Can we purchase Yearly Plans

  • Posted September 18, 2014

Fairly new to Digital Ocean, love their pricing vs Amazon AWS!

I’d like to ask if it’s possible to bulk buy in advance? Eg 2-3 YRS upfront.

Have you guys got plans to stick around for the next 5 years? IF so i think you could make a lot of upfront capital if you offered yearly plans.


Thanks @asb ! What if we don’t have a paypal accounts and but have purchase orders. Will that work?

@seanma There hasn’t been any change on this. We still do not currently offer yearly plans, but you may put credit on your account in advance using PayPal if that is an option of your institution.

@asb Following up on this topic, what if I’d like to pay in advance from a university grant account, will your recommendations still hold? Thanks!

Any news on this?

It is usefull for two things:

  • Less management
  • Discounts, we are interested in two years plan

Has this been implemented by DO yet??

Now it’s year 2019 almost 2020. Is it possible to pay a for a plan for one year (an advance)? In my country, I often have the possibility to pay for example for hosting yearly. I don’t like to give my credit card, I prefer to pay an advance for example always before 1-st of Janary (every year 20XX). How it is now?


Right now, we don’t offer yearly plans though it’s definitely something we’re considering. We use UserVoice to track feature requests and gauge user demand. You can add your vote to the open request there and subscribe to get updates on it.

If PayPal is an option for you, one thing we do offer right now is the ability to pay in advance by adding credit to your account using PayPal.

Thanks for the feedback!
