We are making abot to run a browser based game, to prevent us triping the anti cheat system we need it to not run 24/7.

hence why we would like it run at certain times.

Hey, @caolanwiggins753

Could you please confirm if you would like to make the droplet running at certain times during the day for x period of time and then shutdown the droplet until you needs to run some tasks/jobs again? May I ask why this is needed?

Keep in mind that even if your droplet is powered off it’s still taking up space on the server and thus you’re still been charged for it.
