Hello, @emrepbu

In our public community, we aim to answer open questions about anything SysAdmin, DigitalOcean and beyond. However, we make every attempt to keep personal information safe and so don’t ever access personal account information here. This means we can’t provide help with any account or billing-related issues.

I will recommend you to contact our support team and they will be able to help you with this. You can also provide me with the ticket reference number once you have it so we can speed up the process for you.

Hope this helps.
