Hourly Pricing Questions
I’ve been running a droplet containing a web server the past year using monthly pricing. I’d like to get a second droplet for running a server for a video game but I’d only be using it during certain times of the day. From my understanding, if I were to use hourly pricing, I’d only be charged when the droplet is in use? When I don’t need it, could I create a snapshot, delete the droplet, and restore it when needed? Since I’ve never needed to do that, is that a quick process? Furthermore, could I automate that process so it automatically turns on from xpm-ypm on weekdays and then snapshots and destroys itself when it’s not those hours? Thanks for answering my questions!
