Am I billed for hours when my droplet is “Off” or do I have to destroy the droplet before I am not billed for it?

@mpal_singh: Droplets are billed hourly. You will be charged for the time the first droplet has existed and the new one as well.

if I destroy a droplet and create new am I charged for both…or the second one is taken in continuation of first one

@Jeremy: Yes, snapshots cost an extra $0.02/GB/mo per snapshot.
