Add bandwidth only and not more RAM?

Posted May 2, 2021 166 views

I mostly use my droplets for VPNs and I find myself burning through bandwidth quite fast as I’m not the only person who uses my VPNs. I’d like to add more bandwidth but I really don’t need more RAM nor do I want to pay for more RAM. Could the DigitalOcean staff add an option to only add more bandwidth?

Hi there,

I just came across a similar question asked here. To increase your bandwidth allowance, you would have to resize to a larger Droplet.

Or additionally, you can pay the bandwidth overage on the existing size as an alternative. It depends on your traffic pattern, which would be less expensive.

Hope that this helps!
