Try Out a HiveMQ Cloud Standard Package (free trial)

First-time HiveMQ Cloud customers are invited to take advantage of a special free trial offer. Our free trial of the Standard package is the perfect way to explore the features of HiveMQ Cloud.
Here are the details:

  • One HiveMQ Cloud Standard package per customer, free of charge for 7 days, then $1.50 per hour, billed monthly.

  • 100 GB of free data traffic during the trial period (additional data traffic can be purchased at the end of the free trial).

  • Cancellation anytime within 7 days at no cost. At the end of your free trial, if you do not cancel, your cluster continues to run and is automatically billed at $1.50 per hour.

  • HiveMQ requires your payment information to ensure a seamless transition after the free trial period.

  • Confluent Cloud integration is included in your free trial.

Start Your Free Trial

Once you sign up and log in to HiveMQ Cloud, you are ready to start your free trial:

  1. On the home screen of your HiveMQ Cloud console, select + Create New Cluster.
    A page where you can select your free trial of a Standard package opens.

    • Only one free trial is available per customer. If you have already completed a seven-day free trial, the Free Trial option is not visible.

    • You can delete a trial cluster and restart a new one any time within the trial period. A maximum of one free trial cluster can be running at a time. HiveMQ tracks the time that remains on your trial from the day that you start your first trial cluster.

    • To start a new free-trial cluster and continue your evaluation of HiveMQ Cloud, simply select the Standard package once more, as long as you are still in your Free Trial Period. The cluster selection page shows the number of days left on your free trial.

    • You can create and run non-trial clusters at the same time as your trial cluster.

    • The HiveMQ Cloud Business Critical package is not available for a free trial.

  2. In the Standard area of the Clusters page, select Select Package.
    A form to enter your billing information opens.

  3. Enter your billing information and select Confirm.
    A form to enter your payment method opens.

  4. Enter your credit card information and review the billing information.
    To begin your free trial period, select Start Free Trial Now.
    HiveMQ begins the deployment of your cluster immediately. The cluster creation process takes some time.

  5. After cluster creation starts, a dialog to Create HiveMQ Control Center Credentials opens. These credentials are needed to log in to the HiveMQ Control Center.
    Your user name must have at least 5 characters.
    Your password must have at least 8 characters and needs to contain uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and numbers.

  6. To save your control center credentials, select Create Credentials.
    To skip the creation of your control center credentials and continue, select Skip this step.
    (You can add and delete credentials at any time from the Clusters page of your HiveMQ Cloud console.)
    After you confirm or skip credential creation, the Clusters page opens and shows that your cluster is starting. When the startup process is complete, information about your new cluster appears on your Clusters overview.

To try out your new cluster, jump to the Cloud Quickstart Guide. To add an integration to a Confluent Cloud Kafka cluster to your free trial, see Integrations.
