Question

Changing IP address

I’m a newbie to digitalocean. I paid 5 dollars using paypal. Can I change my droplet IP address? How many droplets can have at a time? If I shut down my server and used it rarely, the money in my account will remain or debited based on monthly? Because I use this service only 3 or 4 hours a day.

@srdjan: 5 512MB droplets running for 6 hours each will cost you $0.21 (50.0076). That means if you were to run 119 512MB droplets for 6 hours, it would cost you $5.

@Kamal, <br>I think the correct answer would be (if not mistaken in number crunching) $5 will run 5x 512MB droplets for about 6 hours? <br>Which for me raise another question, does everything stops after 6 hours as I run out of ‘credits’.

@swagtunnel: No, each 512MB droplet costs $5/mo ($0.007/hr rather) so if you were to run 5 512MB droplets it would cost you $25/mo.
