Q1: Relationship between Domains and Applications
Although the term “Domain” is not used anywhere in the Dashboard, it appears that it is the actual unit of licensing, based on this FAQ (https://www.algolia.com/doc/faq/accounts-billing/can-i-use-my-algolia-account-with-multiple-domains-sites-or-applications/).
My understanding from there is that multiple software applications of different types - say, a website, a console-based tool, and a mobile app - all associated
with data from the same website subdomain - say https://docs.example.com -
are all considered as one “Domain” (with uppercase D) and represented by one “Application” in Algolia Dashboard. Is this understanding correct?
If the site has a mobile version - say https://m.docs.example.com - which uses the same data and indices as above but is on a separate subdomain - does it
require a separate Domain with its own plan?
Q2: Limits on number of Applications
Trial plan seems to allow only one Application.
In the Upgrade plan page, Community, Starter and Pro plans mention “One Domain” in their limits sections, but don’t state anything about “Applications”.
How many maximum Applications are allowed under these plans?
Or, if my understanding in my previous question is correct - that each “Domain” is represented by an “Application” - it means the maximum number of
Applications that can be created in Community, Starter and Pro plans is also 1. Is this correct?
Q3: Relationship between Applications and Plans
Based on the Dashboard user interface, my understanding is that each Application under an account can have a different plan. For example, App1 can be on Starter and App2 on Pro. Is this correct? Or does a plan apply universally to all Applications under an account?
Q4: What does multi-user access mean?
The plans mention limits like “Multi-User Access (up to 4 users)”.
Does “user” here refer to collaborators in Dashboard > Team > Add Collaborator page?
Or does it refer to number of end users of the website, who type search queries?
