Are you saying that you want to host 100GB of files or that you want to host many files that are each 100GB?

We offer two services that will help you to offer this service.

1.) DigitalOcean Spaces. This is an object storage service like Amazon’s S3. With this service you get:

  • 250 GB of storage
  • 1 TB of outbound transfer
  • $0.02 per additional GB stored
  • $0.01 per additional GB transferred

For $5/month as the base price.

2.) Block Storage (Volumes). This service allows you to mount an additional disk on your droplet. Unlike with Spaces you will need to determine your needs and create enough space up-front but you can resize later with a reboot of your droplet. Pricing for this option is $0.10/Gb/month and all bandwidth goes through your droplet.
