Billing for bandwidth overage?

Posted February 9, 2015 4.2k views

I read here that Digital Ocean is not currently billing for bandwidth overages because there is no way to see total bandwidth usage through the control panel, is that true?

If so, if/when you do start billing for overage can you add a bandwidth limit and notifications through the control panel?

Please let me know, thank you!

Right now DigitalOcean is not charging for transfer overage.


That is correct. We are not yet charging for bandwidth overage so until the change is announced bandwidth is essentially unlimited. We do not yet have an ETA for when this change will occur but we will certainly be contacting all users prior to this taking affect in order to allow everyone to make any needed changes.
