Love Railway but confused on pricing

Hello! I’m currently using the free trial of Railway for a service, and I’m loving it. As my free trial for Railway is almost depleted, I’m planning to move over to a paid plan. However, I find the pricing details kinda confusing. Here’s some background on the service I’m running on railway: it’s a simple node script that uses 0.0-0.1 vCPU and 200-300 MB of RAM.
I noticed that the hobby plan for railway is “$5/mo + resource usage.” My main concern is the resource usage part: will I be charged over five dollars a month for this service? Is there a way to cap resource spending or even set a fixed amount of RAM and vCPU I can pay for and not be able to go over? Thanks!

the hobby plan costs 5$ a month minimum, this is a subscription fee, it also comes with 5$ in usage, and the usage you have stated (0.1 vcpu & 300mb ram) this would cost exactly 5$ in usage, this usage would then be covered by the included 5$ of usage in your plan, leaving you to only pay the 5$ subscription fee

Thanks! Out of curiosity, is there a way to cap spending or resource usage? Like in this case I know I’ll only use 300 MB of ram max so is there a way to cap that?

theres not, you do get usage alerts so unless you plan on ignoring your emails, it would be hard to be hit with a large bill take it from someone who left a multithreaded for loop runaway overnight, fixed it in the morning and it didnt cost much extra at all
