I am trying to run both staging and production on Heroku's free plan.

HP free plan
512 MB RAM │ Web × 1/Worker × 1
But what does Web x 1 mean?

Also, rather than running staging and production with the same one account
Is it better to create separate accounts for staging and production and manage them separately?

    I am trying to run both staging and production on Heroku's free plan.

    It will be difficult to run two apps 24 hours a day considering free slots.

      

    What does Web × 1 mean?

    It's about Web Dyno.
    Dyno is Heroku's original term and I haven't scrutinized it, but I think it has the same meaning as an instance in other services.

    I haven't read the rules, but if I imagine why the free quota is finite, the same user hasmultiple accounts for the purpose of extending the free quotaAs an unintended usage.
    If this is the case, it is not recommended for my view.
