Say you have a 2TB transfer limit and you go over it. How would the pricing work on that?

Currently, we recommend upgrading to a higher tier of transfer/larger Droplet if you expect to go over the traffic limit, but if you do breach the limit, you may want to reach out to

At this time, we are not billing for the additional traffic, but we do monitor for overages.

Hello, all

Droplets include free outbound data transfer, starting at 1,000 GiB/month for the smallest plan. Excess data transfer is billed at $0.01/GiB. For example, the cost of 1,000 GiB of overage is $10. Inbound bandwidth to Droplets is always free.
