Does the Droplet Limit go back down as Droplets are destroyed?

Because of the speed at which I can create/destroy Droplets and the ease of setting up one click apps it’s the perfect place to test plugins I’ve developed in a clean Wordpress install.

Whilst 10 is plenty as a limit for the time being, I’m just wondering if I created and destroyed 10 very short lived Droplets, would I be able to create an 11th (assuming the previous 10 were destroyed)

It is a limit to the total number of created droplets, not the number of creations.

Hello, all

As per gparent’s reply if you destroy your droplets you can quickly deploy more droplets on their place.

If you want to increase your droplet limit you’ll need to follow these steps:

You can request a Droplet limit increase via your DigitalOcean Control panel. Then go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Profile’ -> And hit the 'Increase’ button.

Once there, you’ll want to click the Increase link to open the form to increase your account’s current limit.if you’re having a limit of 25 the option to increase the limit to 50 should work instantly and the limit will be increased to 50 droplets.

If you require a higher limit, then fill out the form and after you’ve submitted the form, it will then be passed on to DigitalOcean’s support team for review.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
