Hi @fahaddos

This is the community forum (user-to-user support), so unless you’re willing to publicly share details of the charge, then we cannot help you and you must create a ticket in support of the control panel.

DigitalOcean charges based on per-hour-usage. Even if you power off a droplet, you still get charged, since you are reserving room on a physical server. Also various other things like Block Storage, Snapshots, Backup, Floating IP are part of charges.
