Cost for this machine by digitalocean is only $5 Per Month. But they charged me $19. How is that possible?

  • We need to rule out some probable reasons:-

    • Are you using Floating IPs?
    • Are you exceeding your 1TB Bandwidth allowance?
    • Are you in a country where VAT is mandatory?
    • Using Backups?

    A lot of this information should show in your invoice.
