Hi there,

DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.

Resizing a server changes the resources (CPU, RAM, and disk) that a server has. There are two resizing options for Droplets:

CPU and RAM only. This option lets you change the amount of CPU and RAM available to a Droplet.

Disk, CPU, and RAM. This option lets you change the amount of CPU and RAM available to a Droplet and permanently increase the size of a Droplet’s disk.

You can check our docs here:


Mine says “There are currently no sizes available for Fast-Resize.” :-(
