resizing your droplet in DO is pretty easy and straight forward. just login to your account, click the droplet and select resize from the left menu.

there are 2 type of resize,

  1. Flexible resize - you can upgrade or downgrade but store wont be change
  2. Permanent resize - you can only upgrade and this till upgrade your storage limit as well.
