How can I freeze a droplet for a period?

Posted January 17, 2015 10.6k views

I’m giving a break on my project so I won’t use my droplet for a while. I want to freeze my droplet so I won’t pay monthly usage price for this period. I also want to access my droplet after I return to my project so I don’t want to destroy my droplet. Is it possible?

make a snapshot of the droplet and then you can destroy the droplet until you are ready to use it again, at which point you’d make a new droplet from your snapshot
