  • You will be charged for total time your each droplet was running. If you use it for 2 minutes only then you will be charged for that hour. Similarly for 2 hours 20 min you will be charged for 3 hours.

    Note that min. $0.01 is charged for any droplet for its first hour.

Do I have to pay the cost of the server every time I create a new one?
No — you only need to pay for 1 hour of usage. Spinning up a new 512MB server just to test something for a couple of minutes will only cost you $0.0074
