Does the price works the same for managed databases as for droplets?

Posted October 19, 2021 143 views


I’m still learning and trying out things, so I want to use only a bit of the Digital Ocean services. With droplets, I can use them for limited amount of time, like an hour, take a snapshot and just delete it. So I will only pay the hour.

I want to know if the same apply to managed databases? So I can use a managed Postgre for an hour, dump it and then delete it, and also pay just that hour?

Thank you!

Hello @rafaeltragueta79 ,

That’s a good query and similar to Droplets, you will also be charged per hour basis. Billing will be based on the hours of usage alone.

Hope this helps!
