Hi @Filice,

Unfortunately, I don’t believe you can. If you start DDoSing your Droplet, you’ll cause load on physycal server your droplet is hosted on. This will obviously cause issues with other customers on the same droplet. This is something DigitalOcean can’t have, one customer’s actions influencing other customers so a ticket might be opened to you to inform you that your droplet has been stopped.
