Create a droplet for one day

October 29, 2014 1.7k views


Is it possible to create a large 4G droplet and use it just for one day? This is to stress test apps. If I create it, do I stop being billed as soon as I stop it or only when and if I kill it?

Billing continues for as long as you have it provisioned. Once you have destroyed the droplet, you will no longer be charged for it.

  • So you do have to destroy it, thank you, it is clear now. I am still adjusting to this cloud way of thinking and billing

You are charged for any droplets on your account whether they are powered off or not, since the resources are reserved to you.
