Q: Am I charged while my Droplet is in a powered-off state?
A: Yes. Your diskspace, CPU, RAM, and IP address are all reserved while your Droplet is powered off. If you want to save a Droplet for future use take a snapshot of it and then destroy it. You'll be able to create a new Droplet from the snapshot image anytime to bring it back online.
Sorry to have mention my alternative but other VM that i using is not charging up while its power off.
By when you turn off your VM they will move your stuffs some where then resource of your VM will
be clear for other person to be use but all of your stuffs still keeping somewhere else. This thing is
called Azure but for rate in bandwidth and resource is quite expensive. So if DO can use this idea to
handle how VM will poweroff and let other using these resource. :P
