/Business Unit per month. You can purchase the Business Units add-on from stores. We support payment via Credit Card, Paypal and Purchase Order. All payments via Credit Card or PayPal will be auto renewed based on the payment duration opted by you.
