I want to ask about Billing

Billing CentOS

I received the message with the following content :

  • You’ve been granted credit to use on your DigitalOcean account for $100.00. We’ve updated your balance, which you can view at https://www.digitalocean.com/billing. Please note that this credit will expire after 60 days if it's not used.

So, if I have created a VPS to use, will I be locked VPS after 60 days?
Thanks for the support team !

The VPS won't be locked after 60 days.

On day 60, any remaining credit will be zeroed out and you will begin accruing a balance, which you will have to pay at the end of the month.

For example:

  • You start with the $100/60-day credit today (Feb 9) and create a single $15/month 2 GB/2 vCPUs/60 GB SSD VPS.
  • 60 days later (on April 10) the $70 remaining credit will be zeroed out on your account, and your droplet will continue running at the cost of ~$0.53/day.
