I was using pay-per-use with MySQL first generation. It was a website with all I was using pay-per-use with MySQL first generation. It's for a website with all pages cached in memcached and only evicted from cache when I update content. Writes to SQL can also occur if somebody register for newsletter or similar (happens ~10 times/month). I was getting away for free with the pay-per-use model, but that model is not available in the second generation.

As far as I can understand, there is no way to get below $7 per month now with the new model. Is that correctly understood?

Or is there an API where I can turn on/off the SQL instance when I receive a registration or update content? It feels strange to pay so much for a service I use for less than a second 10-100 times per month.

Minimal setup is about 7-8$ per month as you stated. You can check all the prices in the Cloud SQL pricing documentation.

If you don't want to pay it, you can use Cloud Firestore which is has a free tier available and it might fit your needs.
