How does billing work? Can you pay for a server for a year?

Posted September 23, 2013 3.9k views
Hi there.. Probably a silly question I know, but couldn't find a clear answer elsewhere. I get the impression billing works per month? Can this be changed to per year? i.e. Can you 'prepay' for use for a year? My situation will likely be taking out a droplet for the whole year (I don't anticipate any changes in size); and the server will be on 24/7 for that year. Thanks.

Yes. Indeed you can prepay whatever amount you like. The prepayment will be recorded as a credit to your account (check Billing in the Control Panel). The credit will be charged with the incurred expense every month.
We only support pre-paying for a server via PayPal. You cannot prepay for one year using a credit card.
