New

Docker has announced updates and extensions to the product subscriptions to increase productivity, collaboration, and added security for our developers and businesses. Docker subscription tiers now include Personal, Pro, Team, and Business.

The updated Docker Subscription Service Agreement includes a change to the terms for Docker Desktop.

  • Docker Desktop remains free for small businesses (fewer than 250 employees AND less than $10 million in annual revenue), personal use, education, and non-commercial open source projects.
  • It requires a paid subscription (Pro, Team, or Business), for as little as $5 a month, for professional use in larger enterprises.
  • The effective date of these terms is August 31, 2021. There is a grace period until January 31, 2022 for those that will require a paid subscription to use Docker Desktop.
  • The Docker Pro and Docker Team subscriptions now include commercial use of Docker Desktop.
  • The existing Docker Free subscription has been renamed Docker Personal.
  • No changes to Docker Engine or any other upstream open source Docker or Moby project.

    To understand how these changes affect you, read the FAQs. For more information, see Docker subscription overview.

Enhancement

The Billing Details page now shows any organizations you own, in addition to your personal account. This allows you to clearly identify the billing details of your chosen namespace, and enables you to switch between your personal and your organization accounts to view or update the details.

Enhancement

You can now specify any email address to receive billing-related emails for your organization. The email address doesn’t have to be associated with an organization owner account. You must be an owner of the organization to update any billing details.

To change the email address receiving billing-related emails, log into Docker Hub and navigate to the Billing tab of your organization. Select Payment Methods > Contact Information. Enter the new email address that you’d like to use in the Email field. Click Update for the changes to take effect.
