Question

Decrease Ram And Core only

hi Digital Ocean,

One of my client decide to decrease the size of the droplet to reduce cost. Is there any option to reduce only ram and core (if possible disk size too!) ?

Thanks in advance :)

Hey friend!

Great question. The only thing we don’t do is downsize disk. What this means is that you can resize up with just CPU and RAM, and then you can resize back down to the original size later. The one kind of resize you can’t do is to resize to a size that has a smaller disk. So in this case what you would actually need to do is spin up a new server and prepare it to host the content in replacement of the old server. When you are finished, you can destroy the first server.
