I think this will be fine, we don't delete accounts unless you instruct us to do so. Snapshot pricing is outlined on the /pricing page https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/

We're not a DNS registrar and at the current time of writing DNS services are no additional cost, as outlined here https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/dns/overview/

  • BTW, I'm reminded– while looking at Droplet backups today –to mention you should double-check this snapshot retention works well for you with a small test Droplet, before you go about deleting your actual Droplets. All the best!
