Credit Granted for $5.00‏

Posted October 20, 2014 2.5k views

Hello Digital Ocean Comunity,

I’m John from Romania, and my question is this:
If I have received a $5.00 Credit Granted can I test the hosting of my website to see the difference between HDD and SSD server?

I want to test the speed of the server and website.
In order to do this, I have to create a droplet but the platform doesn’t allow me to do this before I pay $5.00 either credit card, either paypal.

Can you explain me, how can I test the hosting on Digital ocean with $5.00 Credit card granted?

Thank you.

In order to activate your account, you simply need to add a valid credit card to your account account. You can do this on the billing page. It’s only if you decide to use PayPal that you need to make a prepayment of at least $5.
