Question

Allow customer to set monthly billing Cap

Please can we introduce a way to cap billing. Currently there is only email alerts. However say some unfortunate circumstance occurs and your hacked there should be a limit to billing.

I think without this then Digital Ocean would put them in a situation where they might have to cover the hacked billing. Its in both customers and Digital Oceans interest to have this feature.

Hey @alex736294,

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

In the meantime I could suggest a few things to make sure that you protect yourself:

  • Use a strong password.

  • Enable 2FA for your account:

  • Enable alerts as you already mentioned, that way you will be able to take action as early as possible.

Hope that helps! - Bobby.
