How are DigitalOcean Spaces charged when I overpass 250 GB of storage or 1 TB of transfer?

DigitalOcean is clear on Spaces pricing: it costs a flat $5 as long as both are true:

  • Total size of all objects is less than 250 GB
  • Total monthly transfer is less than 1 TB

I’d like to know, how much will I get charged for:

  • Additional GBs of storage?
  • Additional TBs of traffic>

The subscription includes 250 GiB of data storage (cumulative across all of your Spaces). Additional storage beyond this allotment is $0.02 per GiB. If you cancel your subscription by destroying all your Spaces, your bill will be prorated hourly.

Regarding the bandwidth, the additional outbound transfer is $0.01 per GiB.
