I am thinking of getting the $5/month droplet here. How can you avoid being charged more than expected?

i.e. Are there facilities to stop the memory and disk usage going to high and to prevent exceeding the transfer limit?

You are only charged for what you use… if you use a $5 dollar droplet all month you will be charged $5… it’s awesome actually. I routinely spin up 40+ servers with api calls for load and platform testing and then spin them down again and my bill has yet to go past $17.00 or so.
