Hi @czearart

When you stop paying, the account will be suspended for 14 days before the droplets are deleted. When in suspension, all droplets are shutdown.

Quote from
Balances are considered outstanding if a payment has failed to process on the first of the month, or if the value you have loaded via PayPal is not enough to pay the invoice in full. If you receive a “Server Termination Urgent” notice, you will need to contact DigitalOcean Support to remove the lock on your account to pay the outstanding balance. If we don’t hear from you within 14 days from when your account was suspended, your Droplets will be purged and data will not be available for recovery.
